Clayton Moore and Jay Siverheels
30 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the interesting things about the picture is that Jay Silverheels plays a WW2 vet (Lakohna) living on the reservation and Clayton Moore is one of the thugs who is sent by the local thief/merchant to rob the Navahos. He steals and kills some sheep, and then mugs a chief for a squash blossom necklace. He and Autry do most of the fighting in the film.

The kicker is, the movie, and the premier episode of The Lone Ranger, both arrived on Sept 15, 1949.

An interesting moment comes when Autry sees Lakohna's medal and asks, "Guadacanal?" to which Silverheels replies, "Iwo Jima."
