There is a new book about JW on the horizon, just got word and wanted to let you have the following info:
It's not out yet, written by Michael Munn (who's a busy bee in the field of unauthorized biografies).
Anyway, there is this episode he writes about which is probably pure Hollywood legend stuff - but too good not to be repeated here!
Munn claims to have found proof that Stalin gave orders to have JW killed because he was to active in anti-communist-institutions for the dictator's taste.
According to Munn, Russian spys sneaked into Warner Brothers but JW's bodyguards (bodyguards??? c'mon!) pulled the Duke out. Next scene: JW has kinda firing squad lined up at the beach - to let them Russkies know it's bad for their health to mess with the US - but they only shoot blanks.
And we thought his FILMS were exciting!
