          Six Texas Rangers were ambushed by the Butch Cavendish Gang, and only one survived – barely. He was nursed back to health by a stoic Indian named Tonto, and by the time the 'lone ranger' was able to ride, he had already been declared dead. So he and Tonto constructed a bandit-like costume with a black mask so that the Lone Ranger could mingle with the bad-guys and seek revenge for the deaths of his fellow Rangers.
          Other parts of the radio series and TV series and feature film "Legend of The Lone Ranger" include the many disguises, the silver bullets (from their own silver mine, which also financed their wanderings), the great white horse Silver and Tonto's paint horse Scout, and nephew Dan Reid.

          The radio series first aired 30 January 1933 on WXYZ radio in Detroit, Michigan. Success led to national broadcasts on the Mutual Broadcasting System radio network, then on N.B.C.'s Blue Network, which became the A.B.C. radio network. The show's final new episode aired on A.B.C. on 3 September 1954, and was the last of 2,956 radio episodes.
          The series was created and written by Fran Striker, for producer and WXYZ station-owner George W. Trendle. Actors who portrayed The Lone Ranger on radio included John L. Barrett, George Seaton (under the name George Stenius), Earle Graser, and Brace Beemer; the voice of Tonto was acted by John Todd.

          Republic Pictures produced two feature film serials: "The Lone Ranger" [1938] and "The Lone Ranger Rides Again" [1939]. The second serial starred Robert Livingston; Tonto was played in both by Victor Daniels (under the name Chief Thundercloud). The horse Silver was portrayed in the first serial by Silver King, the talented steed owned & trained by silent film cowboy star Fred Thomson [1890-1928]; the second serial used a horse called Silver Chief.
          Rights-owner Trendle was not pleased with either serial; he gathered up all the film elements and prints and took no steps to preserve them; little exists today beyond a few reels discovered in foreign film vaults, mostly dubbed or subtitled. The 1938 serial was re-edited as a feature film and released in 1940 as "Hi-Yo Silver"; prints exist and DVDs are available.

          The Lone Ranger television series aired on A.B.C.'s television network from 1949 to 1957; Trendle hired Jack Chertok to produce; Jay Silverheels portrayed Tonto on the entire series. Clayton Moore starred from 1949 to 1952, when he was dropped in a dispute over salary & perks. John Hart starred from 1952 to 1953, that season was rerun in 1953-54. Tremble sold the rights to Jack Wrather (of later "Lassie the Dog" fame), who immediately hired Clayton Moore back for the 1954-55 season; that season was also rerun in sequence for the 1955-56 season. Although A.B.C. broadcast only in black-and-white, Wrather filmed the final 1956-57 season in costly color; the network series ended in September 1957, and continued in daytime reruns for many years.
          Clayton Moore & Jay Silverheels worked together in two color feature films co-produced by Wrather – "The Lone Ranger" [1956] and The Lone Ranger and The Lost City of Gold" [1958] – that were well-received; Lone Ranger movies before and since were less successful.
          The attempt to make the 1981 "The Legend of The Lone Ranger" feature film was fraught with problems. Moore was then making his living traveling the country to county fairs and such, in costume as the Lone Ranger character. To shore up his legal rights, Wrather got a court order preventing Moore from appearing in public in costume; fans were incensed. {Moore's solution was to wear gigantic black sunglasses for his appearances.} The movie itself was an artistic catastrophe; Klinton Spilsbury, the unknown actor hired to star, was handsome but could not act; actor James Keach was brought in to overdub all of Spilsbury's dialogue; the movie bombed.

          The Lone Ranger received the full mass-merchandising treatment from the beginning – box-top driven premiums on the radio show, toys thru the years, s series of novels published from 1936 to 1956, two daily comic strips (1938-71 and 1981-84), and even a recent video game. Lone Ranger comic books began in 1948 and are still being published; for a while, both Tonto and Silver had their own comic book issues. The recent Dynamite Entertainment comics are extremely successful (though some readers are upset about the graphic violence).
          News reports in 2008 and since have described the on-going development of what purports to be a big-budget feature film version of The Lone Ranger: the studio is Disney, the script is by two writers of "Pirates of The Caribbean", the producer is Jerry Bruckheimer; Johnny Depp was attached (as Tonto!); release was set for 2014, but Disney balked at the budget and put the project in turnaround in August 2011 (see recent details below).

Each of the thirty episodes was split into three distinct sections, some featuring Tonto only; the last original episode ran in March 1968, and the series continued into 1969 as reruns. The plots were bizarre imitations of the odd "Wild Wild West" TV series, with science fiction elements and 'steampunk technology' and an arch-villain who was a dwarf • Produced by Wrather Productions & Format Films; featuring voices of Michael Rye & Shepard Menken; video/DVD not available; series credits from IMDb

A 2-hour TV movie, intended as a pilot for a series.

"Lone Ranger" feature film [Disney release July 2013?]  
Yes, indeed, producer Jerry Bruckheimer's {terrible} official website has information on a forthcoming Lone Ranger movie, with a script by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio; rumors swarmed across the net in September 2008 that actor George Clooney was 'eager' to join already-signed actor Johnny Depp (as Tonto!} in the proposed big-budget Disney Pictures production; hunky actor Armie Hammer signed in May, and the release date & director Gore Verbinski were confirmed in June 2011. Then in August, Disney pulled the plug as the budget had escalated to $250M; the project was placed in 'turnaround' status, the budget was trimmed, then they got a new greenlight in February 2012; latest plans show July 2013 release.
