Gangs & Outlaws

The Hole-in-the-Wall Gang - Outlaw gang on the western series THE LONE RANGER/ABC/1949-57.

Lead by Butch Cavendish, the Hole-in-the-Wall-Gang was responsible for ambushing six Texas Rangers at Bryant's Gap. Fortunately, one "lone" ranger (Clayton Moore) survived to bring them to justice. The Cavendish gang debuted on the radio in 1933.

The Cavendish Gang, aka "The Hole-in-the-Wall Gang" appeared in the first season of the TV series until the Lone Ranger brought them to justice.

On the radio program, which was the precursor of the TV series,  the Lone Ranger took off his mask at the request of Cavendish who was dying. He had to see the man who had killed him and the Lone Ranger obliged. On the television series, Butch Cavendish (played by Glenn Strange) never saw the real identity of the man who brought him down.
