Words of wisdom, opinion, and lessons learned, like this, my favorite: You can spread jelly on the peanut better but you can’t spread peanut butter on the jelly. It’s the kind of book that I want from me. It covers my sixty-plus years in show business, including my starring roles in The Dick Van Dyke Show and Mary Poppins, two projects that have withstood the test of time and will, I am proud to say, likely go on entertaining future generations.
I attribute a lot of it to luck- to being the right person in the right place at the right time.
