Dick Van Dyke's TV shows and films are loved by so many, and watched and rewatched so many times, that they named the DVD after him. His 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is being rereleased in November and his musical memoir Step in Time premieres in Los Angeles in December.

We've invited Dick Van Dyke to play a game called "Dick van Dyke, meet Dick, van and dyke."  Dick. Van. Dyke. Together, it's an iconic name in entertainment, but separated into its component words, it's a three-question Not My Job quiz.
