This is an outstanding collection for fans and those who might want to know more about the Green Hornet. The 1940s serials and movies are great but nothing can compare to the 1960s TV show with Bruce Lee. Mr Lee was truely amazing. He played this part as a serious character. There is a short interview with him where he demonstrates some of his moves. ~Mike
