Trivia

Although the film's opening credits list John Singleton Mosby's rank as Lieutenant, during the course of the film, he carries out his most famous act, the capture of Union General Edwin H. Stoughton. This action was done deep in enemy territory and was completed without a shot being fired. Mosby was quickly promoted to Major after the mission. See more »

The TV Series Gray Ghost should be mentioned
21 February 2005 | by dphelan-1See all my reviews

In 1957 there was a short-lived series called " The Gray Ghost" based on the exploits of John Singleton Mosby. It starred Todd Andrews. In that series Mosby was pretty heroic and was never ranked at anything less than a Major. After seeing Ken Burns' CIVIL WAR, I learned more about Mosby. While he was not a major figure in the war, he did become a footnote in history. The series was a juvenile adventure made during the era of the television western. It was among the many, many shows I watched as a kid both network and syndicated. I remember it being on Fridays but if it was syndicated it could have played at various times. It was never my favorite and I was unaware until recently of the existence of the film where Jack Ging played Mosby.
