The Lone Ranger

Cast: Clayton Moore — Lone Ranger, Jay Silverheels — Tonto, Silver, Scout
Genre: Western, Series
Year: Length: 17 HALF HOUR EPISODES
Color/B&W: B&W
Origin: USA
Synopsis: One of television’s most popular westerns, The Lone Ranger was created for radio in 1933 by George W. Trendle. The Lone Ranger was really a Texas Ranger named John Reid, who was the only survivor of an ambush by Butch Cavendish’s Hole in the Wall Gang. Nursed back to health by Tonto, his faithful Indian companion (coincidentally, the two had been childhood friends), he vowed to help bring justice to the West and donned a mask (originally, to fool the Cavendish gang). Armed with silver bullets, he shot only to wound, not to kill. Tonto would frequently appear in town as the “ignorant” Reskin while obtaining information against the enemy. The Lone Ranger would also disguise himself as different characters in order to walk among his enemies and obtain information. Tonto and the Lone Ranger were not the only famous, well-loved characters of this show. Viewers would tune in to see Silver (Ranger’s horse) and Scout (Tonto’s horse).
