VCI Entertainment present "Legend of the Lone Ranger" (1952) and "Hi-Yo Silver" (1940) (digitally remastered), featuring Clayton Moore (The Lone Ranger) is the only person to have a star on the "Hollywood Walk Of Fame", his name and the character he was renowned for playing from 1949-1957...Clayton's star reads "CLAYTON MOORE, THE LONE RANGER"...Clayton and Jay Silverheels deserve much of the success to this ongoing Ranger series....both actors lived the roles and presented themselves as good role models to children everywhere...they were a symbol of honor and integrity...the stories had the spirit of the old west with an certain amount of action here and there...with his faithful indian companion Tonto, we now know what a great actor Jay Silverheels was...Tonto was not your stereotypical ignorant savage that Hollywood was continually releasing...take note that Tonto tracks, takes care of the Ranger when he's wounded, spies out information and comes to the rescue many times when the Ranger is at a dead end...Tonto and the Ranger are friends and equals of a true partership that has gone on for decades.

First up is "Legend of the Lone Ranger" (1952/78 mins/B&W), created & produced by George W. Trendle, director George B. Seitz Jr., screenplay by George B. Seitz Jr. & Fran Striker...cast includes Clayton Moore (Lone Ranger), Jay Silverheels (Tonto), Glenn Strange (Butch Cavendish), Walter Sande (Sheriff Taylor), George Chesebro (Doc Drummond), Jack Clifford (Jerry)...the plot summary has 3 episodes of the original chronicles showing the origin of "The Lone Ranger", how Tonto found him and the other dead Rangers, when he saved the great horse Silver from a charging buffalo and nursed him back to health...will the Ranger and Tonto stop the Cavendish Gang...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good as the Serial July 24, 2001
By A Customer
This movie is alright as a feature of a Serial but the cutting is drastic and the plot becomes quite uneven. The serial works best as the Rangers are killed off one by one until the actual Lone Ranger emerges, but in this feature everything is so truncated that the excitement is lost. The Movie rates 3 stars only because of the wonderful work of Lee Powell, Hal Taliaferro and Chief Thunder Cloud. If you can't find the serial this is fine, but if you can get the serial you will see the difference.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite November 23, 2000
All true Lone Ranger fans will be disappointed. There is no "..Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, etc." The announcer isn't at the end either, so obviously this is not for the serious collector. Even the serial is an edited version. It does not mean this DVD is without merit: it is better than nothing. But if you can wait or already have these on tape, save the money. Oh, for the day when real pristene copies, unedited, will be available. Question: why do people who don't really care about the Lone Ranger, make these things anyway?

An excellent movie! Bought for a family member who had it on their wish list and she absolutely loved it! Now she watches it from time to time with her friends. It was a great addition to her collection.
