Who was that Masked Man?
This movie was released under a lot of negative publicity that the producers brought on themselves. It all started with their shabby treatment of Clayton Moore who was at the time making a good living with personal appearances in his most famous role. The producers felt this would hurt the film, so Moore was slapped with a cease and desist order. Moore counter-sued and won. If that weren't enough, there was what seemed to be an ill-advised push to tap into the Youth Market by casting two actors, who are still unknown to this day, into the lead roles. All of this resulted in a box office failure. Compounding matters was timing, since it was released after the HEAVEN'S GATE fiasco. People refused to watch big screen westerns until Clint Eastwood returned as the "Man with No Name" in PALE RIDER. No doubt, Clayton Moore rode off into the sunset shouting "Hi ho Silver", and having the last laugh.
The Legend Of The Lone Ranger Movie Review
Although this movie may have been a flop at the box office, the timing was when America needed a new hero to lead the greatest country in the world. The United States did just that when Ronald Reagan was elected president. Like U.S. Grant, President Reagan did not give in to terrorists like Carter did. The hostages being held by Iran were being released as President-elect Reagan was being sworn in.Had this movie had the hype that other movies have today, and the generation that grew up during the original radio and TV shows went to see this movie, it would have done better that the Friday the 13th movie just released in 2009.It will always be a classic to me, even though it won no awards or broke any box office records. Why? Because it did not have to resort to the sexual content or language seen and heard in other movies. Violence? Yes, it had its share. But this was necessary to keep current events in perspective. Terrorists still threaten our way of life today and as in the movie, they must be brought to justice. The players may change, but the result remains the same. The good guy wins and the bad guy loses.
