1938 - Albert was just 2 years old when on October 30th, a Sunday, The Mercury Theatre on the Air broadcast Orson Welles' special Halloween show The War of the World's. A clever take on H.G.

Because of the realistic nature of the "news," there was a public outcry the next day, calling for regulation by the FCC.

It's believed that the accident was caused when Princess Grace, who was driving, had a mild stroke.
