Ep. 02-14: The War of the Worlds (1953)

The residents of a small California town are excited and curious when a flaming meteor shoots from the sky and lands in the hills. But upon investigation, their joy quickly turns to despair when they discover that the meteor has passengers who are not very friendly and intend to destroy the world city by city with seemingly indestructible force. Will humanity survive?

Despite its age, 1953’s The War of the Worlds is an immensely entertaining movie. From its lavish technicolor production and academy-award winning special effects to its universally appealing story, beginning in a small town and swelling to a sweeping world-wide saga. Join us as we discuss how this story perseveres from its publication by H.G Wells (1897), to the infamous radio-drama (1938) by Orson Welles, to multiple cinematic productions including this 1953 classic and Spielberg’s 2005 version. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys observes the catastrophic worldwide destruction of a Martian invasion, and how overcoming dire circumstances sometimes requires more than just the power of the human spirit.
