About Dick Van Dyke Dick Van Dyke was born on December 13, 1925 in West Plains, Missouri Dick Van Dyke is best known for his successful series The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-66) and Diagnosis Murder (1993-2001). A song-and-dance man who got his start in radio, Van Dyke was a hit in both the Broadway and Hollywood versions of the musical Bye Bye Birdie (1960 and 1963), and co-starred in the Walt Disney film Mary Poppins (1964). For The Dick Van Dyke Show, Van Dyke won three consecutive Emmys and secured his place in the history of American television (Mary Tyler Moore played his wife). Known mostly for light comedy in films and on TV, Van Dyke has also proven himself a capable dramatic actor in The Comic (1969, later known as Billy Bright) and The Morning After (1974). His other films include Fitzwilly (1967), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968, based on the book by Ian Fleming), Dick Tracy (1990) and Night at the Museum (2006, starring Ben Stiller). The Dick Van Dyke Show was set in New Rochelle, New York; Van Dyke and Moore's characters were Rob and Laura Petrie... Early in the 1980s he began a long romantic relationship with Michelle Triola Marvin, previously known for her unsuccessful 1970s palimony suit against actor Lee Marvin.

About Mary Tyler Moore Mary Tyler Moore was born Decembwe 29, 1936 in Brooklyn, NY. Although she began her career as a dancer, Moore's success came on with television, first as the secretary on Richard Diamond, Private Detective (1959), then as the costar of The Dick Van Dyke Show(1961-66), and finally with The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-77), the first to center on an unmarried and happy career woman. In 1970, with her then husband Grant Tinker, she formed MTM productions, which produced other successful television comedies. She appeared on Broadway in Whose Life Is It Anyway? (1980) and in the film Ordinary People (1980).

About Bob Crane Bob Crane was born July 13, 1928 in Watwrbuey, CT and died tragically, victim of homicide on June 29, 1978. Crane starred on the hit 1960's sitcom Hogan's Heroes, also seen here on Oldies Television, which ran in prime time from 1965 to 1971. The show was set in a World War II prisoner of war camp in Germany; Crane played Colonel Robert Hogan, a crafty POW leader who constantly outwitted his bumbling Nazi guards. (The cast included Richard Dawson as a British POW and John Banner as the buffoonish Sergeant Schultz.) Crane is also notorious for his mysterious death in Scottsdale, Arizona on 29 June 1978. Crane was found bludgeoned to death in his own motel room, and investigations revealed that Crane had a racy personal life which included a habit of videotaping his encounters with various women. Crane's friend John Carpenter (no relation to the movie director by that name) was later tried for the crime but found not guilty, and the murder remains officially unsolved.
