Typescript signed "John Hart/The Lone Ranger". Color. 8½x11. 1 page. In full: "The Lone Ranger Creed/'I believe that to have a friend,/a man must be one./That all men are created equal and that/everyone has within himself the power to make this/a better world./That God put the firewood there but that every man/must gather and light it himself./In being prepared physically, mentally, and morally to/fight when necessary for that which is right./That a man should make the most of what/equipment he has./That 'This government, of the people, by the people/and for the people' shall live always./That men should live by the rule of what is best/for the greatest number./That sooner or later... somewhere... somehow... we must settle with the world and make payment/for what we have taken./That all things change but truth, and/that truth alone, lives on forever. In my Creator,/my country, my fellow man.'" Baby Boomers probably remember American actorHart (1917-2009) best as the Lone Ranger. The Lone Ranger Creed was a moral code created by Lone Ranger creator Fran Striker for the series' titular character. Hart was a cowboy before becoming an actor and had numerous roles in westerns, including small parts on TV's The Lone Ranger (1950-1953), before being offered the role in 1952. He replaced Clayton Moore, the series' original Lone Ranger, for 52 episodes, when Moore was fired for demanding a higher salary. In one interview, Hart claimed that all 52 episodes were shot in a matter of weeks, with each episode taking only two days to shoot. Hart forged a close relationship with Jay Silverheels, who played Tonto, and his cowboy training helped him to ride the Lone Ranger's horse Silver, whom he said was jumpy and difficult to ride. Hart went on to other roles, including parts on Bat Masterson, Rawhide and Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans. He played another masked hero in The Adventures of Captain Africa, a Columbia serial intended to be a sequel to The Phantom but which had its name and hero changed after Columbia lost the rights to the character. He also played the Lone Ranger for one episode of Happy Days and was cast as a reporter in The Legend of the Lone Ranger, the movie adaptation of the Lone Ranger story. Fine condition.
