Video Fridays: THE GREEN HORNET in "Crime Wave"

Continuing our weekly feature "Video Friday"...
It's a 1960s version of cybercrime as The Green Hornet faces a computer that can predict his crimes in "Crime Wave",  the fourth broadcast episode! (A neat trick since The Hornet is just pretending to be a criminal!)
There's double-crossing, a couple of elaborately-planned robberies, and a kool all-out fight scene as The Hornet and Kato take on several foes at once!
We also get to see The Black Beauty's built-in gas-guns in operation for the first time!
Side notes:
Despite being computer whizzes, the criminals in this episode can't construct a pistol-sized gas gun like The Hornet, and have to lug a huge canister of knockout gas around with them!
There's a costume party scene where a number of costumes contain elements (helmets, tunics, sidearms) from various Irwin Allen shows (Lost in Space, Time Tunnel, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea)
Next week: The Green Hornet meets The Shadow! (No lie!)
