Trivia

Upon the suggestion of his 10 year old son Marco, producer Laurence Joachim licensed the rights to turn The Green Hornet (1966) into two feature length movies, making this first one the fifth biggest grossing Bruce Lee film ever. Larry and Marco took the best from the 1966 TV show, and edited them together with added fight scenes. See more »

Okay But I Would Go With The Follow Up "Movie"
22 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

In 1974 they edited together footage from the 1960s Green Hornet series to make this "movie". I am told this was a smash hit in some parts of the world and it even got a follow up show called Fury Of The Dragon. The second "Fury" show is one hell of a lot better than this first "movie".

To my way of thinking, this 1974 show does not get the best episodes or best moments of the short lived Green Hornet series. It even features the two-part space invasion show which is hardly a classic. But I am only a very mild fan of this series so perhaps I am not the best person to judge it? Whatever the case, if you want a 90 minute or so blast from the past, I would go with Fury Of The Dragon.
