Legend of the Lone Ranger ★½ 1981 (PG)

The fabled Lone Ranger (whose voice is dubbed throughout the entire movie) and the story of his first meeting with his Indian companion, Tonto, are brought to life in this weak and vapid version of the famous legend. The narration by Merle Haggard leaves something to be desired as do most of the performances. 98m/C VHS . Klinton Spilsbury, Michael Horse, Jason Robards Jr., Richard Farnsworth, Christopher Lloyd, Matt Clark; D: William A. Fraker; W: William Roberts, Ivan Goff, Michael Kane; M: John Barry. Golden Raspberries ‘81: Worst Actor (Spilsbury), Worst New Star (Spilsbury).
