Stalin Ordered the Assassination of John Wayne

I found this Wikipedia entry that maintains Stalin ordered the assassination of John Wayne. Crazy stuff. I wonder what declassified documents will reveal 50 years from now about what goes on today:

Wikipedia: "Soviet documents released in 2003 reveal that, despite being a fan of Wayne's movies, Joseph Stalin ordered Wayne's assassination due to his strong anti-communist politics. Stalin died before the killing could be accomplished. His successor, Nikita Khrushchev, reportedly told Wayne during a 1958 visit to the United States that he had personally rescinded the order.[27][28]"
