Hi-yo Silver! The Lone Ranger returns...

The hero's mask and other memorabilia is for sale in Birmingham, UK tomorrow

The Lone Ranger - a Texas ranger who rode about the Old West doing good deeds - is a character that most people will have heard of even if they missed all the shows.

First appearing as a radio character in 1933, the character went on to star in a television series and several movies.

Tomorrow, Friday March 18, three original items from the 1958 film The Lone Ranger and The Lost City of Gold are to auction at the Birmingham auctioneers Biddle and Webb.

These include The Lone Ranger's Mask and Gloves and Tonto's Headband given as a prize by Picture Show and Film Pictorial, together with related provenance and a collection of photographs of various Hollywood Film Stars, some with signatures.

Clayton Moore took the lead role in the 1958 film whilst his quiet but shrewd sidekick Tonto was played by Jay Silverheels. The items are expected to bring 2,000-3,000.
