THE LONE RANGER (PG-13)
The Lone Ranger‘s origin story begins with a group of Texas Rangers chasing down a gang of outlaws led by Butch Cavendish.
The gang ambushes the Rangers, seemingly killing them all. One survivor is found, however, by an American Indian named Tonto, who nurses him back to health. The Ranger, donning a mask and riding a white stallion named Silver, teams up with Tonto to bring the unscrupulous gang and others of that ilk to justice.
The Lone Ranger owned by Classic Media, began life as a 1930s radio show. Its popularity led to movie serials, TV shows, comic strips and comic books, toys, novels and more.
Actor Clayton Moore became the Lone Ranger in 1949, starring in films and a long lived TV series in the 1950s – He continued to wear the mask in many personal appearances until his passing in 1999.
