The Hollywood Hills house that belonged to the original master of panic, actor and director Orson Welles, has come on the market at $1,285,000.

While the deep-voiced Welles' rendition of "The War of the Worlds" may have evoked fear in the hearts of all who listened on that Halloween in 1938, there is nothing frightful about this Southern Colonial home that sits on a private, gated lot surrounded by fruit trees, palms and mountain views. The three-story home was built in 1921 and has retained much of its original charm. There is also a pool and guesthouse.
