"I ordered Vol 1 twice and got the correct box but with the wrong DVD inside. I got Vol 2 both times."
If you order the vol.1 disc, you will actually get the vol.2

"This videodisc will not disappoint. The image clarity is quite good, but not as crystal clear as, for example, the 1950s classic black'n'white movie, "It Came from Beneath the Sea." The sound quality is excellent. In case you were wondering, the classic introduction featuring the William Tell Overture is there for you, along with the usually corny introductory monologue.
There are four stories, Rustler's Hideout, War Horse, Pete and Pedro, and The Renegades. Rustler's Hideout is a classic story, about a pioneer settler who was wrongly accused, and had to spend some time in jail. At a later point, the mayor's son gets kidnapped by a gang. The pioneer settler, with some prodding from Mr.Lone Ranger, decides that it would be in his best interest to help rescue the mayor's son. This tactic succeeds, and the pioneer settler becomes a hero in the eyes of the community.
Tonto has a major role, but not the starring role, in each of the four episodes. What is funny is that at one point, where a cowboy is slinking across the desert, the music comes from a slow movement from Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. The story is not just mindless action, as is found in the latest crop of Star Wars movies. In contrast, the Lone Ranger stories include episodes with misunderstandings, deception, trickery, etc.
At one point, the voice-over narration states that the goal of the U.S.government, at the time, was to protect the Indians from unscrupulous vandals. Of course, we all know that in its affairs with the Indians, the U.S. government was itself the unscrupulous vandal. The goal of the script-writer for the Lone Ranger narration was to re-write history. Bad script-writer. Bad, bad, bad.
You might have to order Volume One in order to obtain Volume Two. (I did not order Volume Two, and so I do not know if Volume Two contains inside the Volume One disk, or the Volume Two disk.)
