Behind the Mask

Jack was born in Chicago, and he was a circus acrobat who became a high wire walker and performed at the 1934 Chicago World's Fair. After the fair, he went to New York City where his handsome face and frame was in demand as a male model for magazine and billboard ads. Following his success as a model he headed for Hollywood, which was becoming the center of the motion picture industry. After playing small parts as a stunt man and a few bit parts in Westerns mostly, a motion picture producer was talking to him one day and suggested that his first name might be too common to be memorable, and suggested that he might change his name to 'Clayton,' and the rest, as they say, is history. As a young boy in the 1950's no Saturday morning was complete unless I watched The Roy Rogers Show and The Lone Ranger. Clayton Moore was the masked Texas Ranger who brought all sorts of Western renegades to justice with his trusty side kick Tonto, played by Jay Silverheels. His voice as the Lone Ranger still rings in my ears fifty years later, and when he first spoke in this motion picture it was as if I were ten again and The Lone Ranger was in control. Clayton Moore enjoyed being the Lone Ranger so much that long after the television series was over he continued appearing wherever he could as the masked Ranger. I remember a stink back in the mid 1970's where he was forced by a court to no longer appear in public as The Lone Ranger. It seems that the company that owned the franchise wanted to film a new updated Lone Ranger blockbuster movie with a new young rugged star, and they didn't want the public to remember the old 1950's Ranger. Well, Clayton Moore hung up his hat and mask, and the movie was made. I never saw it, but I am told that the voice of the new ranger was so different and so awkward sounding when compared to the voice of Clayton Moore that the studio decided to have a voice actor dub his voice over the screen actor. And how did the movie do at the theaters of the mid 1970's? I understand that it was one of the legendary flops of the decade, and that the actor that was to become the new Lone Ranger never worked in movies again. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn and enjoy the voice of the REAL Lone Ranger as he portrays Buffalo Bill Cody in Tomahawk Territory.
