Fascinating documentary for one of the best films in history
26 October 2009 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

The fact that George Pal's "War of the Worlds" ranks in the top 30 of the American Film Institutes Top 100 films of all time is just one tidbit provided by Ann Robinson, actress who appeared as Sylvia Van Buren in the science fiction classic. Robinson, along with others associated with/interested with the film (including co-star Gene Barry, special effects legend Ray Harryhausen, author Justin Humphreys, historian Bob Burns, and actor Robert Cornthwaite), provides some illuminating facts about the production.

Along with giving the background "making of" information, the documentary also does a lot of "name-dropping" of Hollywood luminaries that also had an interest in the Wells classic, including actor/director Orson Welles, producer Cecil B. DeMille, and Sir Alfred Hitchcock who himself wanted to turn the story into film.

The documentary, found as one of the special features on the special DVD edition of the film, is well worth repeat viewings.
