Green Hornet – US One Sheet

£495.00

The 1974 re-packaging of The Green Hornet (also released as “Kato”), the 1966 William Beaudine & Norman Foster crime costumed superhero fantasy action thriller (“Written by Jerry Thomas”; a full-length feature version of episodes of the TV show, where Bruce Lee‘s Kato character was prominent) starring Bruce Lee (“Son of the Dragon”; as Kato), Van Williams (in the title role as The Green Hornet), Wende Wagner, Lloyd Gough, and Walter Brooke. This “feature” was made to cash in on Bruce Lee‘s recent tremendous success with “Enter the Dragon” and his Hong Kong martial arts movies, and two one-sheets were made to promote it, and one even includes an image of Bruce Lee holding nunchucks, which comes from Enter the Dragon and NOT from The Green Hornet TV series, which is the height of deceptiveness!
Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had fine surface paper loss on parts of some foldlines (typical of high-gloss posters of this period). It also had a few small tears and tiny paper loss in the left and top borders. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
