Video Fridays: THE GREEN HORNET in "Corpse of the Year 1 & 2"

Continuing our weekly feature "Video Fridays"...
It's Hornet vs Hornet as an evil impostor with a duplicate Black Beauty (but no masked chauffeur) is wreaking havoc on the Daily Sentinel, attacking delivery trucks (killing a driver) and tossing a grenade into the paper's newsroom!
Who's behind it?
That's what Britt Reid has to discover before more people are injured or killed by this lethal "Green Hornet"!
The second two-part episode has lots of twists and turns as suspects are uncovered, revealed as red herrings, and then killed by the Hornet doppelganger!
Side Notes:
This is the second, and final, appearance of Barbara Babcock as Britt's on again-off again girlfriend, Elaine Carey, who previously appeared in "Frog is a Deadly Weapon".
There were two fully-functional Black Beauties built for the tv show. Both were used in the chase sequences. (Here's a link to a kool website detailing the history of the tv show autos.)
The clip provider has dropped the end credits of part one and the opening credits of part two, as well as the title cards for the second part to make the clips "flow" better as a story
BTW, I've noted the broken links in earlier blog entries due to removal of videos by YouTube.
I'll be editing in alternate links over the next week or so...
Here's the 18th and 19th episodes of The Green Hornet...
