The Green Hornet (1940 TV Serial - Full Season )

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

A surprisingly smart show & series. The action is not terribly exciting as would be expected with a 1940's show but the dialogue and production suggests this was a high budget show when it was produced for it's time. Of course, The Green Hornet has been redone for TV in the 1960's and more recently in 2011 for the big screen. You can watch the whole original show above by clicking through the playlist. 8/10 Stars
