THE GREEN HORNET STRIKES AGAIN (1941)
Created in 1936 by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker, originally for an excellent radio series, this second movie serial from 1941, was in 15 chapter. Before television, people went to movie theatres to watch their news and entertainment, and as it was the case for movie serials, each chapter was screened at movie theaters for one week, and ended with a cliffhanger to encourage fans to return. For this movie serial, Gordon Jones played the role of Britt Reid, publisher of The Sentinel newspaper and the Green Hornet, as Keye Luke played the role of Kato, Wade Boteler played Michael Axford, the cop-turned-reporter, and Anne Nagel played the secretary Leonore Case. PS: I did 5 audio patch gap repairs on this video, using other sources, to replace missing audio portions in chapter 6, 11, 13 and 15; It's all good now.
In more recent years, remastered golden age comic book archives have been made available by Dynamite, as well as an excellent Year One story, modern next generation series, and crossover events with other great classics like The Spider, The Avenger, Doc Savage, the Shadow, Black Bat, Green Lama, Black Terror and others. Moonstone as also released Green Hornet Chronicles volumes, anthologies featuring all-new, original crime fiction tales.
