Archive of original Final draft scripts for four episodes of the 1966 action/sci-fi TV series. Included are scripts for "The Hunters and the Hunted" (season 1, episode 11), "Deadline for Death" (season 1, episode 12), "The Secret of the Sally Bell" (season 1, episode 13), and "Hornet Save Thyself" (season 1, episode 23). Included is a brief note, mimeographed, from Stan Hough, assistant director for several films throughout the 1950s and 1960s, but his association with "The Green Hornet" is unknown. Notations in holograph ink on the front wrapper of each script, including the name of Norman Foster (marked through on "The Hunters and the Hunted" script), who directed one episode of the series, "The Praying Mantis," George W. Trendle and Fran Striker developed the Green Hornet character in the 1930s, initially for a radio series (1936-1952), followed by two movie serials: "The Green Hornet" (1940) and "The Green Hornet Strikes Again!" (1941), both directed by Ford Beebe. After a brief hiatus, the character was revived with the 1966-1967 American Broadcasting Company (ABC) TV series, "The Green Hornet," featuring Van Williams as Britt Reid, and Bruce Lee as Kato in their first starring roles. Kato, in particular, greatly boosted Lee's popularity and the public's general interest in martial arts. The two appeared as their crime-fighting title roles in two episodes of ABC's "Batman" series, strangely as anti-heroes: "A Piece of the Action" (season 2, episode 51, 1967) and "Batman's Satisfaction" (season 2, episode 52, 1967). Several episodes were edited together and released as a feature, "The Green Hornet," in 1974.Along with producer William Dozier's other notable project, the 1966-1968 TV series, "Batman," "The Green Hornet" would be short-lived. Still, the crime-fighting man-in-the-mask with superhero-like abilities, or "Mystery Men," like Batman, The Green Hornet, and Green Arrow, remain as popular as ever. "The Hunters and the Hunted": top-level racketeers are murdered, each one with a different weapon. The Green Hornet is contacted by an informant, who is killed before he can help. With help from Kato, the Green Hornet searches for an important list that will incriminate the criminals. "Deadline for Death": reporter Mike Axford is connected to a series of robberies, linked by the fact that he interviewed each victim. When Axford is jailed on charges of murder, his boss Britt Reid sets out to uncover the truth. As the Green Hornet, Reid investigates several leads, with the help of his trusted sidekick, Kato, however, capturing the crook without destroying their witness proves to be a difficult task."The Secret of Sally Bell": Two million dollars worth of narcotics have been smuggled into the country, and the only man who knows where they are is in a coma. The Green Hornet presumes the whereabouts of the drugs, and tracks down the head of the operation. He offers his help in locating the drugs, pretending to want a piece of the action. But the crooks have no plans of sharing."Hornet, Save Thyself": Green Hornet is caught in a frame-up, accused of killing an enemy with a gun he held at the scene of the crime. He goes on the run and tries to prove his innocence.All scripts in blue titled wrappers, noted as FINAL on the front wrappers, dated variously between September 20, 1966, and December 30, 1966, with credits for executive producer William Dozier, and producers Richard Bluel, and Stan Shpetner (1 script).
