Publisher's Summary

He hunts the biggest of all game! Public enemies who try to destroy our America!
Britt Reid, millionaire bachelor and manager of his father's powerful newspaper, donned a disguise to smash rackets and expose crooks, spies and saboteurs who had managed to evade the long arm of the law. With his faithful sidekick Kato lurking in the shadows, a gas gun in his hand, a mask upon his face and The Black Beauty in the garage, he became The Green Hornet! Both police and the underworld sought this mysterious figure - the former to face trial for alleged crimes, and the latter to avenge the many defeats suffered at his hands.

Another Good One

Radio is a lost art. This is a good way to know what we missed back then and a little history at the same time. Loved it.
