    He based it on Keith Richards, apparently.

    My impression on seeing the film was that Depp’s Tonto was actually patterned after Buster Keaton, but I could be wrong…

    People do remember its a fictional movie character based off another fictional character from another media. So I’m sure there are more important things to cry about, and honestly would not see him as one that would deliberately make something look horrible.

    Also cartoon character Pepé Le Pew (an amorous French skunk).

    Actually, Depps’ costume was the only near-authentic thing about the movie. Check out old photo’s of Native Americans and you will find more than a few that look like Depp with his headdress. He, of course, added a few of his own flairs, but htat is what they all did.

    Another thought….Imagine you are a European fresh to the New World and something looking an awful lot like Depp in costume comes screeching out of the shadows with a tomahawk…can you imaging how frightful something like that must have been to the pilgrims and settlers?

    Could you imagine the frightful look of the Indian suddenly facing a matchlock gun as it went off in his face?
    I have seen lots of Indian photos. Never seen one with a dead crow glued to his head. Feathers, headdresses, buffalo hides, never a full bird. Take the bird off you got it right.

    Blame the movie’s costume designer for that, not Depp.

    Actually, my understanding is that the crow was Depp’s idea.


    Mick LaSalle, the reviewer for the SF Chronicle, hated the movie passionately but said that Depp’s performance was the only entertaining part.

    The crow and Tonto’s reason for keeping it with him are all spelled out in the movie.

    You all do realize the Tonto character was regarded as a nut/deeply damaged individual by the other indians in the movie ?- the Lone Ranger’s meeting with the chiefs, when they explained that the child Tonto had been devastated by helping bring about the decimation of his village? So for better or worse, Depp played him as crazy like a fox – much like the Jack Sparrow character.

    The new movie flopped, huh? Serves it right for making Calvindish a cannibalistic wendigo…

    Perhaps Depp said he wanted Tonto to wear a “crown” on his head, but he had a cold when he pitched the idea.
