Jerry Van Dyke


Born - 27 July 1931, Danville, Illinois, USA
Died - 5 January 2018

Unmistakeably the (younger) brother of the more famous Dick Van Dyke, the brown-haired, lantern-jawed Jerry began life as a banjo-playing comedian. Initially a nightclub entertainer, he moved into comic character roles on TV at the beginning of the 1960s, and a few films followed: The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963), Palm Springs Weekend (1963), McLintock! (1964), Love and Kisses (1965) and Angel in My Pocket (1969), before TV work dominated his CV. Decades later, there was a little more film work: Death Blow: A Cry for Justice (1986), Run If You Can (1988) and Moon Ring (2010), his last. His daughter Kelly Van Dyke, who made soft-porn films as Nancee Kelly, hanged herself at 33.
