Green Hornet - Old Time Radio
Vintage Radio: Crime-Detective

Green Hornet

Green Hornet was a popular crime-detective and adventure show aired from 1936 to 1952. Al Hodge starred as Britt Reid, the masked, globe-trotting crime fighter known as the Green Hornet. Britt Reid's sidekick Kato, the "faithful Pilipino valet" was played by Todutaro Hayashi. Lenore Allman played Lenore 'Casey' Case, Reid's secretary. Jim Irwin played the reporter, Michael Axford. Green Hornet was known for its striking theme music Flight of the Bumblebee in the opening.

For many years, radio fans of The Green Hornet were greeted with a memorable opening signature, "He hunts the biggest of all game! Public enemies who try to destroy our America!"

At the end of each show, a newspaper boy would be heard hawking the evening special showcasing Green Hornet's heroic deeds.
