"Other" Lone Ranger dead at 91

John Hart, who wore the Masked of Lone Ranger for 54 episodes, and has finally rode of to the sunset one last time.
I have not been around to really remember that show, but some of you guys might have. I think a lot of us owe our superheroes from the Lone Ranger because he is one of the great precursor of our Masked Heroes today that we enjoy watching in the big screen. Sad news, though I'm not familiar with him... my heart still goes to those he left behind.
The article from Hero Complex reads:

Dennis McLellan writes obituaries for the Los Angeles Times, and last week he had one on an actor with an interesting legacy in television: John Hart wore the familiar mask of the Lone Ranger and rode across the small screen with Jay Silverheels (Tonto) for 54 episodes, but will always be remembered as the other Masked Man. Here's an excerpt. -- Geoff Boucher

Most TV fans of a certain age know the answer to the question, "Who played the Lone Ranger?"

Those who say Clayton Moore are correct, at least partially.

There was another actor who played the Masked Man on "The Lone Ranger" television series, temporarily replacing Moore in the title role for 52 episodes beginning in 1952.

John Hart, 91, the handsome and athletic actor who also starred in the 1940s movie serial "Jack Armstrong: The All-American Boy" and the 1950s TV series "Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans," died Sunday at his home in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, said his wife, Beryl.
