Friday's Favorite OTR

The Green Hornet: "Paroled for Revenge" 5/16/44

A racketeer is paroled from prison and immediately plans to take revenge on Britt Reid, the man who put him away. He's unaware, of course, that Reid is actually the Green Hornet.

But the racketeer and a couple of henchmen still manage to snatch and imprison Reid. Fortunately for our hero, his aide Kato keeps his head and manages to trail the bad guys to their hideout. This, combined with a lack of honor amongst thieves (one of them tries to sell out the others for some reward money) allows the Hornet and Kato to get the drop on them.

As is usual for the shows produced at WXYZ in Detroit (The Green Hornet, The Lone Ranger and Challenge of the Yukon), this episode combines a strong script with great production values. It all adds up to a half-hour of fine storytelling.

This episode is available to hear or download HERE.
