An underrated Western classic
16 November 2004 | by (Chester, VA) – See all my reviews

I found this film at our local library while searching for the old TV series. I never knew Clayton Moore had done a feature length movie as the Lone Ranger, so this was a pleasant surprise on many counts. It's a strong performance for a "B" movie, better in fact than many contemporary westerns with bigger stars. It has an excellent supporting cast (though Lyle Bettger as Reece Kilgore is just as weak here as he is as Ike Clanton in Gunfight at the O.K. Corral). Strong moral themes, lots of action and an interesting, even rather complex, plot for a piece like this. Michael Ansara is great as Angry Horse, the volatile Indian who is at odds with the Lone Ranger. A very re-watchable family favorite!
