Did You Know?
'The Green Hornet' was originally a radio show, first broadcast in 1936 and running to 1952. Although there were two serials in 1940 (The Green Hornet
(1940) with 13 chapters and The Green Hornet Strikes Again!
(1940) with 15 chapters), the last six chapters of the first one re-edited into a 100-minute feature and several episodes of The Green Hornet
(1966) were edited together into a pair of 90-minute films, this is the first original feature-length Hollywood treatment of the costumed hero. See more
