Above, the skeletal villain is about to administer a mind control serum to scientist Chambers (played by Kenne Duncan) in THE CRIMSON GHOST (1946) cliffhanger.  I. Stanford Jolley's voice was used as the Crimson Ghost, but under the cape and face mask was Joe Forte.  On the left is Clayton Moore as henchman Ashe.

Above, Stan Segal (left) and son Jeff (right) surround a smiling Clayton Moore. Photo taken September 1979, approximately a week before Moore's 65th birthday, at a film convention at the Biltmore Hotel in New York City.  Notice the wraparound sunglasses and the different 'uniform' on Moore - this was during the legal battles when he was restrained from wearing the LR costume and mask.

Above, buckskin clad Jay Silverheels on two different 'Scouts' during his days portraying Tonto in the LONE RANGER TV show.  Silverheels, whose real name was Harold J. Smith, was born in 1919 (some say 1912) and passed away in 1980.



I Was That Masked Man by Moore and Frank Thompson is a really nice biography of Clayton "Lone Ranger" Moore.  The softcover version measures 6 inches wide x 9 inches high, has about 270 pages, and the appendices in the back of the book include a Moore filmography, a listing of all the LR TV shows by year, more.  And there's about 70 pictures in the book, including several of Moore in the LR costume, but without the mask.  There's many pages devoted to Moore's "bad guy" work in 1940s Republic serials.

The hardcover and softcover versions are now out of print, but I did check some of the used book outfits, and you can find a copy or two (at prices in the $11-$50+ range). On the Old Corral homepage, click on the menu item Books-Print Media-Newsletters-Photos, and then run searches on the various used book websites.
