Orson Welles 1937

Orson Welles

George Orson Welles (born May 6, 1915), best known as Orson Welles, was an American actor who infamously broadcast the realistic radio dramatization of H.G. Wells' science-fiction novel The War of the Worlds, causing widespread panic in the United States of America in October 1938. This brought a harsh response from the White House, as the government at that time was already secretly aware of the alien threat of the Chimera. The public upbraiding proved devastating for Welles, in which it severely ruined his career.
