Clayton Moore - "The Lone Ranger"

A favorite tv show as a kid was "The Lone Ranger". The title character was played by veteran actor Clayton Moore, who played in many 'B' western movies in various roles. The tv show was first-run in the 1950s, but I watched it in syndication in the 1960s.

In 1981 I sent Mr. Moore this photo, which he inscribed and signed, and quickly returned. He also enclosed this one, showing him in a few character roles as well as 'The Lone Ranger'.

(Jay Silverheels played the role of 'Tonto', Indian friend of the 'Ranger', but I'd just missed getting his autograph, as he'd died the year before, and was incapacitated by a stroke for some time.)
