I've always wanted to hear Welles' War of the Worlds radio broadcast. I hope they fully include it, instead of just some excerpts.

Looks like I will have to double dip just for War of the Worlds. The documentary was great yet I thought the 2 hour docu for Cleopatra was so much better.

How are the two films related, chief?!


I've been meaning to get that Cleo DVD just for the much-praised docu, for a long time now, but DVDs of films I actually love have gotten in my way!


Welles' War Of The Worlds radio is beyond legendary now - it's a great piece of work. Welles was something else!

Simple. Both movies had a troubled production that makes for fascinating viewing.

Ah, "I see", said the blind man!


The production problems related to Cleo far outweighted the problems with the Kane, so I would imagine that the Cleo documentary would be better, as there is a bigger fire in the furnace there!


If I can get the DVD for under £15 at some point, I'll get it.

Cheers, Oscar.
