Storyline

An old military tank is stolen, and Bradford Devlin, a war hero now on death row, believes he knows who did it. He contacts Daily Sentinel owner Britt Reid to tell him his old tank crew likely swiped the vehicle in order to spring him from jail. Reid believes Devlin is innocent and knows that an attempted jailbreak will ruin any chance for a pardon. He sets out as the Green Hornet to track down Devlin's old war crew and proposes a deal - Devlin in exchange for the vehicle. But when the crooks figure he is bluffing about Devlin, the Green Hornet and Kato are forced into a fight with the tank. Written by Twenty Penguins

OH! Miss Case! (For some reason, she stands out.)
10 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THIS MARKS SORT of a different entry into this legendary, albeit all too short loved series. The plot line here owes more to the OCEANS' ELEVEN school of caper stories, rather than to the standard scumbag underworld vs. the law.

INASMUCH AS THIS story and episode dates back a full 50 years, the former army buddies were described as veterans from the Korean War. The Vietnam Conflict was still raging and hence, the highly overworked ploy of the "psychotic Nam veteran" hadn't been born yet.

Although THE CAST was kept taut in both numbers in both those featured as well as any extra "uncredited" players, the on screen action does not suffer. The show does its usual showcasing of the regular characters in moving the plot along. We have Van Williams (Hornet/Britt Reid), Wende Wagner (a knockout of a beauty as Miss Lenore Case, the Green Hornet's confidant), Lloyd Gough (as comic relief ex-cop turned reporter, Mike Axford). Joining Bruce Lee (Kato) in the action was Walter Brooke (as D.A. Frank Scanlon); who gets to mascaraed as a prison veteran, hard-boiled yegg.

THIS EPISODE HAS not one, but two actors of guest star status. Both Ralph Meeker and Raymond St. Jacques turn in their usual fine performances and are most convincing in their portrayals.

THIS IS ONE series that saw both the heights and the depths of the ratings game. THE GREEN HORNET started out like a rising sky rocket; but alas, quickly turned its arc back toward terra firma. We have always lamented the all too short run that it had in network first showing.
