Enter The Lone Ranger

A group of six Texas Rangers is ambushed and all are shot, apparently dead. One lives and is found by a native Indian, Tonto. Tonto tends to the survivor's health and complies with his wish to make him a mask and to create an empty sixth grave to appear that he is dead.

John Reid, the sole surviving Texas Ranger of a murderous ambush, becomes the great masked hero with his companion, Tonto.
