A Celebration of Western Movies … Pardner!

 The Lone Ranger Opening Theme 

The Lone Ranger Theme Music / William Tell Overture 

Normally I’m pretty excited when I hear there’s a new Western being made …
But when I heard that the movie was a remake of The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp playing Tonto … I had my reservations (if you’ll excuse the expression).
But then I heard that the project had been axed … due to a lack of wampum (if you’ll excuse the expressions).
But then I herd it wuz back on again – them having raised the loot and lowered the costs.
Anyway … the project is now in the can and below is the recent info.
My fears that the movie might insult the legacy, legend and traditional of original Lone Ranger and Tonto are still not thwarted, but we still don’t have enough info to know whether this project will fly or not.

I hope I’m wrong.

    Seems we are all writing about the same thing. Tomorrow’s post is the same subject. I don’t think Johnny Depp is MY Tonto.
