Dean Jones : RIP


A great actor, we will miss you.

Re: RIP to Dean Jones 1931 - 2015

Herbie The Love Bug was one of my all time favorte 'live action' Disney films.

Dean Jones not only made the movie fun & funny but he brought a level
of reality to it ,that was ,what i can only call , a light dramatic touch.

He was also great in 'That Darn Cat' ,The Horse In The Grey Flannel Suit and other films as well. In 1982 ,he even appeared briefly ,in the short lived. "Herbie Teh Love Bug" TV Series.

A salute to a man and actor who was the epitome of being classy and a nice guy.

RIP Dean Jones (1931 - 2015)

Rest in peace, Dean! I thoroughly enjoyed the Disney films he starred in.

What we do in life, echoes in eternity.


Dean Jones's tour de force performance was in St John in Exile. Absolutely amazing performance. He will be missed.


saying "rest in peace" is like stating the obvious. Why say it?
