Did You Know?
[on Dick Van Dyke
] Dick is a very clever comic, very talented, he does resemble me facially but thats about all, firstly, he is much taller and his mannerisms are entirely his own style. I enjoyed very much meeting him, a very interesting chap.
Like his comedy partner Oliver Hardy, Stan Laurel was astounded at how popular they were when they arrived in England in 1932. In scenes resembling Beatlemania 30 years later, the comedy team were surrounded by screaming crowds everywhere they went. At one stage, someone tugged on a door of their limousine until it nearly came off.
Wide, "hanger-in-my-mouth" smile, spiky hair sported in all of his films, and of course, the "whiny face" for which he is famous.
