Dick Van Dyke
The Dick Van Dyke Show

Dick Van Dyke is an actor best known for his work in the films Bye Bye Birdie and Mary Poppins, as well as his television show The Dick Van Dyke Show. In The Dick Van Dyke show, Van Dyke’s on screen wife was played by Mary Tyler Moore. In this video, both Moore and Van Dyke speak to their on-screen chemistry. Moore says: “We just liked each other right from the beginning. I was, again, in awe of him. He had just come off Bye Bye Birdie the musical Broadway show, and I had been playing that music endlessly. I used to love do to that to remind me of my beginnings as a dancer, and he was a dancer – self taught. And he was so good looking. There was just right away a sense of being very happy, very safe in the talent that he shared with me, and very comfortable in the humor that we shared and appreciation for each other’s gifts.”
