YouTube Wednesday: THE GREEN HORNET "Bad Bet on a 459-Silent"

Continuing our weekly feature "YouTube Wednesday"...
One of the problems pretending to be a criminal, as The Green Hornet does, is that you're as likely to be wounded or killed by police as by criminals!
And that's exactly what happens here!
Investigating the possibility that crooked police are looting crime scenes before their honest comrades show up, the Hornet is caught escaping from a break-in location, and shot by legitimately-responding cops. ("459-Silent" is police code in this city for a silent burglar alarm.)
He escapes, wounded, but can't go to a hospital since there's an all-points-bulletin out for a wounded Green Hornet, and even the Sentinel's respected publisher would be hard-pressed to explain how he had a gunshot wound in exactly the same spot on his body where the legendary verdant villain was shot! (Plus, the bullet could be forensically-matched to the gun of the policeman who shot the Hornet!)
How will Britt and Kato...
1) Get medical treatment for the wounded hero while avoiding connecting Reid and the Hornet, and having CSIs expose the incriminating evidence (the bullet)?
2) Solve the problem of the criminally-inclined cops, and save Mike Axford, who thinks the Hornet is responsible for the robberies, and plans to trap the wounded criminal, not knowing that crooked cops, who won't hesitate to kill, are behind the break-ins?
The answer to #1 is rather ingenious, and solving #2 is made more difficult since Britt is almost-incapacitated and barely functioning! (Thank God for Kato!)
Tune in below for the exciting answers...
Side Notes:
More day-for-night photography, which on this particular print is a little too light.
Since the episode involves break-ins at warehouses, a couple of 20th Century-Fox soundstage exteriors are used for the outside of the two different warehouses, but only one soundstage interior (redressed) is used for both interiors. (The Batman tv series used the same exteriors for their "warehouse" and "alley" shots.)
Here's the 21st filmed and aired episode..."Bad Bet on a 459-Silent".

Great Treasury of Christmas Comic Book Stories

There's a NEW coffee-table book out called Great Treasury of Christmas Comic Book Stories., featuring tales from the 1940s and 50s comic books about Christmas.
It's a cool, kid-friendly throwback to the days when publishers did oversized holiday annuals.
Of course, most tales feature Santa Claus, but other characters pop up including Atomic Mouse, Lil' TomBoy, Ebenezer Scrooge, and even the Easter Bunny! Plus there's a tastefully-done Nativity tale.
Art is by some of the best artists of the era including Walt Kelly (Pogo), John Stanley (Little Lulu/Nancy), and Richard Scarry.
Like I said, it's "kid friendly", but Baby Boomers will probably remember reading one or more of these tales when they were young and should enable their kids or grandkids to experience the same fun they had!
And, if you're gonna give a loved one this terrrific tome, why not combine it with one of our comics-based Christmas collectibles including clothing, mugs, shopping bags, magnets, and many other items with stylish retro graphics derived from comic book covers (some of which appear in the book) for a nifty gift set?
12 different 1960s Kris Kringle designs (for the 12 days of Christmas!) that will bring back nostalgic memories of your Baby Boomer childhood!
Along with St. Nick, our frosty friend is one of the most recognizable symbols of Winter and the Christmas Season! 5 different Frosty designs!
A Christmas Carol brought alive with images from the very FIRST edition EVER, the famous Arthur Rackham-illustrated edition, and the 1951 movie starring Alastair Sim! Bah, Humbug!
Nine different designs featuring famous comic characters celebrating Christmas!
Green Lama!
Lone Ranger!
Edison Bell: Boy Inventor!
Two different SuperSnipe designs!
Santa's Elves on Strike!
Western Rider Rusty!
3-D Comic Christmas!
and MORE!
