Dirk Bogarde Facts
For a time in the 1950s, Bogarde was promoted as "The British Rock Hudson", despite the fact that he was actually Dutch and stood considerably shorter than the 6'4" American star.

Following the death of his partner Anthony Forwood in 1988, he moved into an apartment at 2 Cadogan Gardens in London, where he remained until his death.

He was a close friend of Rex Harrison, whom he named as the actor who had influenced him most in a 1963 interview with the BBC. In 1958 Bogarde provided a video message praising Harrison when the musical "My Fair Lady" transferred from Broadway to London.
