The Green Hornet and Kato return in this exciting collection of digitally remastered and restored radio adventures, working outside the law to battle kidnappers, rackets, fraud, and other sinister and nefarious enterprises of the criminal underworld.
Featured in these programs is Al Hodge, the first actor to play the role of millionaire newspaperman Britt Reid, alias The Green Hornet. Join Hodge - along with Raymond Toyo as Kato (and The Black Beauty!), Gilbert Shea as Mike Axford, and Lenore Allman as Miss Case - as he "hunts the biggest of all game: public enemies that even the G-Men cannot reach!"
The twenty episodes featured here are among the earliest known recordings to survive from the Al Hodge era. Sixteen of them (taken from the original transcription discs) have not been heard since their initial broadcast in 1939, and the remaining four are available for the first time in unedited form - complete, uncut, and straight from the original masters.
Also includes a Program Guide by Martin Grams, Jr. and Terry Salomonson with photos and background information about the show.
