The news around town seems to have been running into a dry spell lately, and there’s no need for the Green Hornet to fight crime. Jim Reed’s secretary notices his sanguine attitude and connects it with the Green Hornet llaying low. She doesn’t suspect something… does she?
Even top news dog, Lawry, goes after a human interest story of a man who has been cheated out of his life savings to sell his song ideas to a phoney publishing house. Another scam that operates just small enough, and barely inside the legal limits to stay off the radar of the justice system. It’s all the Green Hornet needs to spring into action and give the racketeers a taste of their own medicine.
