On its 75th anniversary, one of the most legendary radio broadcasts in history is revisited in this documentary, debuting on home video the same week PBS televises it.
Oliver Platt narrates the account of Orson Welles' 1938 Halloween-eve program that transferred author H.G.

Welles' daughter, Chris Welles Feder, and filmmaker and close Welles friend Peter Bogdanovich are among the interviewees. *** (Not rated)
