    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The Hornet is sitting on the right and Jimmy Kee on the left in the back seat, yet when the Hornet gets out of the Black Beauty he gets out of the left door.

      • When The Green Hornet meets up with Duke Slate, Duke pulls out a rifle from the back seat of his car and attempts to shoot The Green Hornet. The Hornet aims his "Sting" weapon and destroys the rifle. As the rifle crumbles and goes up in smoke, the control cable that made the rifle go up in smoke, is very visible coming out of the base of the rifle, and almost becomes entangle around Duke's arm as it falls from the car.
