Charlie, a keen mikemcguff.com blog reader, emailed me this very funny observation about the 1953 version of War of the Worlds. If you fast forward to 2:35 of the above clip, there is a musician that looks a lot like KTRK Channel 13 anchor Dave Ward!
Is this actor even wearing a channel 13 pin on his collar? Do time machines really exist? Did the aliens do this?
