Personal Appearance of Clayton Moore
Back in the mid fifties (I guess 1958) my mother took me to a local amusement park called Pleasure Beach--this was a very special day--my cowboy hero Clayton Moore was appearing in person as The Lone Ranger!!! I remember him coming out with two policemen and marching right past me! I could just stare!!! It really was Clayton(no mistake on that). He spoke to the crowd, answered questions (someone asked where was Tonto--he said "Back at the Lone Ranger Ranch!") He shot off one of his pistols and laughed saying "That gets louder every time!" Later my mother said I should have reached out and touched him when he walked by. I can still see The Ranger as clear as yesterday!
