In 1963, Dick Van Dyke made his film debut in the movie, Bye Bye Birdie. From here he followed up his film acting work with further appearances in movies such as What a Way to Go!Mary Poppins, and The Art of Love.

As his career developed, Van Dyke became a beloved actor, who audiences loved seeing on screen. Not all of his parts were major ones, and not all of his films were hits, but fans watched regardless and he built up a sizeable portfolio of pictures, alongside various television roles too.

But how familiar are you with Dick Van Dyke’s back catalogue of movies? If you were asked to name them all what would you say?
