John Banner Quotes:- John Banner (born 28 January 1910 – 28 January 1973) was an Austrian-born American film and television actor. He is 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.
The banner was born to Jewish parents in Stanislav, Austria-Hungary (now Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine). He studied for a law degree at the University of Vienna but decided instead to become an actor. Banner emigrated to the United States, where he rapidly learned English.
The banner appeared on Broadway three times — in a musical revue called From Vienna, which ran for two months in 1939; and in two comic plays, Pastoral, in which he had a leading role.
The banner appeared in over 40 feature films. His first credited role was a German captain in Once Upon a Honeymoon (1942), starring Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers.

I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing!
Schultz is not a Nazi. I see Schultz as the representative of some kind of goodness in any generation.
