Thanks Danny.

Try this - not a very good one I'm afraid, but I'm in a rush!

OK, because I don't like this clue & it hasn't generated any attempts, I'll close it & give a free baton.

I don't like it because (a) the answer's too short & (b) the clue doesn't quite work as well as it should do. The answer is Tom Mix.

Free baton.

Errrr... do you really mean the answer is just one letter, Danny? If so, can I just list all 26, and see which matches? ;)

Spot on

In Spanish Tonto means silly, and the Lone Rangers faithful friend was Tonto.
