VCI is excited to announce the “movie edition” version of the original 1940 classic “The Green Hornet”. With the help of Green Hornet historian Martin Grams Jr. VCI has edited an 84 minute feature cut movie from the original 13 chapter serial. The city is faced with rising crime and increased racketeering activity. Intrepid newspaper editor, Britt Reid (Gordon Jones) becomes the crime fighter the Green Hornet to take on the bad guys. As far as the police are concerned, the Hornet himself is the criminal. This misunderstanding enables Reid to operate “outside the law” to battle evil and injustice. Working along side the Hornet is the brilliant inventor/sidekick Kato (Keye Luke), the only person who knows the true identity of the Hornet. Watch as our heroes fight an infamous racket and put an end to the menace infecting their city.
