Hardy wrote the screenplay for World For Ransom (1953) for Robert Aldrich. It was subsequently altered, to Hardy's extreme displeasure. He also wrote various television scripts for Fireside Theatre and others in Hollywood.
In some sources, the film is credited or co-credited to Hugo Butler, an American script-writer who was blacklisted during the period and unable to write under his own name. Since 1997, Butler has been posthumously granted credits on the films he wrote pseudonymously during his period as a blacklistee, leading to some debate about the degree of involvement of other writers in films such as World for Ransom.
Love is a Ball, a feature film, was adapted from Knave of Hearts and The Grand Duke & Mr Pimm, but not by Hardy. It was released in 1963, and then in the U.K. as All This and Money Too.
Other works by Hardy have been translated into Turkish but their original titles have not been verified:
