From the Publisher
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 supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?
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.
