Some 300 entertainment writers descend upon Santa Fe this week to take part in media events tied to the upcoming release of a new Lone Ranger movie starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. But longtime residents realize that this isn’t the city’s first dance with the masked man.

Back in 1980, a movie called The Legend of The Lone Ranger — directed by William Fraker and starring Klinton Spilsbury in the title role, Michael Horse as Tonto and Christopher Lloyd as the villainous Butch Cavendish — came to shoot some scenes in the Santa Fe area.

    How did Native Americans let this movie get away with calling the Indian a stupid idiot fool,, Tonto means stupid idiot fool. And they're all worried about the Washington Redskins, or the Browns.Do I see a double standard?

    Lord have mercy it's a frigging movie, not a cure for cancer.... or even boredom. I was walking through my little village the other day and I came upon a movie set. It seems this little known show called Longmire has chosen Pecos as it's home base even though it's supposed to take place in Montana or Wyoming. Could someone give these bozos a map? Anyway, as I pass I see a crowd discussing the next scene like they are getting ready to split the atom. Then they ask/tell me to walk n the other side of the street like my presence will somehow ruin the creative vibe. My bad, I did not realize that it took a creative vibe to film a cable tv show and not just a camera and a few over the hill actors.
