James Arness in an early role.
1 July 2013 | by grizzledgeezerSee all my reviews

This episode is worth seeing for James Arness playing a lay-about deputy, who's more interested in his daily shave and hair styling (combing is hair styling, isn't it?) than in enforcing the law. He's about as opposite to Marshal Dillon as you can imagine. His acting is an obvious attempt to mimic John Wayne.

"The Lone Ranger" is the /only/ radio program, of any genre, that has ever struck me as being full of kinky/weird double-entendres. The TV show doesn't have anywhere nearly as many. But...

One of the criminals is nicknamed "Dimple" Henshaw (!!!), because his chin was injured when hit with a rock shard dislodged by a bullet the Lone Ranger fired. As this requires him to maintain a scruffy beard to hide the horribly disfiguring injury (I'm being sarcastic), Dimple really has it in for the Lone Ranger. He has the following exchange with his partner in crime...

"I'm taking that masked hombre alive!"

"Why do you want to take him alive?"

"So I can kill him!"

I used to think that the perceived kinkiness of the radio show was the product of my imagination. Now I'm not so sure.
