YouTube Wednesday: THE GREEN HORNET "Secret of the Sally Bell"

Continuing our weekly feature "YouTube Wednesday"...
The only person who knows where a shipment of illegal drugs is hidden on a salvaged freighter is accidentally rendered comatose before he can tell The Green Hornet and Kato.
They take him to a nearby hospital for treatment, but, after they leave, the man's associates kidnap him...and the attending doctor.
Now our dynamic duo have to a) rescue the doctor, b) keep the comatose guy alive, and c) stop the criminals from acquiring the drugs.
It's cross and double-cross as The Hornet allies himself with the crooks to accomplish his own goals.
But the gangsters have no intention of keeping their side of the deal, either...
Side notes:
For the first time, we see the Black Beauty operated by remote control, including maneuvering and firing it's front-mounted rockets at a sniper trying to kill The Hornet and Kato.
One of the running gags on both Batman and The Green Hornet was showing characters on one series watching the other series on tv! In this ep, the crooks are watching Batman when it's interrupted by a news bulletin about The Green Hornet leaving a wounded man (their drug contact) at a hospital.
More location shooting, this time at a commercial Los Angeles shipyard seen in a number of films and tv series, most notably Escape from the Planet of the Apes.
Here's the 13th episode..."Secret of the Sally Bell".

Let the cry ring out..."Have no fear! The Fans of Bronze are HERE!"

He helped those who needed help.
And now one of his illustrators needs help...
Terry Allan has been helping out Doc Savage/Marvel Comics/sci-fi & fantasy cover artist Bob Larkin the past couple of years doing exclusive projects trying to help Bob raise much needed cash.
Bob’s wife Fran is suffering from brain cancer and the resulting surgeries has left her less than 100%. As a result, Bob is now her full time caregiver and has had to cut back his workload to care for her.
Terry's been pulling together professionals from all over to sign books with all profits going to help the Larkin’s cover the long term costs of medications and co-pays that insurance doesn’t cover.
Among the items available...
LOST SAVAGE: Larkin's Bantam Doubles/Ominibus covers presented the way they should have been!
14 11x17" prints composited from the original art with the classic Bantam paperback cover design / trade dress! Comes in an embossed portfolio. 
The first commercial release of the series, remixed, remasted and restored to full stereo.
(Far superior to the internet downloads!)
PLUS: A new documentary with behind-the-scenes interviews!
AND: A limited-edition 12 x 13 litho of the cover art only thru Fantom Press!
There's lots more, including original art, lithos (like the one at top), and signed Doc Savage books and comics by Larkin and other big-name pros.
All profits go to help Bob Larkin.
Here's your chance to both help one of the greats of the sci-fi/fantasy genre AND acquire some kool kollectibles for yourself, or as Christmas presents for the SavageFan in your life!

Please repost these links where ever you can. The more who know, the better.

Let the cry ring out..."Have no fear! The Fans of Bronze are HERE!"
And they're here to help!

Give Comics Go Pink to Fight Cancer Collectibles at Christmas!

More than 50 of King Features Syndicate's comic strip artists did their Sunday, October 10th 2010, strips with a pink color theme, a mention about fighting breast cancer, or both.
Besides the strips themselves, King Features produced a line of kool kollectibles using the art from those strips that you can order HERE.
A percentage of each product's cost goes directly to to pay for cancer research.
For more info, and to see the complete set of strips from 10/10/10, go HERE.
The money goes to cancer research, and they'd make GREAT Christmas gifts for a comic-strip-loving breast cancer survivor or in remembrance of a loved one who passed away due to breast cancer!
