Childhood memories
9 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can remember listening to the Lone Ranger on radio. When TV brought the masked man into our homes, The William Tell overture would bring chills down our spines. This movie which I picked up at a Dollar Store brought back a lot of memories and explained the Ranger's existence. How he was joined by Tonto and the finding of his horse Silver was never explained in the early television episodes. The story was well written and no one could ever replace Clayton Moore or Jay Silverheels. The quality of the DVD is actually much better than the rabbit eared TV picture on the 12 inch screen that I remember. I think getting copies of this DVD would make for great Christmas gifts for young and old ranger fans.
