"Who Was That Masked Man?: The Story of the Lone Ranger" chronicles the story of the creation and development of "The Lone Ranger" on radio during the Depression years of the early 1930's, through television, two movie serials, novels, and comic strips. It examines the promotion of the character through radio premiums and merchandising from the late 1930's to the mid-1970's. It covers "The Lone Ranger's" continued growth as a television success beginning in the late 1940's, the production of two motion pictures in the late 1950's, the Lone Ranger's last first-run "Hi-Yo, Silver!" as a Saturday morning television cartoon series in the 1960's, and the character's 1970's resurgence of popularity in radio and television reruns all over the world. In addition to being a definitive work on "The Lone Ranger" property, the book provides the reader with a "behind-the-mike" view of early radio drama, and a "behind-the camera" view of television filmmaking during the 1950's. One hundred and seventy pictures - many of them rare photographs from the radio days - provide visual memories. Another highlight of the book is the inclusion of the complete script from the first Lone Ranger radio program. In addition, Lone Ranger Television, Inc. (a subsidiary of Wrather Corporation) has dug into its archives to provide the author with fascinating background information concerning the development of "The Lone Ranger" property through the years. They have also made available many never-before-published photographs from the television and motion picture years.
