The Lone Ranger in colour
David Blake | Basingstoke, Hampshire, United Kingdom | 12/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a suberb boxset, containing 19 of the later (1956/57), colour, episodes from this classic series. If you've a hankering to invest in some Lone Ranger shows for your collection - this is one for you. Great care has been taken in the packaging, in the DVD menu structure and, most importantly, in the remastering. I couldn't believe how clear the picture was. The Lone Ranger and Tonto appear in razor-sharp clarity. And the location shots at Corriganville are superb. Just look at the snow-capped mountains on the horizon; and you'll wish ALL the Lone Ranger episodes had been filmed in colour. The episodes included in this package are:
1. The wooden rifle
2. Sheriff of Smoke Tree
3. Counterfeit mask
4. No handicap
5. The Cross of Santo Domingo
6. White Hawk's decision
7. The return of Don Pedro O'Sullivan
8. Quicksand
9. Quarter horse war
10. The letter bride
11. Hot spell in Panamint
12. The twisted track
13. Decision for Chris McKeever
14. Trouble at Tylerville
15. Christmas story
16. Ghost Canyon
17. Outlaw masquerade
18. The avenger
19. The courage of Tonto"

"Rhino Home Video was given the nod for another installment of the leading Western hero known as the Masked Man "The Lone Ranger", featuring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels as Tonto...our Masked hero on his white horse (Silver) and his faithful Indian companion Tonto rode (Scout)into our lives and we've never been the same since...our children and grandchildren will enjoy this clean wholesome fun...when the good guys always won, good guys hat never fell off in a fist-fight and the moral to the story was fair-play.

Who ever thought back in 1931 a small Detroit radio station two men John Kunsky and George W. Trendle would be the start of our hero...later Trendle asked writer Fran Striker to develop a character that was sort of a Robin Hood and Zorro, thus The Lone Ranger was born and the very first broadcast January 31, 1933, America came to love and embrace this legendary lawman...then in 1949 Moore and Silverheels worked together in a film called "The Cowboy and the Indians", this was just the beginning of a long working friendship between to wonderful actors and human beings.

Every week in front of the tube the announcer would open with..."A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty Hi-Yo Silver! The Lone Ranger"...then the Masked Man would ride in and we would hear..."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"...we would sit glued to the TV and ride those dusty trails with our hero with plenty of action coming our tighten up those cinches and get ready to ride.

All 19 episodes were beautifully remastered in color and restored...the Ranger films were always first class and the early years had some of the best of the best...they need to be out there for all of us who loved and looked up to Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels...both actors gave their characters life, their word was bond...never quit on a friend in need, always giving the other fellow an even break...this was the way of the early West...the code they lived by, they'll never be another Lone Ranger and Tonto!

This is truly fun stuff and even today holds up as a great western adventure...original airdate was from September 1956 thru January 1957...he was our hero & now once again because of film preservation this restored digital DVD Box Set we can escape to the old west...Great package and family entertainment...just the way it should be!

A trip back to Yesteryear!

"I've given this five stars because of the material itself. It is subjective and sentimental and even Zen Master's cry! Obviously this is for Post WW11 kids! The kids of today won't get it because their jaded at 8! We weren't! So there! And too bad too!
Some months ago I had purchased a 2 DVD pack with 12 episodes of the first season of the Lone Ranger. {Platinum Disc Corp}
Well, almost. They're a few out of sequence, but I won't sweat the small stuff! I was very surprised at the print quality of most of the 12, and it has the first three episodes that intoduce the Ranger & Tonto. I got such a kick out of seeing these again, and so many memories flooded back in from those hours spent sitting in front of our 17" black&white Admiral t.v. on Saturday mornings of 1950's in Southern California, whew, that I had to have MORE! Thus this purcahse! The colors great like the other fellow says, and clean good prints! What makes this different besides the color {and the last season of the show as well} of these episodes is the different locations that are used in just about every episode. Oh, yeah...Corriganville, Ivereson Ranch and the Susana Hills or 'Mts' if ya like are present in many, but you'll also go to Kanab, Utah. Columbia State Park in Central Ca. near Fresno. And outside of the Utah shots, my favorite; the Lone Pine Ca. location with the snow capped Sierras and the Alabama Hills as a back drop! WOW! I was a bit reluctant to plop down the $$ but I found a good deal at Fry's or Best Buy! Sorry Amazon old pal! But when I got home and started playing the dvd's I was really happy I made this purchase! ITS FUN! How many things do we buy any more that are FUN? Continuing onward; you'll have 19 episodes all in order of the airing dates of the last season. From Sept. 13th. 1956 thru Jan 17th. 1957. That leaves 20 episodes still remaining to be stamped into DVD's! {I hope}for the remainder of the 57' season, which ended 6-6-57. Yes, you read that right!! 39 episodes in a t.v. season! As was the common practice of t.v shows back in the day! Now, we are lucky to see our favorite program before a November air date, and end in March? But I ramble. If ya realy want to go a little further with a Lone Ranger Rush, read Clayton Moore's book; "I Was That Masked Man" other wise "return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear. Out of the past come the thundering hoofbeats of the great horse Silver. The Lone Ranger rides again!""
Clearing up some confusion.

"I won't rehash the details that have been mentioned in some of the other excellent reviews, but to prevent confusion from P.Hayman's peculiar review, a few points (or at least one major one)... This box set contains episodes from the final season.

As such, including the first episode would probably seem out of place. It is available in several other DVD releases, including the AMC first 14 episodes 2-disc set and in a dvd that combines the first 3 episodes into a movie of the origin of the Lone Ranger, each of which sell on Amazon for $9.99.

The final few seasons were intentionally (so far as I could surmise) filmed in color. Again, if this is a selling point, purchase a set containing earlier episodes and you will be able to see the Lone Ranger in his B&W glory.

This period in the series contains some classic episodes, and the production quality of these later episodes is quite good compared to earlier years. I think most fans of the masked man would not be disappointed with this set."
