One of the best biographies I have ever seen and I have watched a fair number of them. The reason is, I was enthralled. I have never, ever seen a Hollywood actor that had a more interesting life and/or such a long, illustrious career as Dick Van Patten has. Most people, if they know him at all, only know him as Mr. Bradford in Eight is Enough, the 1970s show that charmed TV audiences. Or, if you are a Walt Disney buff, he was featured in a comedic role in many live-action 1970s movies, such as Gus, Freaky Friday or The Strongest Man in the World.
Continuing the tradition of comedic roles in later movies, we watched him in Spaceballs and Robin Hood: Men in Tights. As always, he has had a comedic talent unsurpassed by many an actor.
If you ever get a chance to see this bio, you will be fascinated. I had no idea he was such an interesting person and has done so many things across the years. Great little film about him!
