Bad Bet on a 459--Silent

Trivia, Quotes, Notes and Allusions

Notes (1)

  • The original air date of this episode is disputed. Every source which claims that no new episode aired on December 30, 1966 and "The Hornet and the Firefly" was not seen until March 24, 1967, also lists this and the previous episode, "Ace in the Hole" in reverse order from that which is given here.

Trivia (6)

  • The phone number of District Attorney Scanlon's office is 555-6789.

  • Kato is visibly upset that his friend Britt cannot receive the proper medical attention after being shot.

  • Frank tells Britt what time it is, THEN looks at his watch to see the time.

  • When the camera angle changes, there's no glove on Britt's hand while the Green Hornet is confronting the dishonest cop.

  • Britt's left arm is immobilized by the shooting, but the "stock footage" of the Green Hornet and Kato getting into the Black Beauty shows Britt using his left arm to close the car door.

  • After Scanlon gets to Britt's apartment, Britt says "I never realized how much trouble one little bullet could cause so much trouble." On the word "bullet" the scene cuts from a wide-angle "master" shot to a close-up of actor Van Williams, who read the line differently in each take.
