Stanford Jolley, Jr., known as Stan Jolley (May 17, 1926 – June 4, 2012) was an American art director and production designer, originally employed by Walt Disney Studios before he struck out on his own. He was nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Art Direction for the 1985 film Witness.[1]

He was the son of character actor I. Stanford Jolley, Sr., and Emily Mae "Peggy" Jolley. His sister, the late Sandra Jolley Carson, was the former wife of actor Forrest Tucker and the widow of Jack Carson.

In 1958, Jolley's father appeared on ABC's Walt Disney Presents in the role of Sheriff Adams in the episode "Law and Order, Incorporated", with Robert Loggia as Elfego Baca. His then 32-year-old son was the art director of the segment.[2] Others in the episode were former child actor Skip Homeier and Raymond Bailey, later the banker Milburn Drysdale of CBS's The Beverly Hillbillies.[3]

He died of gastric cancer in June 2012.[4][5]
