Biography & Autobiography. Performing Arts. Nonfiction. HTML:A heartfelt memoir from one of Hollywood's greatest icons

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.
           
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 class

Surprisingly fun and engaging read that goes very quickly.

I didn't learn too many new things, other than the author seems as genuinely pleasant as the characters he's played.

There were a few turns of phrase that just made me hear his voice perfectly, and I'd wished I'd been listening to an unabridged audio version of it...but only if DVD himself did the narration.

Worth the time if you want a light bio on an exemplary performer and person. ( )

I love the Everyman's Library Pocket Poets Edition books. These little books are packed with poems, from the Author(s). I have read some several times. I have even used them to teach about poetry and the works of the certain author. Nice add to any library. ( )

I really enjoyed learning more about Dick Van Dyke's life and career. While I knew about The Dick Van Dyke show, I don't think I've ever actually watched it (or most of Dick's other work, honestly). I really only know him from "Mary Poppins" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." ( )

My Lucky Life by Dick Van Dyke is a 2011 Crown publication.
Dick Van Dyke was one of the first actors I have a strong memory of. His TV show was popular with my parents and of course all those wonderful family friendly movies were aimed right at me, putting me in just the right place and time to watch his career blossom. I might not have known the names of many other famous actors, but I sure knew Dick Van Dyke by name. I loved him!

I am happy to say that after reading his memoir, I am still a big fan. While I do think that success had an impact on him, and affected some of his relationships, overall, he’s a positive person, down to earth in a way that is rare for celebrities, and I have tremendous respect for him because he kept his on-screen persona clean- mostly family friendly, devoid of explicit content or violence.

Dick’s life has been a series of lucky breaks, and he mostly has solid family and professional relationships- he didn’t escape trials, or tragedy. Still, overall, he has a contagious positivity which made this book a pleasure to read.

Dick has lived an extraordinary life- but it wasn’t all due to luck. Still, I like his attitude, and will always have fond memories of him entertaining me as a child, and my own children as well.
This memoir, as of this writing, is already a decade old. I only discovered it recently, though, for some reason. It seems Dick has kept his promise to keep busy, stay active, continue to work and enjoy life, and it looks as though he’s done just that. He’s working his way toward the century mark, and I hope he makes it there!
