While browsing through the Used DVD bin at my local Blockbuster earlier this week I stumbled upon a Goodtimes video compilation of the Lone Ranger that contained on side one the feature version of the 1938 Lone Ranger serial re-titled "Hi yo Silver" The print quality was quite good and since it is the only footage from the original U.S. release existing it does not contain the Spanish subs. the other side of the disc is a compilation of clips called "the Lost Episodes" ranging from trailers, complete vintage episodes with orignial commercials (Tootsie Rolls) some cereal tie in commercials with Clayton Moore, a late 1950's savings type bond film as well as some of those 1970's commercials with Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels for Aquavelva aftershave, Dodge automobiles (a number of them) and finally one of the best commericals for Jeno's pizza rolls..........Hi yo Pizza rolls!.....quite the little treasure trove for only 3.99

Oh well thought I would share that with you..

till next

I also have that DVD. I think I got it from a Wal-Mart bargain bin. Absolutely worth the $3.99 and a good deal more.

A commercial that is not only one of my all-time favorites, but one that sprang from the fertile imagination of one of my comedy heroes, Stan Freberg.

I have a combo CD/DVD album that contains some of the best of Freberg's commercials.

Thanks for the post, Inspector. I believe I will mosey over to the local Wal-Mart (and Best Buy, and Blockbuster, and...) to see if by chance I can snag a copy of what sounds like an excellent bargain.

My favorite part of that pizza rolls commercial is when the waiter comes over to the Ranger and Tonto with a tray full of the pizza rolls.

The Ranger shakes his head and waves the man off, but as he passes Tonto, the Indian grabs the man's arm and proceeds to empty the entire tray into his handbag!!

Not a smile on either one's face!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Cor - I ordered that back in 2004, IIRC, from Amazon - they kept emailing to say they had run out of stock and would I like to wait - in the end I decided to order something else - I should have waited - sounds very interesting.

I haven't had any luck finding this DVD. Could someone provide the full title of the DVD release, or perhaps a link to it? Thanks in advance.

A feature version of the Lone Ranger MAY exist, but I've exhausted ALL my links and resources only to have come up empty handed.

There is a reference to a COLOR Clayton Moore Ranger movie called "The Lone Ranger Rides Again" which is taken from a three episode story arc of the TV show and featurized in '55. It follows the origin of the Lone Ranger and Tonto and all.

This is a rare and hard to come by film, but for the serial-feature....nada!

Anyone else have a clue?


**NOTICE**

Apparently, the Color Clayton Moore Ranger film has been remastered and retitled as: "The Origin of the Lone Ranger", or as "Enter: The Lone Ranger", or simply, "The Lone Ranger".

ALL titles are the SAME three episode story arc that I mentioned and can be found on eBay.

Okay, I'm no Lone Ranger expert, but I believe there are two "Lone Ranger" movies from the '50s floating around. One, Legend of the Lone Ranger, is a compilation of TV shows, including the Ranger's origin. The other, The Lone Ranger and the Lost City of Gold, was a "real" movie in widescreen and everything.

At one time, VCI offered a bunch of Lone Ranger DVDs, including those. Currently, they do not offer them; they lost the rights.

What I've got from VCI is called "The Lone Ranger Classic Western Double-Feature" and it contains a two-sided disc. Side one has Legend of the Lone Ranger (listed as "78 min., B/W, 1952") and the other the Hi-Yo Silver feature (68 min., V/W, 1940). I watched the featurized serial a few years ago and the quality was indeed excellent. The VCI DVD is copyright 1999 and it says the films are © Republic Pictures Corporation under license from Golden Books Family Entertainment. This is DVD #8225. You can probably buy it cheap online, maybe, perhaps, somewhere.

Hope something in here helps!

The 2 real movies are Warner Bros. "The Lone Ranger" (1956) and United Artists "The Lone Ranger and the Lost City of Gold" (1958). And of course that horrible Clinton Spilsbury one from the 1980's.

Both of these 50s movies have been available for quite some time from VCI in very good prints. Be careful, though, there are two versions: a correct widescreen version of each movie and a panned-and-scanned version.

The origin of The Lone Ranger is shown at the start of The Lone Ranger and the Lost City of Gold with a song that goes #Six Texas Rangers... :D

It's been ages since I've seen it but it must be interesting to compare with the first episode of the TV series, Enter The Lone Ranger, which I've got.
