Earle Harry Hagen was an American composer who created music for movies and television. His best-known TV themes include those for Make Room for Daddy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, I Spy, That Girl and The Mod Squad. According to Hagen, The Andy Griffith Show called for “a simple tune,” so that’s what they delivered. He says it was written in about 15 minutes. Hagen did the famous whistling.
Hogan’s Heroes (1965)
Johann Banner, was an Austrian-born American actor, best known for his role as Sergeant Schultz in the situation comedy Hogan’s Heroes (1965–1971). Schultz, constantly encountering evidence that the inmates of his stalag were planning mayhem, frequently feigned ignorance with the catchphrase, “I see nothing! I hear nothing! I know nothing!” (or, more commonly as the series went on, “I know nothing, nothing!“).
AKA Auric Goldfinger
Tall, portly built German born actor (and talented violinist) who notched up over 100 film appearances, predominantly in German-language productions. He will forever be remembered by Western audiences as the bombastic megalomaniac “Auric Goldfinger” trying to kill Sean Connery and irradiate the vast US gold reserves within Fort Knox in the spectacular “James Bond” film Goldfinger (1964). However, due to Fröbe’s thick German accent, his voice was actually dubbed by English actor, Michael Collins.
