Cedric Hardwicke's quotes

  • I can't act. I have never acted. And I shall never act. What I can do is suspend my audience's power of judgement till I've finished.
  • I believe that God felt sorry for actors, so he created Hollywood to give them a place in the sun and a swimming pool--the price they had to pay was to surrender their talent.
  • Actors and burglars work better at night.
  • England is my wife. America is my mistress. It is very good sometimes to get away from one's wife.
  • [on TV commercials] The last refuge of optimism in a world of gloom.
  • By temperament, a young actor needs to be mercurial, if nothing else, able to shed misfortunes like a duck shedding water and to magnify a pinpoint of hope into a golden dawn.
  • Actors must practice restraint else think what might happen in a love scene.
  • When actors are talking, they are servants of the dramatist. It is what they can show the audience when they are not talking that reveals the fine actor.
  • My aim is to leave the theater and the screen better than I found them.
  • I want to be one of those reformers. I am content to makes a virtue of necessity and modestly disclaim my desire to be a great reformer. I am resigned to be one of the myriad little ones; but I propose to be a very good little one.
  • [on his role in Sentimental Journey (1946)] I did nothing but look at the handsome bosom of Maureen O'Hara and listen to the murmuring of her heart through a stethoscope.
  • Hollywood may be thickly populated, but to me it's still a bewilderness.
  • [on his role as Pharaoh Sethi in The Ten Commandments (1956)] It was a very great pleasure to play it. And, of course, it was a very great privilege to work with Mr. DeMille [Cecil B. DeMille], who really was dedicated to this particular picture.
