American actor Clayton Moore was best known for his starring role as the Lone Ranger on the 1950s television series of the same name. The series' running plot involved the exploits of a mysterious former Texas Ranger, the sole survivor of a six-Ranger posse ambushed by a gang of outlaws, who roamed the West with his Native American companion Tonto. The series became the highest-rated program to that point on the fledgling ABC network and its first true hit.
