Customer Review

10 December 2014
I have always been a Jimmy Stewart fan and I really enjoyed this account of his life. I have read other novels about Stewart and have watched most of his films and his slow drawl can be a bit hard to take, but the genuine nature of the man and his patriotic and conscientious approach to most challenges he faced in life and playing characters in his movies was very appealing. He lived an admirable life- apart from his years of womanising in the thirties and his tendency to adopt a very conservative approach to the Red Scare in the late forties. The novel tells how Stewart was a spy for Edgar Hoover and how he refused to be intimidated by the Mafia who were trying to dominate Hollywood in the forties and fifties. This was all a revelation to me. I thoroughly enjoyed Munn's book and thoroughly recommend it to others who may be Jimmy Stewart fans
