The so-called "feature film" The Lawless is actually a compilation of three full-color Lone Ranger TV episodes. Each installment was drawn from the series' 1955-56 season, and each stars Clayton Moore as the Masked Rider of the Plains and Jay Silverheels as his faithful Indian companion Tonto. Though not related by plot, the three episodes have a common theme: the misuse of the law by its minions. In the best of the three adventures, the Lone Ranger and Tonto catch up with a gang of criminals posing as military officers. At least 13 ersatz features like The Lawless were edited together from the final 39 Lone Ranger programs.
