The Green Hornet

Show generally

Revealing mistake: "Give 'Em Enough Rope": Reid's rear view mirror, missing in all the medium shots (processed in-studio with an obvious rear-screen projection), mysteriously reappears in full shot when his Chrysler pulls into the car shop.

Continuity mistake: "Crime Wave": Kato activates the clamps that prepare Reid's car for the flip-over that will reveal the Green Hornet's "Black Beauty." We see the clamps hook themselves to the car in close-up. But in the next, wider shot of the car turning over, the clamps have disappeared.

Visible crew/equipment: "Ace in the Hole": When Reid is showing the DA his closed-circuit video of Mike, several pieces of white tape stuck to the carpet are visible. These are blocking marks, put there to show the actors where to stand.

Trivia: According to his creators, Britt Reid is a descendant of the Lone Ranger's nephew, Dan Reid. Apparently the "masked man syndrome" ran in the family.

Trivia: Kato was Japanese when The Green Hornet premiered as a radio series in 1936. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, Kato suddenly became a Korean. In the 1960s, when future martial arts superstar Bruce Lee (who was Chinese) assumed the role for television, Kato was meant to regain his Japanese heritage. But his ethnicity was never mentioned on the show, and publicity simply referred to Kato as "Asian."

Trivia: The Green Hornet series often paid tribute to another show on the air at the same time, its more popular rival in the TV superhero department. Whenever a Green Hornet character turned on a TV set, the show on the screen was invariably Batman..
