In the new film version of "The Lone Ranger," Johnny Depp redefines Tonto, a classic sidekick in
the original radio and TV series but portrayed here as a Native American spirit
warrior who helps turn John Reid (Armie Hammer) into the masked
legend. Tonto plays an equally important role in the duo's efforts to bring
justice to the Old West. Let's take a look at other movie sidekicks who bring a
lot more than exposition or comic relief to their on-screen colleagues.
