A rescue plot to clear the name of a rustler
28 June 2014 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

In this old tale of the lone ranger, The notorious madden gang has been rustling cattle all over the county, and leaving the bodies of their victims in the wake. However, their leader is behind bars, for a very, very long time.

So in retaliation, the gang kidnaps the son of a rancher, named Jim Patrick, and will exchange his life back to his father in exchange for their leader.

Meanwhile, A former rustler, Fred Vance and his wife are hoping to settle in the county, but not all the ranchers are convinced Vance is reformed.

So, in everyone's darkest hour, the Lone ranger and tonto arrive to save the day. Their plan? Help Fred Vance clear his name with the county by rescuing Jim Patrick.

This one's public domain, there's not much to say, it's a regular hack plot...NO, no, no, no, no wait just one moment, there is something very, very special about this one episode of the lone ranger.

You know who Jim Patrick is? That young man tied to the tree? Dickie Jones. Pinocchio's voice actor for the 1940 animated film. Can you believe at one point, that guy was looking into a microphone and saying "I'm a real boy!" which so many children, young and old have heard, some many times over? Yeah, that's all that's special about this one. Oh by the way, as of June 2014, Mr. Jones is still alive.
