The TV series stars show where the Lone Ranger came from. A great show where there is no doubt that the good guys will win.

Part of American Pop Culture History.

"3 episodes of the famous TV show, vintage 1949, edited together into a feature length film, tell the story of the origin of the Lone Ranger. This is the stuff of childhood memories for aging baby-boomers. Clayton Moore's portrayal of the Lone Ranger, and Jay Silverheels as Tonto, is a great memory of Saturday morning TV in the thrilling days of yesteryear. The acting, script, etc. all display B movie quality, at best, but, who cares? The Lone Ranger is a larger than life image that ranks at the top of American pop culture folklore with the greatest of fictional characters. Among staunch Lone Ranger fans, this is a familiar story viewed many times over the years. For the uninitiated, the mask, the silver mine, Silver, and other things are explained. A color episode is also included showing how the TV show changed from 1949 through 1956. The latter episode includes nice color photography, and shows how the heroic image evolved into the red, white, and blue figure on the white horse, complete with gleaming six-guns and silver bullets. As usual, lawbreakers are brought to justice, without excessive or bloody violence, by the end of the half-hour episode. This DVD edition looks great compared to the typical lower-grade VHS editions, all that was previously available. The full screen format is clean and clear, and the audio comes through nicely. As a nostalgic treat, this is wonderful. There is no reason to exclude the kids, if you can get them to put down the electronic games for a couple of hours. 10-year-olds of all ages will enjoy this viewing experience. Ownership is highly recommended. ;-)"

"This (Black & White )video is in fact a combination of the first 3 TV episodes from Sept 1949 (Enter the Lone Ranger, The Lone Ranger fights on and the Lone Ranger's Triumph.It is really for Lone Ranger fans of the fifties who can remember Moore and Silverheels in the TV role. One has to overlook some serious acting shortcomings because this was in the early days of T.V. Moore is careful to pronounce all his "ings" and every sentence seems carefully rehearsed. But then he "is" the Lone Ranger and our childhood hero. Tonto is as we remembered him - the loyal companion with an expressionless voice.(The story line is as we have been told it many times but today's audience would be critical about how so much happened within a few days and the dialogue seems very primitive). Some little things to notice - the Lone Ranger has only a one gun holster and Silver's saddle was not the silver saddle and martingale that was used later on.The action is pretty good even if the acting isn't. Good horsemanship by Moore and Silverheels. The introduction is'nt the same as the TV series but when you see Moore at the beginning galloping along on Silver and the big letters THE LONE RANGER appear, you feel the lump in your throat.My son bought this video for me as a Christmas gift and I have watched it 3 times. It runs for just over an hour. A must for all you Lone Ranger fans.Good value."
The origin of a great American hero

"This three-episode television classic was filmed in 1949 and introduced Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels as the Lone Ranger and Tonto. This seminal film details the masked man's origins as a Texas Ranger who was ambushed with five fellow rangers by outlaw Butch Cavendish, the Ranger's recovery with Tonto's help, why he conceals his identity with a mask, how he finds Silver, and their round-up and arrest of the Cavendish gang. Moore and Silverheels were perfect as the two leads in this series and portrayed the characters as no one else could have. They were supported by some of the old-school, venerable character actors of the day such as Glenn Strange, George Lewis, Tris Coffin, George Chesboro, and Walter Sande. The crisp black and white photography stands up well with time and the Lone Ranger "mood music" is a superb, nostalgic accompaniment to the action as the Ranger and Tonto fight for law and order in the early west. Each of the three episodes is wonderfully narrated by way of introduction, and the narration is also used to introduce key plot situations."
