Green Hornet Tidbits

Britt Reid (Van Williams) is handed management of his father Dan's newspaper, The Daily Sentinel in Washington D.C. With this comes a mandate to do good in the world, which this family comes by naturally as Dad is a grandnephew of John Reid, also know as - The Lone Ranger.

The Green Hornet is the great-grand-nephew of the Lone Ranger, you ask skeptically. Yes, because George Trendle created both and a plug is a plug is a plug.

The association inspires Britt and so he sets up shop as the Green Hornet, a crimefighting masked crusader. (Sound familiar?) His manservant, Kato (Bruce Lee) assists him in his deeds of derring-do. Only he, Reid's secretary and the District Attorney (Walter Brooke) know the Green Hornet's true identity.

Yes, THAT Bruce Lee, later to star in a gadzillion martial arts films.

The plot twist. The Green Hornet is considered a criminal by police and so has to beat a hasty retreat after nabbing the bad guys.

Passings

Bruce Lee died in 1973 of cerebral edema, Lloyd Gough in 1984 of aortic aneurism, Walter Brooke in 1984 of emphysema and Wende Wagner in 1997 of cancer.
