He later worked as a John Robert Powers model and in the 1930s, he relocated to Hollywood. They had one child together. Moore responded by changing his costume slightly and replacing the Domino mask with similar-looking Foster Grant wraparound sunglasses, and by counter-suing Wrather. Also, Wrather did not want to encourage the belief that the 65-year-old Moore would be playing the role in the new picture. Throughout his career, Moore expressed respect and love for Silverheels. (Wrather's new motion picture of the character, The Legend of the Lone Ranger, was released in 1981 and was a critical and commercial failure.). Moore was buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale. During World War II (1939-1945) he was called up to the US Army Air Forces and joined the First Motion Picture Unit making training films. The Finale or "cavalry charge" of the The William Tell Overture by Gioachino Rossini was used as the theme music for The Lone Ranger in the movies, serials, television and on radio and for Lark (cigarette) television commercials in the 1960s. The new film was released in 1981 but flopped. Moore later married Connie Moore (1986-1989) before meeting Clarita Petrone and marrying her in 1992. Sally Angela Moore (Allen) Birthdate: June 12, 1912: Death: February 22, 1986 (73) Place of Burial: Glendale, Los Angeles County, California, United States: Immediate Family: Daughter of Bernard Bachul and Anna Bachul Wife of Clayton Moore Mother of Dawn Angela Gerrity Sister of Private . He is most remembered for The Lone Ranger. Moore trained his voice to sound like the radio version of The Lone Ranger, which had then been on the air since 1933, and succeeded in lowering his already distinctive baritone even further. This move proved to be a public relations disaster. Moving to Hollywood in the late 1930s, he worked as a stunt man and bit player between modeling jobs. Moore's career advanced in 1949, when George Trendle spotted him in the Ghost of Zorro serial. As creator-producer of The Lone Ranger radio show (with writer Fran Striker), Trendle was about to launch the television version. community [1][5][6][7], Articles containing potentially dated statements from 2014, All articles containing potentially dated statements, Articles incorporating text from Find a Grave.com, Articles incorporating text from Wikipedia, Burials at Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Glendale), National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, The Lone Ranger and the Lost City of Gold, "Clayton Moore, the 'Lone Ranger,' dead at 85", http://edition.cnn.com/1999/SHOWBIZ/TV/12/28/obit.moore/index.html, "Clayton Moore, Television's Lone Ranger And a Persistent Masked Man, Dies at 85", http://www.nytimes.com/1999/12/29/arts/clayton-moore-television-s-lone-ranger-and-a-persistent-masked-man-dies-at-85.html?scp=1&sq=&pagewanted=1, "Who's That Masked Man?
