Publisher's Summary

This episode of The Green Hornet first aired on October 5, 1946.

The Green Hornet debuted on a Detroit station, WXYZ, on January 31, 1936, and later aired on the Mutual and ABC Blue networks until its final broadcast on December 5, 1952. The masked crime fighter was the secret identity of newspaper publisher Britt Reid, who relied on his valet, Kato, and a supercharged roadster, the Black Beauty. Al Hodge portrayed The Green Hornet during the series' first seven seasons, followed by Donovan Faust, Robert Hall, and Jack McCarthy. The series was created by the same team that brought The Lone Ranger to the air.

    When Britt smiled and cooly left the senators office, classic!


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A true sense of realism, emotion, and activity!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Britt phoned Masterson, and the inevitable changed.
