He won't be talking to anybody.
What about that masked man and injun? They can cause us plenty of trouble.
Oh, we got what we were after. No matter who that masked man is, he'd never be able to figure out what that was. Come on.

Instead of crediting Fran Striker and George W. Trendle as the creators/originators of The Lone Ranger characters, the credit below the screenplay credit simply reads "Based upon the Lone Ranger legend". See more »
This second full-length Lone Ranger feature doesn't measure up to the 1956 classic but is a fine film with enough rough and tumble action and moves along at a good clip. The Ranger looks into a series of mysterious murders which have a sinister pattern to them with peaceful Indians being the victims of a gang of hooded killers. There are more killings and violence usually associated with Lone Ranger adventures and the film has an undercurrent of racial insensitivity, the comments of which are sprinkled throughout the screenplay. The Ranger uses disguises as only he can to piece together clues and expose the outlaw band and bring them to justice. Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels star in a colorful presentation that shows the desert and cactus country of old Tucson to good advantage. The music score is good but the familiar William Tell Overture theme is nudged aside by vocals that are interesting but lack the flourish and beauty of the Ranger's traditional theme.
