But that just scratches the surface of a saga that encompasses such diverse pursuits as marathon dancing, doubling in movies for Maurice Chevalier, and serving as bodyguard to screen siren Mae West. He becomes a rarity among pro wrestling-amateur boxing promoters because hes celebrated as an honest one. Outdoors lovers will laugh joyfully as he goes hunting with a crooked barrel shotgun, battles a giant swordfish that got away, and plays three rounds of golf on three different courses in the same day. He also becomes a superlative WWII patriot and humanitarian.

This is an engrossing tale about a most unusual man with a most unusual tale to tell.
