Dick Van Dyke is one of the most famous actors of all time. His biggest accomplishments include The Dick Van Dyke Show (of course), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and Bye Bye Birdie.
But the one film not mentioned is a classic that will never be forgotten. It’s forever frozen in the minds of thousands as their favorite childhood movie: Marry Poppins.
Who could forget the spunky, clever and charismatic Bert, played by Mr. Van Dyke? Other than jumping from chimney to chimney, dancing is the other hit of the energetic setting.
He probably couldn’t be doing that roof hopping and tap dancing because the beloved actor has just turned 90! What better way to celebrate his existence than with a tribute to Mary Poppins… a Mary Poppins flash mob to be exact. It happened at the Grove in Los Angeles with the help of Disney Examiner and lots of great fans.
The surprise birthday gift was an incredible success and so much fun for everyone involved! Not to mention Dick – his face is absolutely priceless! “I am very grateful that at 90 years old, I can still go out and play!”
