I was writing something the other day (about the use of classical music by movies and TV; I’ll post it soon) and it occurred to me that the Long Ranger is a character we haven’t seen much of in pop culture lately… though there are rumors of a feature film, and there’s also a popular comic book at the moment, which perhaps bodes well for the masked avenger’s return. With Robin Hood-esque characters abounding today, the time certainly seems right for his return.
One thing I never understood, though: How could he be a lone ranger if he had a faithful companion?
