Re: hi ho Silver, The Lone Ranger rides on....

I wish they could just make a good Lone Ranger movie. Just play it straight with no ridiculous supernatural elements or needless CGI. A classic western-style movie. It is one of the few things I would pay to see in the theaters.

The plot for "The Legend of the Lone Ranger" was actually pretty good, but the production values were so darn cheap, it was an embarrassment. Also the lead actors were hideous.

And don't forget that horrible rhyming narration, which just kept going on and on . . . .

Re: hi ho Silver, The Lone Ranger rides on....

And Jack Wrather and Bonita Granville trying to get Clayton Moore out of the mask when they got the rights to the character, silly producers. One of the more ridiculous moves by film makers that I can think of.

She was Wrather's wife, according to wiki. I have no idea how much mutual involvement might have been in the decision. I guess 20/20 hindsight makes the move seem an obvious public relations disaster. The old series was long gone, and they may not have thought that the public would be still so attached to the image of Clayton Moore in the part. They simply may not have anticipated the amount of distaste the move could have.

Ho hum, Silver!

Emphasis on the hum. If we don't get the William Tell Overture, is it the Lone Ranger?

Adam Beach for Tonto, Sean Maher for the Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp for the evil cattle baron who want to hog all the roles, er, range.

True story: I actually saw The Legend of the Lone Ranger and Raiders of the Lost Ark for the first time on same night. Guess which one impressed me more.

Probably, but just to do something like that to Clayton Moore is just mean spirited as well as stupid.

Cool. Maybe we'll be getting some shots of the actors in character before too long.
