The Lone Ranger - The Original Series, Vol. 1 (1949)
Grab your mask and six-guns, kids, 'cuz the Lone Ranger's back and better than ever!
The Lone Ranger
- Once again, the retro-wizards at Rhino have expertly packaged this welcome trip down TV memory lane, serving up six complete 22-minute episodes of the popular shoot-'em-up series, starring Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as his faithful sidekick,
The first two black-and-white episodes (from 1949) are included as bonus features, reminding us of the masked man's origins, and four consecutive color episodes from 1956 show the series at its peak of popularity.
The colors have faded a bit (otherwise these shows look great), but the action's still as brisk as ever; this is kid-stuff produced with intelligence and skill, with well-cast villains (including Glenn Strange and General Hospital veteran John
Beradino) and punchy stories that will still delight any baby boomers who look back fondly at TV's golden age.
