The Lone Ranger as played by Clayton Moore was an incomparably mythical, iconic figure to the baby boomer generation. The cadre of them assembled at the Washington Monument for 1958's kickoff of the "Peace Patrol" must have been delirious with excitement when The Lone Ranger in full regalia (dig the skin-tight suit!) came galloping down the aisle on Silver, later punctuating his speech with some spiffy gun tricks.
|The Lone Ranger character originated in radio and came to film serialdom in 1938. His and Tonto's latest incarnation is coming next month via Johnny Depp and Disney, so stay tuned! (Looks like quite the reboot.)|
