About the Event

This was the second of two theatrical features expanding on the TV show The Lone Ranger, which helped audiences explore concepts of heroes and sidekicks, the American West as a land of adventure, and representations of Native Americans in television and film. Includes a screening of the very first television episode “Enter the Lone Ranger” as part of the 70th anniversary of the TV show. Introduced by Native actor & writer Jason Grasl (Blackfeet). Screening followed by a conversation with film critic Leonard Maltin and Dawn Moore, daughter of star Clayton Moore.
Directed by Lesley Selander | Starring Clayton Moore, Jay Silverheels, and Douglas Kennedy
Screened in conjunction with Gold at the [Au]try.

This ongoing series explores the wide range of movies that can be considered Westerns, and the ways in which they shape our understanding of the American West. Each screening includes a guest lecturer who will introduce the film and explains its significance in the genre.
