Dick Van Dyke, indisputably one of the greats of the golden
age of television, is admired and beloved by audiences the
world over for his beaming smile, his physical dexterity,
his impeccable comic timing, his ridiculous stunts, and his
unforgettable screen roles.
His trailblazing television program, The Dick Van Dyke Show
(produced by Carl Reiner, who has written the foreword to
this memoir), was one of the most popular sitcoms of the
1960s and introduced another major television star, Mary
Tyler Moore. But Dick Van Dyke was also an enormously
engaging movie star whose films, including Mary Poppins and
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, have been discovered by a new
generation of fans and are as beloved today as they were
when they first appeared. Who doesn’t know the word
A colorful, loving, richly detailed look at the decades of a
multilayered life, My Lucky Life In and Out of Show
Business, will enthrall every generation of reader, from
baby-boomers who recall when Rob Petrie became a household
name, to all those still enchanted by Bert’s “Chim Chim
Cher-ee.” This is a lively, heartwarming memoir of a
performer who still thinks of himself as a “simple
song-and-dance man,” but who is, in every sense of the word,
a classic entertainer.
