The Galloping Ghost (1931) is a Mascot movie serial. The title is actually the nickname of the star, American football player Harold 'Red' Grange.



Red Grange is thrown off the Clay College football team in disgrace when his friend, Buddy Courtland, takes a bribe to throw the big game and Red attacks him. Red then proceeds to investigate and hunt down the head of the gambling ring responsible. Red eventually clears his name and both he and Buddy are reinstated on the team.



Grange received this starring role thanks to his business manager, and theater owner, Frank Zambrino. The serial took three weeks to film and Grange earned $4,500 overall.[1]

Director B. Reeves Eason was reportedly fired during filming and replaced by the uncredited Benjamin H. Kline.



This serial was filmed at a time before "stuntmen did mostly everything" which meant that Grange had to do a lot of his own stunts.[1]
