Dick Van Dyke Net Worth $30 Million

Dick was born into a religious family of salesman Loren Wayne Van Dyke and stenographer Hazel Victoria. Growing up in Danville, Illinois, Van Dyke was thinking of becoming a minister, but his high school’s drama classes actually made him change his mind. It was then that he started to work on his acting and singing abilities. At that time he already knew he was going to work in the entertainment industry.

In 1942 Van Dyke was a part of the Air Force of United States, then being transferred to the special services division. It was already a small start to his career, as he was performing in various shows and on the radio. His real breakdown took place in the 1960s when “The Dick Van Dyke Show” was presented on TV. Being easy to watch, this humorous comedy series soon won the benevolence of the audience, making Dick popular enough to successfully continue his career. This was a useful start to his net worth.

His acting curriculum might be few pages long. Dick has starred in a total of 22 films and dozens of popular TV shows. Among the most famous movies which he has appeared in are “Bye Bye Birdie”, “Mary Poppins”, “The Art of Love” and finally “Night at the Museum”. Van Dyke often jokes that he can’t actually retire, as he has tried to finish his career many times, but he always came back. Of course, his net worth increased each time.

Not to mention Dick’s successes as a writer and singer; he has published four books so far, with the last one showing up in 2011. Being always keen on singing, Van Dyke has also released six albums from 1960 to 2010. These also added to his net worth.

Dick Van Dyke is also the proud owner of various awards and nominations received during his career in the entertainment industry. Among the most honored awards are a Tony, one Grammy and five Emmys. In 2013 Dick received a Life Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild association, one of his most important rewards. Finally, Hollywood Walk of Fame has Van Dyke’s star on it too.

These projects and achievements make it absolutely clear how he made it through to become a millionaire. Dick Van Dyke was a success from the beginning: despite some downs connected to financial questions, alcohol problems and some health issues, he managed to build a career every beginner in the field dreams of.

In his personal life, Dick Van Dyke has always been quite private. He was first married to Margie Willett. They made it through different ups and downs together, including a period of poverty, and their marriage lasted for 36 years until they divorced in 1984. The couple has four children, with their second son Barry Van Dyke being also an actor, often working with his father. Dick was then involved in a long-term relationship with Michelle Triola, which lasted for almost 30 years until the death of Michele in 2009. In 2012, Dick married his second wife Arlene Silver.

77Although highly praised for his dancing in Mary Poppins (1964) and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968), Van Dyke was never trained as a dancer and did not begin dancing until he was in his thirties.
78By the late 1980s, it seemed that Van Dyke's career was over. However, his acclaimed performance as the District Attorney in Dick Tracy (1990) led to Diagnosis Murder (1993), which proved to be a big television comeback for the 67-year-old star.

