Did You Know?
When Britt and Kato are watching themselves on the news, running away from vandalizing the statue, Kato does not see himself on-screen. He reasons he is "too fast for the camera". When Bruce Lee
played Kato in The Green Hornet
(1966), they filmed his fight scenes at a faster rate, because he was "too fast for the camera". See more
At the reporters meeting, the assembled reporters reference the green hornet "shooting out a traffic camera" as one of the news stories. But it had not happened yet. See more
