Mary Tyler Moore cemented her status as one of the great television actresses of all time with two timeless hits: “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show." 

Moore was born in 1936 in Brooklyn Heights, but her family moved to Los Angeles when she was 8 years old. As a teenager, she aspired to be a dancer and appeared in several commercials at the beginning of her career.
