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

So Britt, here we are again. Sent home after another schoolyard fight. I know you miss your mother. So do I. But I have to take care of 750 employees, and you have to take care of yourself. Still that seems to be asking too much.
But I was trying to stop some bullies...
