January 25, 1931 – September 1, 2015
Dean Jones was born 92 years ago. For me, he will always he Jim Douglas from the Herbie movies. The Love Bug (1969) is a real favorite around here (proven by a load of Herbie books and toys).
While it’s easy to think of him as just the guy in all the Disney movies, he was also in great stuff like Tea And Symphony (1956), Jailhouse Rock (1957) and Torpedo Run (1958). Oh, and he owned the Herbie with the Porsche motor in it, used for the racing scenes.
