These days, almost every celebrity seems to have a multimedia platform: TV, movie, book, website, etc. But the Green Hornet was among the first multimedia stars. The story of Britt Reid, the media mogul turned crime-fighter, unfolded as a radio serial in the 1930s, and over the decades was featured in books, comics and TV. In addition to Reid, the new movie will include other memorable characters, including trusted assistants Kato (I can't help but smile, thinking of Inspector Clouseau wrestling with his houseboy, Cato) and Lenore "Casey" Case. If nothing else, it should make for some bonding between the generations.
