The Green Hornet's Black Beauty car past and present...

One of the surviving Black Beauty movie cars from the 2011 remake of The Green Hornet could be seen yesterday at West Hollywood's Annual Gay Pride Parade as part of Sony Studios participation.

This car used in the big screen remake of the 1930's radio crime-fighting superhero, starring Seth Rogen as the titular 'Green Hornet', was apparently one of only three (out of twenty-nine) Imperial Chrysler sedans from 1964 to 1966 that survived the production of the stunt-packed movie in pristine condition.

If you like the new souped-up luxury supercar, then you'll also appreciate the original Black Beauty car from the 1960's television show photographed at the Petersen Automotive Museum on March 31, 2011, with its more retro armaments.

This Dean Jeffries customised car was driven by martial arts legend Bruce Lee as The Green Hornet's side-kick, 'Kato', and this Black Beauty also guest-starred in two episodes of the 1960's Batman TV show.
