In McNeil’s version of the television series, Tonto rewrites the script, demoting the Lone Ranger to obedient sidekick. Here the jailed former hero attempts to catch his boss’s attention, but Tonto has work to do. Our new hero, like McNeil himself, sets out to revise the tired stereotypes of American Indians perpetuated by the show.
