Cedric Hardwicke Facts
When Hardwicke was knighted in 1934, the hard-of-hearing King George V, after being prompted by a courtier, announced after dubbing the kneeling actor: "Rise, Sir Cedric Pickwick".

His hometown of Lye, is also home to independent filmmaker Dave James.

Hardwicke was a favorite of George Bernard Shaw, having made notable appearances in the playwright's "The Apple Cart," "Too True To Be Good," and "Caesar and Cleopatra (1945)." Shaw initially referred to Hardwicke as his fifth favorite actor, the other four being the Marx Brothers. Later, he referred to him as his fourth favorite actor, presumably after Zeppo retired from the act.
