As good as the first film

"Reviewers in film guides often regard this as a lesser film than the first theatrical film of The Lone Ranger, but I'm glad to see most fans know better. True, Clayton Moore is showing his years by now, and the scenic desert shots are more dramatic in the first film, but this one is every bit as good. Lots of action, a nice mix of earnestness and campiness, and some good reminders about racial tolerance. Moore's extended scenes without a mask, disguised only with a blond wig and Southern gentleman's goatee, are especially amusing. He is scamming the film's villainness, pretending to be a bounty hunter, while flirting outrageously with her, and it's a hoot. We never see the LR as a suave devil, and this part can't help but remind us that Moore was linked romantically with the tragic sex bombshell Lupe Velez in his younger days. The final shootout, in a deserted Indian village, is quite stark and imaginative. Jay Silverheels also gets a chance to do some acting. All-in-all, great fun."

"I was transported back to the days of my youth with this great quality DVD. I am glad I was able to get this film because Copies are fast disappearing and the manufacturer has discontinued it.What a travesty.The Lone Ranger with Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels is classic movie fare and should be available forever.The Lone Ranger and the Lost City of Gold is a real treat and a pleasant follow-up to the first theatrical Lone Ranger feature release. I recommend this to all Lone Ranger fans."
