“The Lone Ranger” — 1949 to 1957. I was born in ‘51 — I remember Captain Kangaroo, I Love Lucy, and The Lone Ranger from about age 4 on. Those were the days. Of course, being 4 years old with not a care in the world is a great time no matter what. Your 60 years of constant School, College, and Work haven’t yet started.
Yep. Me too. However, I am saddened by how the legacy of the old LR was belittled, ridiculed and demeaned in the recent movie.
While very funny, he (LR) was nothing but a comic foil to Depp’s fake Indian performance - along with the horse.
In effect, anything remaining of the legacy was trampled by the magical prescience and abilities of Trigger, or the mystical shaman Tonto. Still, a good movie to watch.
I see the mask is not for sale. That would be a cool thing to have.
Considering the actors, who I really can’t stand, the movie was itself entertaining. And we watched it on netflix or something so they didn’t get the full fare from us. ;>}
Except it was "Silver". "Trigger" was Roy Rogers' horse, which was exceptional its own right ...
yeah....you’re right....it sucks to be old. The only redeeming thing about old age is that eventually your DVD colletion becomes “new” again! :o)
At that time we did not know of her family ties to the communist party.
several episodes of the “Lone Ranger” come on every day tho I don’t recall which channel.
It is quite a bit better than most of the half hour westerns of the day, and they were all watchable.
But the good news is that the movie was belittled, ridiculed and demeaned.
Clayton Moore spent many years in the Twin Cities. He had a real estate company - Ranger Reality
Loved to dress up as the Ranger to entertain the neighborhood kids.
Roy Rogers, King of the Cowboys is also on. I don’t get any Gene Autry tho.
Long after he left the TV series, Moore got a cease and desist order to quit wearing the mask due to copyright or trade mark infringement.
Thereafter, he wore dark sunglasses.
Lucille Ball listed her party affiliation as "Communist" when she registered to vote in 1936 and 1938. In 1936, she sponsored a CP candidate for the state's 57th district. She signed a certificate that stated, "I am registered as affiliated with the Communist Party."
Ball, according to former Communist Party member and writer Rena Vale, who later became an anti-Communist investigator for various government bodies in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., allowed her home to host party educational classes:
Within a few days after my third application to join the Communist Party was made, I received a notice to attend a meeting on North Ogden Drive, Hollywood [Ball's home]. On arrival at this address, I found several others present; an elderly man informed us that we were the guests of the screen actress, Lucille Ball, and showed us various pictures, books and other objects to establish that fact, and stated she was glad to loan her home for a Communist Party new members class.
As chance would have it, yesterday I ordered the bio “I Was That Masked Man” by Clayton Moore.
Obama: Its Lonely Doing All The Work
BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff July 10, 2014 3:17 pm
Obama complained Thursday that hes lonely doing all the work in Washington by himself, without Congress.
You know it is lonely, me just doing stuff. Id love it if the Republicans did stuff too, he said during his speech in Austin, Texas.
For five years (1979-84) he was not allowed to wear it. Then in 1984 he was granted permission to wear the mask again.
through a Spanish to English translation program?
Hollywood was founded by the communists when their attempt to take over NYC media failed.
