“A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty “Hi-yo, Silver!”, The Lone Ranger! With his faithful Indian companion Tonto, the daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains led the fight for law and order in the Early West. Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear – The Lone Ranger rides again!!!”
That was the opening of the classic “Lone Ranger” television series from 1952 that I used to watch as a small boy when it was syndicated on (I guess) Channel 11 or Channel 5. It was classic good versus bad in a Western Theme and it starred Clayton Moore as The Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. Today is the opening day for the new take on the film by Disney.
