Van Dyke saved by dolphins
The movie veteran was a keen longboarder in his youth, but one exhausting day at the beach made him think twice about his water hobby.
The Chitty Chitty Bang Bang star recalls, "I woke up out of sight of land... and I started paddling with the swells and I started seeing fins swimming around me and I thought, 'I'm dead!'
"They turned out to be porpoises (and) they pushed me all the way to shore. I'm not kidding."
