A rollicking good time!
18 February 2006 | by paladinindSee all my reviews

Loved this old serial! Lots of action and adventure. Robert Livingston playing Andrews (the Lone Ranger in disguise) and Duncan Renaldo playing Juan show the chemistry they had together as two of the Three Mesquiteers. The Lone Ranger (Livingston) is framed for murder, and Juan Vasquez (Renaldo) goes out for revenge. The Lone Ranger joins a group of settlers heading for New Mexico, convinces Juan of his innocence, and gains a third partner in his fight against a cattle baron's crooked nephew. One cliff-hanger after the other, an intelligent script, and lots of old-time cowboy action that kept me glued to my set!
