Green Hornet 75th Anniversary DVD

This 4 disk collector’s edition brings both The Green Hornet¬† (1939) and The Green Hornet Strikes Again (1940) together in one set. VCI Worked with Universal to remaster the original serials, and the results were wonderful. All the episodes were crisp and clean with the exception of the last half of episode 9 (I think), as the original had deteriorated to the point where they were unable to clean it, so the quality suffers a bit. If you are new to the Green Hornet Serials, they are black and white and each episode runs about 25 minutes.

In addition to the serials there are a few extras including 4 radio episodes (The Parking Lot Racket [10/31/39], The Highway that Graft Wrote [10/3/40], Paroles for Sale [8/16/41], The Corpse that wasn’t there[2/28/43]), “I AM… The Green Hornet” (a “bio” of the Green Hornet) , before and after restoration, and a photo gallery. The quality is a giant step up from the Super Hero Classics DVD from Pacific Entertainment I had previously, but then again I only paid a dollar for that one. (and don’t get me started about the abomination that was the 2011 remake, don’t they even bother to look at the source material before “basing” a movie off of something?)
