In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Jul 12, 2010

The Green Hornet (Britt Reid) was the son of the nephew of the Lone Ranger. 

Like the Lone Ranger, he fought crime though law officers thought he was an outlaw. 

And like the Lone Ranger, he had a foreign sidekick (Tonto for the Lone Ranger, Kato - a Philipino - for the Green Hornet).

The program ran from 1936 to 1952, and though several actors played Britt Reid, Al Hodge is best remembered for the role.

This episode, Torpedo on Wheels, originally aired on November 14, 1942.
