The entertainment icon was presented with three different dance routines, and Dick selected the toughest to prove he could do it.

“He gave me three versions, and I took the hardest. I said, “I want that,” he recalls.

Aside from the highlights of his career, Dick also reflected on some of the more difficult parts of his life, including revealing that he was a recovering alcoholic.

The actor revealed his struggles on The Dick Cavett Show in 1974, an era when such topics were difficult to discuss in public.

“I had friends who said, ‘You’re crazy,'” Dick said. “But it seemed to help a lot of people, I got a lot of mail from people saying, ‘If you can do it, so can I.'”

Still blooming!  “So all the old guys out there, listen to me.  I'm telling you, you can go on… I'm still dancing and singing!'
