COR BLIMEY — IT’S DICK VAN DYKE!

Scottish Daily Mail - - Weekender -

HIS Cockney ac­cent as Bert the chim­ney sweep has gone down in movie his­tory for all the wrong rea­sons.

But in the first film Dick Van Dyke also played dod­dery banker Mr Dawes Sr. Now the 92-year-old star comes as close as he can to repris­ing the role, play­ing Mr Dawes’s son (left), who is a sim­i­lar age.

Van Dyke spent two days on the set of the film, of­ten bring­ing cast mem­bers to tears by singing snip­pets of the orig­i­nal songs.
