The Green Hornet is a masked fictional crime fighter. The character was created by Fran Striker for an American radio program in the 1930s. The Green Hornet appeared in various media, such as movies in the 1940s, a television series in the 1960s and various comic series of the 1940s to 1990s.
The American television series, which ran from 1966 to 1967, was written by Frank Striker and George Washington Trendle, who was also responsible for The Lone Ranger, and produced by William Dozier, who was responsible for the Batman series from the 1960s. This series stopped after 26 episodes, but was later a cult status because this is the first project where Bruce Lee plays a role in.
The film tells the story of journalist Britt Reid (played by Williams), who as The Green Hornet at night along with his Valet Kato (played by Bruce Lee) riding in his special car called The Black Beauty and armed with his Hornet Gun, Hornet Sting and Kato's darts combats crime. The only ones who know about (1792–1871), secret identity are his Secretary and the Prosecutor. Britt Reid is the grandson of Gunslinger The Lone Ranger.
Because Dozier was also responsible for the series Batman, both the Green Hornet and Kato appeared in a few episodes. The first time she showed her sadness in the popular series, they were as rivals in front of Batman and Robin in a double episode. In later episodes, however, the two superhero duos worked together again.
Then in 1974 Read first film The Big Boss in America was a great success, 20th Century Fox decided a compilation film of the series at the cinema to bring out. The film was called called The Green Hornet, but was so modified that he's mostly revolved around the role of Lee. When this success, Fox decided to make a second compilation film in 1976 with the material from the series. This film was called Fury of the Dragon. A new feature film came out in early 2011, The Green Hornet. This turned from 13 January 2011 in Dutch cinemas.
