Grab your mask and six-guns, kids, 'cuz the Lone Ranger's back and better than ever! Once again, the retro-wizards at Rhino have expertly packaged this welcome trip down TV memory lane, serving up six complete 22-minute episodes of the popular shoot-'em-up series, starring Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as his faithful sidekick, Tonto. The first two black-and-white episodes (from 1949) are included as bonus features, reminding us of the masked man's origins, and four consecutive color episodes from 1956 show the series at its peak of popularity. The colors have faded a bit (otherwise these shows look great), but the action's still as brisk as ever; this is kid-stuff produced with intelligence and skill, with well-cast villains (including Glenn Strange and General Hospital veteran John Beradino) and punchy stories that will still delight any baby boomers who look back fondly at TV's golden age. --Jeff Shannon

Notice how everything seems rushed and un-natural.
John Field
Don't know about these discs from Rhino, however, I have the earlier 4 disc-19 episode DVDs issued in 2003, all 19 in color, and Rhino did a great job with that set.

We'll Rhino In their lack of research or un-caring have released edited and/or time compressed versions of this classic series! Traditionally t.v. shows produced prior to the early 80's were made with more show and less commercials in mind. The Lone Ranger went to color It's last two seasons. These shows run 25 unhurried minutes when seen without commericials. Rhino was given edited and worse yet time compressed episodes as their dvd masters. Notice how everything seems rushed and un-natural. Movements are compromised by the digital manipulation of the originl 24 frames per second to the now 30 to 40 frames a second. Nick at Nite and T.V. Land both show edited/time compressed prints. When we buy ANY films or t.v. shows on dvd, we expect them to look fantastic and be UN-CUT and UN-TAMPERED with. These shows are neither. Worse yet, the great black and white origin of the Lone Ranger was originally a THREE PART adventure. Here Rhino provides us with two edited parts leaving the climactic episode off! I understand that Rhino has announced they are releasing 19 Lone Ranger episodes in a box set. Will these be un-cut? Will these be un-fair examples of our t.v. heritage that generations to come will be cheated by? Write your letters kiddies. Let Rhino and the rest know that you want to see these shows as your parents and grandparents saw them.

Why in the world would you want to buy this collection of edited/time compressed episodes. They totally violate my memories of the character. Rhino has normally had a reputation for issuing some of the finest TV programs. This is really below their standards. Don't waste your time or money on this one. I hope that ultimately someone wil issue all the Lone Ranger episodes in their original condition.

Don't know about these discs from Rhino, however, I have the earlier 4 disc-19 episode DVDs issued in 2003, all 19 in color, and Rhino did a great job with that set. Set also includes interviews with Clayton Moore's daughter, Dawn Moore, and Moore's longtime friend, Rand Brooks. If you enjoy the "masked man", cannot afford to be without this one, pardner. Nothing like the Lone Ranger in color!

Based upon what I read here, I won't be buying these. Thanks guys. Time compression-can't believe it. Oh, well.

Semper Fi.

I was happy to see this item available at such a reasonable cost however, when viewing the episodes, some of them had problems - skipping sections of the video or just stopping for 10 - 20 seconds and them continuing.

This dvd comes from Rhino Home Video. These stories are from the final season of this series. It was produced and filmed in color in 1956. That same year Warner Bros produced a movie called "The Lone Ranger" in great color. The TV costume that Clayton Moore wore in the TV series was the same as he used in the 1956 movie. Actually the production values were the best in the whole series. I recommend this one because it is in color and much better production values

Remembering as a child as I watched the many westerns of those times, how I loved the good guys beating the bad guys. Now, as time has gone by, I've learned the fantasies of the simple plots of those old stories. But as all things in life that I've also learned, fantasies, make believe stories (Star Wars! ?), their good for soul & mind. Just remember the realities of life, lurks out that front door!
