Fun, dumb, and an interesting look into the 1950s low budget cowboy movies.
2 January 2017 | by hpcychpcycSee all my reviews

I really enjoy watching old movies/TV shows like this. They're cheesy and it's very easy for us to poke fun at the melodrama and obvious twists, but they're a throwback to when people weren't so critical of entertainment and just enjoyed seeing moving pictures, cowboys, Indians and a very clear good vs bad story. There was no anti-hero. No muddied waters. Good was good. Bad was ham-fistedly bad. And the day was always saved. The acting isn't great, but fits well with the melodramatic feel of the movie. I haven't seen a lot of the 1950's Lone Ranger TV show, but I was surprised at how little the Lone Ranger was used. He is a very one-dimensional character and all the development he ever gets is the opening credits where we hear about how he became the Lone Ranger and that He rides for justice. Maybe it's a good thing that he didn't have a lot of screen time, because you can't do a lot with that character. Instead, Tonto and other more dimensional side characters get more screen time. The movie deserves props for trying to handle a story line that deals a bit with racial relations between the Native Americans and the white man. It's a bit clumsy and wouldn't pass muster today, but it's cool to see such a story in 1958.
