Lone Ranger – Enter the Lone Ranger (1949)


This is the first episode of the Lone Ranger on TV. The Lone Ranger was a big hit on radio under the direction of George W. Trendel, but knew he didn’t have what it took to direct a TV series so he hired Jack Chertov. The series went on for years and probably was influential in making Westerns the most popular genre of a generation of Americans. In this episode we also find out that keemosawbee means “dirty shirt”.
