Hardie Albright (December 16, 1903 – December 7, 1975) was an American actor.
Born Hardie Hunter Albrecht to traveling vaudeville performers, he made his stage debut in one of his parents' acts at the age of seven.
Albright was playing the juvenile lead on the stage in The Greeks when a scout from the Fox Company saw him. He was given a contract and headed for Hollywood. An alumnus of Carnegie Tech, Albright made his film debut in 1931 in John G. Blystone's Young Sinners and appeared in numerous films. He provided the (uncredited) voice of the adolescent Bambi in the Disney film of the same name. He also became a noted Broadway actor.
He retired from film acting in 1948 and became a drama instructor at the University of Southern California, writing several books on acting and directing during his time there.
On December 7, 1975, just nine days shy of his 72nd birthday, Albright died from congestive heart failure in Mission Viejo, California. His ashes were sprinkled at his former vacation site in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He was survived by his daughter Victoria from his first marriage to wife Martha Sleeper.
