This is a US 27" x 41" one-sheet for the 1981 William A. Fraker
film The Legend of the Lone Ranger based on a screenplay by
Ivan Goff, Ben Roberts, Michael Kane and William Roberts, adaptation
by Gerald B. Derloshon and starring Klinton Spilsbury as The Lone
Ranger (John Reid). Plot summary: Law student John Reid is riding as
an observer with a party of Texas rangers, including his brother Dan,
when it is ambushed and massacred by a ruthless outlaw named
Bartholomew "Butch" Cavendish [Christopher Lloyd], a dishonorably
discharged former major in the Union Army. Reid, wounded and left for
dead, is the sole survivor. Tonto [Michael Horse], his childhood
Comanche friend (and trail guide and mentor later on in the arts of
riding and shooting), finds him after the outlaws leave and helps him
recover from his injuries over the objections of his fellow tribesmen.
After that Reid and Tonto dedicate their lives to a two-man vigilante
crusade against evil, beginning with the rescue of President Grant
[Jason Robards] when Cavendish takes him hostage, even though his
brother Dan had told him of his low opinion of Washington politicians
before he was killed by Cavendish: "In Texas, robbers are outlaws. In
Washington, robbers are elected." This film is an admirable effort to
add a historic backstory to the mysterious legend of the Lone Ranger
and also to replace the American public's silver screen idea of the
Lone Ranger as popularized by Clayton Moore in his television role as
the masked rider; its promoters made a financially devastating error
and generated massive negative publicity for the film when with
litigation they tried unsuccessfully to ban Moore from appearing in
public as the Lone Ranger.
