The Green Hornet (1940) is a Universal movie serial based on The Green Hornet radio series by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker. Newspaper publisher Britt Reid, secretly The Green Hornet, and his Korean valet Kato investigate and expose several seemingly separate rackets. This leads them into continued conflict with the Leader, the criminal mastermind behind the Syndicate and the individual crimes.


Gordon Jones as Britt Reid (The Green Hornet)
Al Hodge as the (uncredited) voice of the Green Hornet. Hodge played the Hornet on the original radio series.
Anne Nagel as Lenore "Casey" Case, Reid's secretary
Keye Luke as Kato, who is Korean in this serial rather than the original Japanese nationality of the character due to anti-Japanese sentiment rising at the time. This was two years prior to the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and the USA's entry into the war (all thirteen episodes are copyrighted 1939). The radio version dropped the nationality from the introductory sequence, included passing references to him being Filipino in dialogue, and only years later added that to the standard intro.

These Serial Cliffhangers are terrific entertainment, however, the video quality is not nearly as high as the suspense in each chapter. What we're saying is, if you're used to high definition video, this is a massive step down. We recommend that before you buy, watch an episode through one of our free options.

Buy on DVD for only $6.00
