Whatever Became Of 68-xx-xx Green Hornet (HQ)

The Green Hornet is a masked superhero, created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker for an American radio program in the 1930s. The character also has appeared in film serials in the 1940s, a network television program in the 1960s, and multiple comic book series from the 1940s to the present (2010). Though various incarnations sometimes change details, in most incarnations the Green Hornet is Britt Reid, a newspaper publisher by day who goes out in his masked "Green Hornet" identity at night to fight crime as a vigilante, accompanied by his similarly masked Asian manservant Kato -- who drives their car, equipped with advanced technology, called "Black Beauty".

Here is an episode of "Whatever Became Of" from 1968 featuring an interview with Al Hodge who played the Green Hornet on radio from January 1936 until January 1943. Albert E. Hodge (April 18, 1912 - March 19, 1979) was also known for playing space adventurer Captain Video on the DuMont Television Network from December 15, 1950 to April 1, 1955.
