Sad news, indeed. I always liked Dean Jones as an actor. He was the perfect counterpoint to Elvis in Jailhouse Rock, being able to play square and upright with ease. But the niche he found in family movies served both him, and films like That Darn Cat!, The Ugly Dachshund and The Love Bug well. And they were smash hits, too. The latter going squarely against the grain of new cinematic languages in dialogue, sex and violence to become the highest earning film of 1969.

R.I.P. Dean Jones.

Never knew this actor was in Jailhouse Rock and in another 'classic' Herbie.

He was a very pleasant actor.

P.S. I thought Elvis starred in "Jailhouse Rock." ;-)
