posted by Nell Minow

The  Johnny Depp “Lone Ranger” will be out July 3, so it is a good time to take a look at the classic television series.  Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger is America’s quintessential Western hero and a steadfast symbol for truth and justice. After three feature films, more than 3,000 radio shows, 220 TV episodes, 18 novels, hundreds of comic books, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame—and now a new Disney theatrical feature film in theaters July 3—The Lone Ranger rides again!

Beginning May 21, three all-new classic Lone Ranger DVD singles, The Lone Ranger: Hi-Yo Silver, Away!, The Lone Ranger: Kemo Sabe, and The Lone Ranger: Who Was That Masked Man?, will be available at $6.99 each. For the serious fan, a special Collector’s Edition limited set will be available June 4 for $199.99.  It will feature all five complete seasons (221 episodes on 30 DVDs) in a high-end box set resembling a coffee table book. Bonus content will include two full length features, a complete episode guide containing a synopsis for all 221 episodes, the original “Lone Ranger” radio broadcast from 1950, and a rare comic book and photo reprint, in addition to much more.
