Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mosby's Marauders, a Disney production released theatrically in Europe, began life as a three-part offering on the TV series Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. Jack Ging plays Lieutenant (later Major) Mosby, a Confederate spy who elusiveness earned him the nickname "The Gray Ghost." While Mosby's activities carry the intrigue portion of the program, the film concentrates on the adventures of young rebel soldier Willie Prentiss (Kurt Russell), who forms a shaky but basically solid friendship with Yankee corporal Henry Jenkins (James MacArthur). Mosby's Marauders was originally telecast over a three-week period in January of 1967 under the blanket title Willie and the Yank.
