In Dan Reid, we find the connection that bridges two iconic series. As the nephew and trusted companion of The Lone Ranger, he was a young boy in the wild west, doing his part to ensure justice on the frontier. As the father of billionaire playboy Britt Reid (alias The Green Hornet), he discovers that his son has been secretly carrying on the family tradition.

This collector's set of Dan Reid adventures includes the origin story of The Lone Ranger, the classic 1942 story arc introducing Dan as the Ranger's nephew, some of Dan's more memorable western adventures, and the earliest installments in The Green Hornet story arc that memorializes the family ties. For fans of both The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet, these critical chapters of their shared history make for exciting listening.

This was absolutly thrilling and spellbounding adventures! Both the Lone Ranger and Green Hornet radio shows in these cd were great! And they explained the connection between the Lone Ranger and the Green Hornet; that connection is Dan Reid, nephew of the Lone Ranger and father of the Green Hornet!

I do have two problems with this collection though,

(1) The episode "The Lone Ranger: Frank, Luke Brady (North Star)"; the character of Dan Reid never showed up or was mentioned by name in this episode.

(2) The collection should have contained more episodes of the Green Hornet where Dan Reid is present or mentioned.

Other than that, it was great! And like a very good book, hard to put down! I wish more modern day tv/movie writers could write like the people whom wrote these episodes!
The Sinners from Mitar
enthusiasts on any subject always seem to have their favorite bits of relevant trivia. one of the biggies for us old-time radio aficionados is that The Green Hornet is in fact the grandnephew of The Lone Ranger.
both originated at Detroit's WXYZ radio station. The Ranger was first heard in 1933 and blossomed into such a phenomenon that by the end of the decade it became the very first nationally syndicated series of any broadcast medium. station manager George W. Trendle, having left a lucrative career as a lawyer to get into this new radio racket, and Fran Striker, chief among the "pulp" authors whom Trendle had hired to help the station develop it's own programming rather than having to depend on (and pay) the official networks, enjoyed the satisfaction having a played a hunch that justified their faith.
it inevitably occurred to Trendle that, since it had worked, why not try other variations? the result was The Green Hornet, who applied methods not unlike The Ranger's to (then) modern-day scam artists and corrupt politicians. the kinship hadn't gone public yet - some sources say Striker hadn't even come up with it yet - but there were already a number of telltale family resemblances. The Ranger was often mistaken for, and occasionally posed as, an outlaw; an early mishap got The Hornet mistakenly branded a criminal, and he decided to run with the facade. The Ranger shoots "to wound, not to kill"; The Hornet's gun is loaded with knockout gas. The Ranger used his silver bullets as a calling-card as often as he shot them; The Hornet always leaves his "seal." both have ethnic sidekicks and are generally addressed by the latter half of their title. ("good to see you again, Ranger" and/or "i'll get you for this, Hornet!") to say nothing of the story techniques, production values, and stock company of actors they shared.
some have speculated that The Green Hornet was basically WXYZ's answer to radio's other predominant hero, The Shadow. there's room for debate about that, since the Hornet's show debuted a year before The Shadow's series of his own adventures did. the character was going strong as a pulp-fiction hero, but the heads of radio, where he had premiered as simply a narrator of an Inner Sanctum-type series, were reluctant tamper with the already successful format. (some things never change.) but either way, that is probably the most apt summation for The Green Hornet: the middle-ground where The Lone Ranger meets The Shadow.
when they finally decided to make it official in the early '40s, they were quite subtle if not subliminal about it. the first clue was the appearance a curious 13-year-old who turned out to be the masked man's long lost nephew, Dan Reid. by a similar fan speculation, Dan is sometimes said to of been inspired by Little Beaver, the pubescent sidekick of one Red Ryder. this one is a bit more probable.
(update: though as good as forgotten today, Red Ryder was The Ranger's principle marketplace competitor, sort of the GoBots to The Ranger's Transformers. of course i don't need to say who won. the only thing saving Red Ryder from complete obscurity today is the fact that he sponsored that BB-gun which little Ralphie so desperately wanted for Christmas.)
for the most part the connection was left as what DVD collectors today call an easter egg, for the fan's to discover, or not, and make of what they would. the most overt clue was that Dan happened to share surnames with future Green Hornet/newspaper publisher Britt Reid.
this was also the threshold of The Ranger's overdue backstory. the bit about the sole survivor of an ambushed posse of Texas rangers had already been seen in a 1939 matinee serial, as well as read in Striker's pulp novelization The Lone Ranger Rides, but it was over the airwaves that it was first revealed that the captain of said posse was in fact The Ranger's elder brother, and Dan's father. and there's still a way to go from here. there's no mention (yet) of ruthless outlaw leader Butch Cavendish, who would go on to serve as our hero's arch-nemesis.
interestingly, Frank Striker effectively painted himself into a corner here. for years, insisting that the whole man-of-mystery gimmick was essential to the character's appeal, he had rigidly forbidden The Ranger to be granted any sort of "real" name or secret identity. now, however, he was more or less officially a Reid. to preserve what mystery was left, Striker would permit no first name to be given for the duration of the series.
the selection of Hornet episodes is greatly lesser, and even that's a three-part story arc. it's a bummer, but it's understandable. the overall theme here Dan Reid's relationship to the heroes, and it was quite late in the series' run (namely 1947) that Trendle and Striker finally decided to let the cat all the way out of the bag. clearly, this was the only time Dan was directly involved with The Hornet's series, at least the only time of which master copies still survive.
even then, they're not exactly forcing the issue. The Ranger is here referred to only as "that man" in a portrait on Britt's wall, and identified only by a brief snippet of "The William Tell Overture" played under the discussion. and as it happens, the elder Dan Reid is played by John Todd, who played Tonto for the entirety of The Lone Ranger's radio run. so when he proudly declares his son "more like that man than i ever thought you could be," he knows firsthand what he's talking about.
alas, The Ranger and The Hornet are easily the greatest fictional heroes to get the shaft by Hollywood in recent years. first there was that alleged comedy version of The Green Hornet, in which Seth Rogan plays Britt Reid as a disgruntled spoiled brat. then there was that cumbersome version of The Lone Ranger, which not only miscast Johnny Depp as Tonto, but present The Ranger as a useless incompetent, sort of a Curly to Tonto's Moe. to say nothing of the messy spectacle the whole thing was weighed down with.
there's potential for better movies here. personally, i've long thought it would make for a cool movie to tell the Ranger's and Hornet's stories concurrently, a' la The Godfather Part II. of course, those two stinkers were painful enough before i mentioned this much more promising approach, weren't they?
so until someone takes me up on the idea, stick to the original. thankfully, Radio Spirits offers plentiful examples of The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet as God intended them,
