Overview

George W. Trendle's masked crime fighter The Green Hornet originated in a radio serial during the 1930s and swept up legions of fans in that venue, prior to his movie debut in 1940. Significantly, the first cinematic appearances of The Hornet didn't occur in a feature but in a couple of back-to-back movie serializations designed to transport the magic of the episodic radio format to the big screen. The first of these serials, the 13-chapter Green Hornet, appeared in 1940. Amid a city rife with crime and racketeering, newspaper editor Britt Reit (Gordon Jones of Oklahoma) dons a superhero outfit and emerges as the intrepid, hotfooted crimefighter The Green Hornet. The police mistakenly perceive the Hornet as a villain, which enables him to work outside the boundaries of the law. Assisting The Hornet is his faithful Asian sidekick/inventor, Kato (Keye Luke, the only individual in the world able to recognize the superhero's real identity. The serial appears in its full and complete version (as it originally ran theatrically) in this box set.
