I tried to put a comment on Soundcloud, and failed.So I'm going to try here.The Green Hornet:Norman Foster, the director of this episode, was 63 when he made this show.He'd been a director at 20th-Fox going as far back as the 1930s.His credits included most of the Mr.Moto movies with Peter Lorre, as well as a few Charlie Chans with Sidney Toler.When TV came along, Norman Foster did a lot of stuff for Disney, including many of the Zorro series from the '50s, with Guy Williams.No sitcoms that I could find offhand, although he did do a lot of Loretta Young Shows (He was married to Loretta's sister).That Moto/Chan I mentioned above may be why the Dozier group thought of him for the Asian-themed Hornet episode - or it could be a coincidence ...By the way:At about the same time that this show was made, Mako appeared in the Steve McQueen movie The Sand Pebbles, and was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance.And that's where I learned that his name was pronounced MAH-ko (short 'a').Just so you know ...Ellery Queen:I wonder if you've heard that Tom Reese, who played Sergeant Velie, just passed away this week, aged 89.So if you want to do a tribute, now would be the time ...Now I have to go back and listen to all the other ones.Wish me luck!
Good luck, Mike! (And don't forget the minisodes and maxisodes.) Thank you so much for the comment. It is greatly appreciated. (I'm sorry Soundcloud gave you grief.) I did not know about Tom Reese but we are recording our next EQ chat this evening. We will mention him. Have an excellent week!
