AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

War of the Worlds: Outtakes

  • Aired: 10/29/2013
  • 01:18
  • Rating: NR
To bring freshness to the story behind Orson Welles' famous broadcast, producers used letters written by listeners right after hearing War of the Worlds. Actors delivered monologues of parts of these letters as if they were archival interviews - you can see it in the film. Here, actors have some fun at the end of the day describing what it's like to play a character from the 1930s.
