732. Van Williams "Britt Reid" Hornet "gas" gun from The Green Hornet. (ABC-TV, 1966-1967) Vintage original signature Hornet gun. This "gas" gun is constructed of carved wood, textured grip and Green Hornet design motif, with barrel and upper casing of metal. The base of the grip features a discreet spring-loaded door that the compressed air line would run through and depressible metal trigger at the rear of the casing. For the gas scenes, the compressed air line would be concealed in the actor's sleeve. The gun is visible in early filmed garage segments when the Hornet checks his weapons and inserts a "gas" cartridge in the gun before he and "Kato" (Bruce Lee) roll out in "Black Beauty". The guns went through three primary paint schemes until one was found that would photograph best on screen. Measuring 9.5 x 5 in. and studio painted silver. Exhibiting some paint chips around the grip. Provenance: Profiles in History Icons of Hollywood Auction December 2011. Lot 538. $4,000 - $6,000
