    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.

    "My Lucky Life (1000 Character Review)"
    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    From the recollection of the events in his professional life -- behind the scenes of The Dick Van Dyke Show, stories of meeting Walt Disney while filming Marry Poppins, and even the surprisingly negative experience filming Chitty Chitty Bang Bang -- to the interests and struggles of his personal life -- his (nearly lifelong) struggle with alcoholism, a brief encounter he had with the mob, a marital affair and the subsequent break down of his marriage, the falling out he had with the church, and his later-life love of computer graphics and 'harmonizing' with friends at children's hospitals -- there are few who wouldn't find his stories interesting, inspiring and amusing.

    In my favorite moment, he describes the slight smile of 15 year old, cancer stricken boy, to weak to even sit up, after a bedside performance of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious as the greatest applause he had ever received.

    For fans of the versatile performer, My Lucky Life will thoroughly delight.
