Van Williams was the supposed star of the 1960s' TV series The Green Hornet, but we're pretty sure he wasn't the reason anyone bothered tuning in. This was a series in which the sidekick—Kato, as played by martial arts master Bruce Lee—was the true star.

Check out the 24-year-old Lee's audition tape below, which includes kung fu demonstrations that unnerve the poor victim sent on camera to let him show off his moves. Lee does it all in a suit and tie, not breaking a sweat, and somehow managing to remain dashing and debonair the whole time!
