German actress Friedl Hardt (1919-1991) appeared in a dozen West-German and Austrian light entertainment films of the 1950s.
Friedl Hart was born in München (Munich), Germany, in 1919. As a young girl she was in the children's ballet of the Bremer Stadttheater. A little later she performed on many operetta stages in Germany. She made her film debut as Jutta Sarris, the ‘Tiger bride’ opposite Harry Piel in the West German thriller Der Tiger Akbar/The Tiger’s Claw (Harry Piel, 1951). Next, she had a minor part as a dancer in the comedy Mikosch rückt ein/Mikosch Comes In (Johann Alexander Hübler-Kahla, 1952), starring Georg Thomalla, Willy Fritsch and Paul Hörbiger, and a supporting part in the Austrian musical Hab’ ich nur Deine Liebe/If I only have your love (Eduard von Borsody, 1953) with Johannes Heesters. Then followed a co-starring role in the Austrian-German crime film Die Todesarena/Arena of Death (Kurt Meisel, 1953) opposite Richard Häussler and Katharina Mayberg.
In the comedy Hurra - ein Junge/Hooray, It's a Boy! (Ernst Marischka, Georg Jacoby, 1953), Friedl Hardt played the supporting part of chambermaid Anni. The comedy, which stars Walter Müller, Theo Lingen and Ingrid Lutz, is one of several film adaptations of the 1926 play of the same name. It was one of a series of remakes made during the 1950s of major hits during the Weimar and Nazi eras. Another example is the musical Die Drei von der Tankstelle/The Three from the Filling Station (Hans Wolff, 1955) in which Adrian Hoven, Walter Müller and Walter Giller play three young men who go to work at a filling station after losing all their money. Hardt played a bit part as one of their customers at the tank station. Hardt also appeared in the French, alternate-language version of Die Drei von der Tankstelle (1955), Le chemin du paradis (Willi Forst, Hans Wolff, 1956) starring Georges Guétary. She had another small part in the musical Liebe ist ja nur ein Märchen/Love Is Just a Fairytale (Arthur Maria Rabenalt, 1955) with Willy Fritsch, Georges Guétary and Claude Farell. Later followed minor roles in films like the German Heimatfilm Ja, ja, die Liebe in Tirol/Yes, yes, love in Tyrol (Géza von Bolváry, 1955), based on Ernst Lubitsch’s classic Kohlhiesels Töchter/Kohlhiesel's Daughters (1920). In her last film appearance, she played a bar lady in Drei Mann auf einem Pferd/Three Men on a Horse (Kurt Meisel, 1957) with Nadja Tiller and Walter Giller. Friedl Hardt passed away in 1991 in her homeplace Münich. She was 72.
