Clayton Moore as Zorro
29 January 2008 | by (Hamilton OHIO) – See all my reviews

I would like to comment on Ed Jones assumption that Clayton Moore went from being the Lone Ranger to Zorro. He had been a serial star at Republic for some time, prior to getting into television. Actually, it was the other way around. In his book, "I was the Masked Man," Moore tells how his agent used his performance in Ghost of Zorro, released in 1949 before the Lone Ranger TV series but in the same year, to get him the job. I believe it was the way his eyes looked behind the mask. Moore always had that intense look. However, in 1952, Moore did take a hiatus from the TV series (for reasons which were never quite made clear) and returned to Republic to make Zombies of the Stratesphere, one of the Commando Cody serials. He also made Son of Geronimo at Columbia.
