Hardy Kruger was born Eberhard August Franz Ewald Krüger, but quite early on, while learning the trade in the provinces, the aspiring actor already shortened the old fashioned Eberhard, and when, years later, Roy Baker found it hard to pronounce the two dots over the U, Hardy told him “not to worry, just drop ’em." From that moment on, he was known as Hardy Kruger – on Broadway, in London, Paris, Moscow, Hollywood, and at his farm in Africa as well. It was only in his native Germany that the two dots were kept.
