This film was among the first "made for television films"... but it's actually a compilation of the first three episodes from the television series all filmed 3 years before. They were... "Enter the Lone Ranger", "The Lone Ranger Fights On", and "The Lone Ranger's Triumph". See more »
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.