Quotes

1It took Walt twenty years to talk Travers [P.L. Travers, author of the Mary Poppins novels] into giving him the rights for the picture and then she fought him tooth and nail all the way through it. She hated me, she hated Julie Andrews, she didn't think either one of us were right. After the premiere she met Walt in the lobby and said, 'All the animation has to go.' Walt said, 'Pamela, the boat has sailed.'
2I was an alcoholic for about twenty-five years. In the Fifties and Sixties, everybody had their martini, everybody smoked incessantly. The funny thing is that all through my twenties and early thirties I didn't drink at all. Then we moved to a neighborhood full of young families with the same age kids and everyone drank heavily, there were big parties every night. I would go to work with terrible hangovers which if you're dancing is really hard. I was in deep trouble, you get suicidal and think you just can't go on. I had suicidal feelings, it was just terrible. But then suddenly, like a blessing, the drink started not to taste good. I would feel a little dizzy and a little nauseous and I wasn't getting the click. Today I wouldn't want a drink for anything. But I do occasionally think of taking a nice drag. I've been on this gum for ten years and it's just as addictive but at least it's not hurting my lungs. (2013)
3My whole generation has disappeared on me. My contemporaries, not in talent but in age, were Paul Newman, Jack Lemmon, Rock Hudson. All gone.
4[on turning down The Omen (1976)] My god, that was stupid. Gregory Peck got the part, but at that time there was a lot of violence in it - people impaled on things. I was pretty puritan at the time, a goody-two-shoes, I felt I'd put myself in a position where the audience trusted me. I turned down several things for that reason - either taste or violence or sex or something.
5People from the UK love to tease me. I invented a whole new dialect. I never could do a British accent, not even in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968).
6It's quite hard to act yourself all the time. My first wife, Margie, used to say she could see no difference between Rob [the husband he played on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) for five years] and me. She said 'You're not acting. You are exactly the same on screen as you are at home.'
7I was a Laurel & Hardy nut. I got to know Laurel at the end of his life and it was a great thrill for me. He left me his bow tie and derby and told me that if they ever made a movie about him, he'd want me to play him.
8I've found a home here because actors have always said, 'He's really a dancer', and dancers said, 'No, no he's a singer', and singers said, 'No I think he's an actor.' I don't know, I was never that good at anything but I did a little bit of it all. I've never studied dancing but I've always loved to dance. I never sang anywhere except the shower and it took me forever to get into the high school choir. When I auditioned for Bye Bye Birdie (1963) I did a song and a little soft-shoe and for some reason they saw I could move. And I've never studied acting - which is maybe lucky otherwise I'd just be a copy of everybody else.
9I asked Fred Astaire once when he was about my age if he still danced and he said 'Yes, but it hurts now.' That's exactly it. I can still dance too but it hurts now! I've always kept moving. I was at the gym at six this morning. Of course marrying a beautiful young woman has been a big help. There are so many years between us and we don't feel it. I'm emotionally immature and she's very wise for her age so we kind of meet in the middle.
10We had a little ranch way out in the middle of nowhere. My wife didn't like showbusiness - as most spouses don't: they get shunted aside. But it was too soon for me. I could not afford either emotionally or financially to quit and retire. Not in my forties. We finally parted company because of that. And now another forty years have gone by and I've been very busy. I still am.
11I'm really in retirement. My career is over. I'm just playing now and having a great time. I like to keep busy, and I'm doing what's fun for me.
12I think that cigarettes are worse. I think that nicotine ... I've heard heroin addicts and cocaine addicts say it was nothing compared to getting off cigarettes.
13But at the time, I thought I would come out, because there was such a strange perception about alcoholism that people had serious character flaws, you know. They had weak wills or something. They had this image of, you know, a guy laying in on the street and skid row, whereas it can happen to normal, average middle-class guy.
14It was a marvelous relaxer . . . Jack Daniels (Tennessee Whiskey) became my good friend. Then sometime in my early forties he turned on me.
15[about Mary Poppins (1964)] I thought Walt Disney hired me because I was such a great singer and dancer. As it turns out, he had heard me in an interview talking about what was happening to family entertainment. I was decrying the fact that it seemed like no holds were barred anymore in entertainment . . . That's why he called me in, because I said something he agreed with. And I got the part.
16I think it's such a shame that [Walt Disney] didn't live to see computer animation, because he would have had a good time with it . . . In those days it was before the blue screen. They used what was called yellow sulphur lighting--the screen was yellow, and we worked with that all day, and by the time the day was over you couldn't see anything . . . It was just an empty soundstage. And sometimes we didn't even have the music--we would just dance to a click rhythm. But I think technically it holds up today just as well as anything.
17In the best of all worlds the producers would take some responsibility for the kinds of things they're putting out. Unfortunately, they don't. And then I-- they keep saying we can't have our First Amendment rights abridged and we can't have censorship. Well we had it back in the Hays days [Production Code Administration, headed by 'Will H. Hays', the official Hollywood censor office], in the Johnson office days. And I think they should--maybe the American people might bring it back if things get bad enough.
18I've made peace with insecurity... because there is no security of any kind.
19I never wanted to be an actor and to this day I don't. I can't get a handle on it. An actor wants to become someone else. I am a song-and-dance man and I enjoy being myself, which is all I can do.
20I remember in the book that Caractacus was married. There was no love interest, no love story. So I think bringing Truly Scrumptious in works very well because we had assumed he was a widower. And they couldn't have picked a better Truly Scrumptious than Sally [Sally Ann Howes]. They came up with Sally Ann and I heard her voice, and it was the richest contralto. She auditioned with "The Lovely Lonely Man" and I thought, "My God, this girl is great!" and then she was stunningly beautiful. She loved those kids and they loved her, which I think comes across on the screen. They just thought a great deal of her and she spent a lot of time with them, you know, between shots - telling stories and playing games during all those long waiting periods.
21I've retired so many times now it's getting to be a habit.
