Uncle Clayton, Aunt Sally, and Family
After completing a short tour of duty in the army air corp.
Uncle Clayton and Aunt Sally
obtained a small dwelling in Santa Monica, Ca.
They moved in with their dogs, Dale and Taffy.
Uncle Clayton went back to work at Republic Pictures.
The attached photo shows two of the serials He did at Republic,
The Grimson Ghost-1946, and Jesse James Rides Again-1947
I Want To Be An Actor
Every up and coming actor has a portfolio.
Uncle Clayton was no exception.
This is one of the first portraits he sent out
to expose himself to Hollywood.
Isn't it ironic that His most famous role.
Would result in the hiding of this very attractive face.
My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys
So it's no suprise that Uncle Clayton
sent out this portrait of himself as a cowboy.
In hopes that he might realize his childhood dream.
Lucky for us, He did that in a big way.
And The Rest Is History
When asked by Mr George Trendle,
"Mr Moore, would you like the part of the Lone Ranger?"
Uncle Clayton replied,
"Mr Trendle, I AM The Lone Ranger!"
