- The Green Hornet
- A History Of Radio, Motion Pictures, Comics,
- by Martin Grams, Jr. and Terry Salomonson
- Note: Over 816 pages thick.
Green Hornet was one of radio's best-known and most distinctive juvenile
adventure shows. Britt Reid, publisher of The Daily Sentinel, was in the
position to learn facts about criminals that only the police had access.
Armed with this knowledge, a gas gun that rendered foes momentarily
unconscious, and a black speedster known as The Black Beauty, he donned
the guise of The Green Hornet. Feared by the underworld and sought after
by the police, the masked vigilante fought racketeers, gangsters and
saboteurs. When the police were faced with red tape, The Green Hornet,
with his sidekick Kato, an oriental valet, circumvented protocol and
legal procedure in their determined battle to put away crooks.
The Green Hornet first appeared on radio in 1936, he has made the
transition to motion pictures, comics and television. Very little has
been written about the masked marvel and what has been recorded in
magazine articles and encyclopedias prior to this publication has never
explored the character as deeply... or accurately. For the first time,
the complete story of this crime fighter is unmasked, as prolific TV and
radio historians Martin Grams and Terry Salomonson usher you into the
complete history of the radio series from the creation to conception
sketches, reprints from production files to the untold adventures,
biographic details of the cast and the characters they played (including
Mike Axford, Kato, Gunnigan, Lenore Case, Linda Travis, Ed Lowry,
Clicker Binney, Commissioner Higgins, etc.) and background information
is all provided under one cover. Also included are details of the two
cliffhanger serials produced by Universal in the early forties, the
unaired 1952 television pilot, the long-running popularity of the comic
books and the William Dozier television series (1966-67) starring Van
Williams and Bruce Lee. A complete episode guide documents every
adventure including unproduced scripts and plot ideas. Whether you are a
casual fan or a serious enthusiast of the series, here is everything you
want to know about The Green Hornet!
