Legion of Old Timers The Lone Ranger TV show
Bob Kittredge is being forced by Red Devers to sell the ranch he inherited from his father. The Lone Ranger and Tonto, aided by Banty Bishop and the old ranch hands rescue Kittredge, and the ranch (and jobs of the ranch hands) are restored. Although George W. Trendle retained the title of producer, he recognized that his experience in radio would not be adequate for producing the television series. For this, he hired veteran MGM film producer Jack Chertok. Chertok served as the producer for the first 182 episodes as well as for a rarely seen 1955 color special retelling the origin.
