My rating: 4 of 5 stars
With the on again, off again, on again status of the upcoming Disney incarnation of The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp, it’s nice to go back to the simpler, yet thoroughly enjoyable TV version.
This is a compilation of 3 episodes of the long-running TV series starring Clayton Moore. It chronicles the origin of The Lone Ranger, and how he met Tonto and Silver, while avenging the death of his brother. A fairly straightforward good guys vs. bad guys story, it nonetheless evokes a strong emotional appeal to the imagination, showing why The Lone Ranger continues to be popular.
