Read This Review Before You Buy
R. G. Bright | 06/30/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD release is SUPERB. I can say that because I have purchased numerous releases for the same serial, including VHS and unauthorized DVD releases. The picture quality is sharp and clear and evidently from the studio masters. The sound is excellent and the detail level is superb.

The serial is chaptered so you can select which chapter you want to watch or you can watch them all from beginning to end without interruption. Old-Time Radio shows are a bonus.

Best part about this release is the liner notes. Authored by Martin Grams, it reveals just how and where they filmed each scene for the chapters, character actors in small roles (such as an unbilled Alan Ladd) and more. I recommend you read the liner notes before watching the serial so you have plenty to look out for during viewing. Makes viewing more fun. (And according to the end of the notes, the author has an authorized book on THE GREEN HORNET coming out in early 2010!)

Overall, quality, liner notes, radio shows, bonus features, this is as good as it gets. If you question whether this is worth the price, take it from a Hornet fan. Grab this."
G.H. quality makes other serial distributors green with envy

"Just when I thought Image Entertainment had the lock on top quality Universal serial restoration, along comes VCI with its masterful work on The Green Hornet. The company's technicians must have burned the midnight oil rejuvenating this beauty. There's simply no way this vintage cliffhanger could have looked any better on first release! The "buzz" is this independent distributor has more lovingly restored goodies in the pipeline.
I'll be waiting! For its quality, this classic entry is worth every dime."
The Green Hornet- VCI Strikes Again!

"All year I looked forward to the Green Hornet serials coming to dvd & I wasn't disappointed! VCI has done a magnificent job of restoring these 2 films to their original glory! The picture quality just couldn't be better. The story & action for both films is great. After reading the biography for George W. Trendle on the extras menu it 's no surprise. Mr. Trendle supervised EVERYTHING about the production of these movies right down to the actors playing Green Hornet & Kato. All aspects of these serials met with his satisfaction before Universal dared to shoot 1 foot of film! I do wish however that biographies for Anne Nagel & Wade Boteler had been included. Both these actors did many serials for Universal & they deserved a mention. But that's ok. All of the other extras are great too including the photo galleries & 2 episodes of the Green Hornet radio program. Also Green Hornet facts & trivia gives a lot of background info I was not aware of before. Now I can't wait to see the new Green Hornet movie in 2010!"
