The Gray Ghost (DVD)
$24.00 $22.00

originally aired 1957-1958
black and white; two volumes; approximately 160 minutes each

“We took our men from Texas, Kentucky, and Virginia; from the mountains and the backwoods and the plains. We put them under orders — guerrilla fighting orders, and what we lacked in numbers, we made up in speed and brains. Both Rebs and Yankee strangers, they called us ‘Mosby’s Rangers.’ Both North and South they knew our fame. Gray Ghost is what they called me; John Mosby is my name.” This memorable monologue opened each episode of this classic television series which was aired by CBS for the year of 1957-1958. Based on the real-life military career of the legendary Confederate hero Major John Singleton Mosby, whose daring exploits and elusive raids of the Yankee forces in Virginia earned him the nickname “Gray Ghost,” this show was devoted to duty, honor, and love of country. Unfortunately, The Gray Ghost ran for only one season (39 episodes). It remained popular in syndication, primarily in the South, for more than ten years before it disappeared from television completely. Starring Tod Andrews (ironically a New Yorker) as Mosby and Phil Chambers as his tobacco-chewing sidekick, Lieutenant Myles Magruder. The twelve episodes on these two discs are extremely difficult to find, especially at this low price. Due to the age and rarity of the film, the picture and sound quality varies from episode to episode.
