  1. What is fascinating is that Stan Jolley's late father, I. Stanford Jolley, (don't laugh that's his real name), was a key actor in B-Westerns in the 40s and 50s. His father died at either 77 or 78 and he came from a show business family. Now that's something. RIP Stan. Now you can be "Jolley" up in Heaven. (No pun intended).
