The Lone Ranger, that daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains, had become a favorite of radio audiences, young and old.  Republic Pictures recognized the value of this hero, and in 1938 released The Lone Ranger, a cliffhanger serial that ran for fifteen nail-biting episodes at the Saturday movie matinee.

The serial used an interesting twist to keep the audience guessing, and returning week after week:  Five Texas Rangers.  These Rangers shared hero duties, but over the course of the fifteen chapters the Rangers die heroically one after another until only one remains.  His identity is kept secret until the final chapter.  He is, literally, The Lone Ranger remaining.

The “Five Rangers” were Lee Powell, George Letz, Hal Taliaferro, Lane Chandler, and Herman Brix.  Tonto was played by Victor Daniels (aka Chief Thunder-Cloud).
