Quotes of the Day for 14 September 2003 – Alone

Jack Moore was born at Chicago on this day in 1914 and was working as a circus acrobat by age eight. At twenty he was modeling in New York, started doing bit parts and stunts in movies in 1938. He changed his name to Clayton before the war, and focused on western roles after the war, putting a mask on for the first time to play the title role in "Ghost of Zorro" in 1949. Starting in 1952, he really only had one role, again wearing a mask - he played the Lone Ranger on the TV show and in two movies, not to mention countless personal appearances. Here's to the man in the mask, riding off into the sunset, Alone.
