The Lone Ranger is taking off his dark glasses and putting on his mask once again.
Actor Clayton Moore, who played the Western hero in 208 television episodes, said today that he can once again portray the masked man fighting for law and order. "Fair play has prevailed and the Lone Ranger believes in fair play," he said.
In 1979, the Wrather Corp., which owns the rights to the Lone Ranger character, obtained a restraining order preventing Moore, 69, from appearing at public functions as the masked rider.
The corporation was introducing a new and younger Lone Ranger, Klinton Spilsbury, in a new film, "The Legend of the Lone Ranger."
