    Passable quality Moore shows, horrible serial video, December 5, 2007

    This is just a short review to say the Clayton Moore shows are enjoyable enough, but the Lone Ranger serial is about as poor as you can get. The serial has long been considered lost but turned up in a print with Spanish subtitles. That is the one used here, and it is truly bad video quality and they have enlarged the image to hide the subtitles at the bottom of the print used.

    Even at the cheap price of this DVD set, it is isn’t worth it. Stay away!

    This is a very quick review. I liked the quality of the video and sound. However at the end of each episode the William Tell Overature sounded a little faster than I remembered it. Could it have been some sort of time compression? This is fine quality family entertainment. I loved seeing The Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels and Tonto again. Excellent horsemanship! The Lone Ranger has great values that everyone should learn from. Clayton Moore said that he was a better person for having played the Lone Ranger. We need him today!
