The Lone Ranger (Warner Bros., 1956). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Italian 2 - Fogli (39.5" X 55") Luigi Martinati Artwork. Young John Reid, left for dead, was the only Texas Ranger to survive an ambush by the evil Butch Cavendish and his gang. Found and nursed back to health by an old Indian friend, Tonto, Reid recovered and vowed to dedicate his life to avenging his fallen comrades and eradicating evil in the Old West. Donning a black mask, he became the Lone Ranger, one of the most iconic fictional characters of the twentieth century. The Ranger had appeared on radio, in the pulps and comics, and in several serials prior, but the television series starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels and this feature film adapted from the series was the height of success for the character. This piece looks great after professional repairs to slight edge and fold wear, fold separations, and pinholes. Also addressed were a few tears and mild chipping the the folds. The borders have been airbrushed.
