“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.
Looks like Blazing Saddles , “Back off or the...... gets it”
Just In The Nick O Time
word on the street says the Whitehouse is in negotiations to purchase the costume.
something about riding up to the border......on a White Horse
The two Colts in the picture are not the original colts he used in the movies, both of those are sitting in a display in our office here in West TX along with the original Mask. My business partner had also won the bid on the holsters but it was refused by the owner and created quite a stink. We came back from that auction with several old Colts and Winchesters. This was 12 to 14 years ago. Something don’t smell right folks.
LOL! Where EXACTLY are the original Colts? Just kiddin’.
If it's bought by anyone who remembers watching the original programs, I can almost guarantee it ain't gonna fit............LOL!
And you can one day hide your own Easter eggs!
Nice collection! Is there a favorite?
At a very young age, I got to meet Clayton Moore, chatted only for a minute or so, one of the questions I asked was whether his guns were real, (yeah dumb kid question I know)
4th row of pistols from the left, that’s a Colt Fluck Dragoon. There’s only about 30 of them still in existence.
The bottom Patterson in the first frame is another, it’s a revolving smoothbore shotgun.
Are they all shooters? You have some pieces in there.
I thought Tonto the Indian took them to the dump to the dump to the dump dump dump...
His house, cars, and gravel landscaping were exclusively in his trademark black and white.
Geez, what a slacker huh? When are they gonna get serious? LOL! Nice stuff.
I met Mr. Moore at a strip shopping mall grand opening. I went thinking that there would be hundreds in line.
There were thousands in line. Four nearby malls as well as the one he was in were jam packed full of cars. We waited three hours in line before we shook hands with him.
Nice guy, a real credit to the character he played. Everyone he met had his full attention.
I did not know that! At least she had the common decency to keep her politics in the closet and out of her work, which is unfortunately no longer the case. However, one now wonders...was the grape-stomping skit an expression of solidarity with the peasants? Was the candy-factory disaster an indictment of the alienation of labor and capital? ;)
LOL. Good one.
