Dean Jones - a special plea by Robert Steven Mack

Dean Jones is one of my favorite Disney stars. His charm and one of a kind charisma is something you expect in Disney movies. Mr. Jones’ warm grin, heroic deeds, and easy going attitude has given us delight and pleasure that we will cherish for years to come. And somehow it surprises me that with all his credited work and statue, he does not have a box set of movies or a Dean Jones Collection of his own. It may be for legal reasons or reasons of personal interest, but why not give Dean Jones his own collection? And if it is so negotiated, then why not bring forth to the public films of Dean Jones that are not widely heard of or talked about? So many know “The Love Bug” and “That Darn Cat,” but how many people are familiar with films like “The Million Dollar Duck,” “Snowball Express,” or “The Ugly Dushwald” or perhaps “Monkey Go Home?” While less people are likely to have these films, it is probable that it would be attractive to have these films plus the five episodes of “Herbie the Match Maker” TV series. And some of the names and characters will likely strike a familiar bell as Suzanne Pleshette frequently paired with Dean Jones and Charlie Ruggles in The Ugly Dashwald. Disney's well known villain Keenan Wayne goes against Dean Jones, Nancy Olsen, and Harry Morgan in the wintery romp “Snowball Express.” I'm sure audiences would love to see Dean Jones as Jim Douglas in five rare Herbie episodes and I know I would, too. If you appreciate classic Disney magic and those lovable Dean Jones’ romps, then I suggest these films to you. If you can find them -although I think the magic would only grow if there was Dean Jones collection. Copyright 2011 by Robert Steven Mack (all rights reserved!)
