Night America Trembled, The (Studio One) (1957)
Starring: Warren Beatty, Vincent Gardenia
Plot: Another classic dramatic presentation brought to you by Studio One, originally a radio program brought out as an Emmy winning weekly television program shown on the CBS television network from 1948 to 1958. This particular episode centers on the tale of the 1939 Halloween night radio broadcast of The Mercury Theater's "The War of The Worlds". Narrated by Edward R. Murrow, this program presented a dramatization of the studio end of the broadcast as well as audience reactions through vignettes. Guest stars abound in this episode, which opened the tenth season of this program, including Ed Asner, Vincent Gardenia, James Coburn, Warren Oates and a youthful Warren Beatty.
