'Wait for me, Wild Bill!' -- Chatsworth's TV Westerns


"Lone Ranger, The" (1949) TV Series
Jay Silverheels as Tonto (220 episodes, 1949-1957)
Clayton Moore as The Lone Ranger (169 episodes, 1949-1957)

Beginning with "The Lone Ranger" in 1949 Chatsworth filming locations were kept busy for more than two decades with the production of TV Westerns.  The construction of the Ronald Reagan Freeway (118) between the San Fernando Valley and Simi Valley was the single most destructive element that caused the demise of Chatsworth's movie (and television) location ranches.
