The Lone Ranger and Tonto, supervised by Silver

Original caption: The Lone Ranger rides again, and again---as generations of Americans recognize the familiar theme and the hearty "Hi Yo Silver" of the famous masked man. Sunday, January 30th, marks the 50th anniversary of the first Lone Ranger radio show, and the start of a year-long anniversary celebration. The show first aired in 1933 on WXYZ, Detroit. In all 3,500 radio shows, two 15-chapter Republic serials, 221 television segments and three theatrical releases have been produced, according to the Wrather Corporation, which still syndicates the television series. Over the years, some 18 actors have portrayed the larger-than-life hero on radio and television.
