Orson The Alien
*adapted H.G. Wells' novel and Orson Welles' play by Terry Bisson, Brian Smith and George Zarr
As Orson Welles begins his notorious 1938 airing of War of the Worlds, two seemingly unconnected sets of people have their lives changed forever by it. One is the crew of a passing alien space ship who mistake it for reality and the other is a pair of thieves and the woman they encounter while robbing her place of business. Hilarity ensues.
I no longer believe his appearance in The Starlost marks the low point of Walter Koenig's career.
