TRUTH !!
In the original radio incarnation, Britt Reid is the son of Dan Reid, Jr.,
the nephew of John Reid, the Lone Ranger, making the Green Hornet the
grand-nephew of the Ranger. The relationship is alluded to at least once in
the radio shows, when Dan Reid visits his son to question him on why Britt
has never captured the Hornet. On learning the truth behind his son's dual
identity, Dan Reid recalls his days riding in Texas with his uncle, as the
William Tell Overture plays briefly and softly in the background .
