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".

When Hardwicke died, his money was so eaten up by hospital expenses incurred during his final illness that there was no money left to pay for a funeral. Several actors' funds, in honor of his long, distinguished career, donated the money.

Was nominated for Broadway's 1959 Tony Award as Best Actor (Dramatic) for "A Majority of One."
