Did You Know?


When the Lone Ranger calls out "Hi Yo Silver, Away!" it is the voice of Earle W. Graser, the radio's Lone Ranger, that is heard and not the voice of either Lee Powell or Billy Bletcher. His recording of this signature cry was used even after his death and Brace Beemer had become the Lone Ranger. See more »

Takes too many liberties with the Lone Ranger legend
21 May 2000 | by (Orange County, California) – See all my reviews

This condensed movie serial has its moments (it is, after all, The Lone Ranger), but I found the characterization to be almost nonexistent and the plotline too meandering. What was even worse, they completely ignored the standard history of The Lone Ranger and instead set up a contrived mystery of trying to guess who the real Lone Ranger was out of five suspects (and none of those five was John Reid, the Ranger of radio and TV). A framing story was used to skip past the deleted serial scenes, so it wasn't completely confusing, but some of those scenes sounded pretty exciting and I hope I can see the complete serial someday.
