Jan Sterling, Actress: Ace in the Hole. One of Hollywood's more talented and watchable stars on screen was sullen, strikingly stick-thin 50s actress Jan Sterling who didn't quite reach the top echelon of stardom but certainly ensured audiences of a real good time with her sexy pout and flashy style in soaps, film noir and saucy comedy. Jan was born Jane Sterling Adriance in Born: "Poor devil," commented Merrivale through a cloud of smoke. "After leaving certain legacies to his servants he bequeathed the sum of ten thousand pounds to you." "Ten thousand uncles," exclaimed Merrivale leaping from his chair, "And I sitting here staring at an envelope containing such news and wondering which of my creditors was being unkind.".
