Janel’s #CBR4 Review 39 My Lucky Life In & Out Of Show Business by Dick Van Dyke
This book was the third entertainment industry memoir I read over a few months. I’ve been a fan of Dick Van Dyke, but I didn’t know that he got his start in radio. I was also surprised to learn that Dick decided early on in his career that he would only do films that his kids could see. It is impressive that Dick continued to reinvent himself through the different characters and opportunities he got over the years. Dick’s life was perfect as he cheated on his wife and was an alcoholic. Even so this book provides a good insider look into Hollywood and how one actor found his place there.
