Friday's Favorite OTR

Green Hornet: “A Pair of Nylons” 3/19/46

A gang of con artists are setting up in small store fronts for one day per store, selling stockings to women and falsely claiming that they are real nylon.

This particular Macguffin isn’t the most exciting hook in the history of mystery fiction, but it leads into a strong story. Daily Sentinel reporter Mike Axeford looks into the racket and ends up getting captured. The police then do some sharp detective work and are soon raiding the gang’s storehouse, capturing several henchmen. But the gang leader and Axeford are nowhere to be found. So it’s up to the Green Hornet to “rescue” one of the henchmen and trick him into revealing the location of the boss’s hideout.
