We are allowed to see Jack's true nature

Perhaps, we saw the true Jack Lord in the Hawaii Five-0 episode "When Does a War End?" (Season 10). Near the end, McGarrett and Danno had just arrested Alicia Wade (Anne Francis) and Willie Barker (David Dukes) for the attempted murder of Yuhio and Nancy Muromoto (Bennett Ohto and Donna Benz) when the reporter Joe Boyd (Joshua Bryant) came on the scene. He and McGarrett ad-libbed the following discussion about when all wars will end. Jack was exhibiting stron...

The Case of the Missing Sedan DeVille

Jack reached a stopping point in his painting to find the apartment unusually quiet. At first, he thought Marie might be taking a nap, but the hands on the clock told him that it was after 4:00. She always was up by 3:00. Sure enough, as he looked in t...

McGarrett's Aloha Shirts

Posted by H5O 1.0 FOREVER on November 9, 2017 at 5:55 PM Comments comments (3)

Steve's Girl presented a challenge to post our favorites of McGarrett's aloha shirts. But McGarrett wasn't the only fan of the brightly colored shirts. So was Jack, who wore them in his personal life and for publicity photo shoots. 

Here are the ones that the members posted for the challenge:

"The Loner"

So, professional photographer Richard Drake took a photograph of a seagull / tern against a bright orange sky. In it, the seagull / tern looked black, but it made me think of Jack's painting, "The Loner."  I won't post Richard's photograph, since he sells his work, but here's Jack's painting in case you aren't familiar with it.

La Ronde Restaurant, Honolulu

Here are two pictures that C took from our lanai at the Ilikai. We were on the 24th floor, I believe. You can see La Ronde between the railings.

The second picture shows Ala Moana Center, Blaisdell Center, and even a corner of the state capitol building.

Seen in a Facebook Video

This scene appeared in a video posted by a man who was contacted by Joel from Liberia. Initially, the man thought Joel intended to scam him; however, as they wrote back and forth, he stumbled upon an opportunity to help Joel and his village in a way he never expected. It is a beautiful story from which both men and Joel's village in Liber...

"Give me the name and code name . . ."

Jack’s character gave up the names of agents in two productions in which he appeared.

* In The Man from UNCLE / The Master’s Touch (NBC, 1967), he portrayed the Thrush agent, Mandor, who gave UNCLE the names of two agents, Menden in London and Kossof in Moscow. There was a third agent, but Mandor died before he could give his name or location.

* In Hawaii Five-0 / Cocoon (C...

An interesting article, Jack Lord – I Don’t Care! by Debbie Fitzgerald, appeared some years ago on Annette Nixon’s website, the Hawaii Five-0 Fan Club. I think she describes a lot of us.

I watched "Barefoot in the Park" (Paramount Pictures, 1967) on Netflix this morning. It has been one of my favorite movies since it first came out, although I had not seen it in quite some time. I thoroughly enjoyed it and laughed all the way through.

It stars Robert Redford and Jane Fonda as newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter as they set up housekeeping in a six-storey walkup in Greenwich Village. Paul is just out of law school and is star...

Where Have All the Great Men Gone?

Posted by H5O 1.0 FOREVER on August 18, 2017 at 6:20 PM Comments comments (3)

Where have all the great men gone? Not the doctors, lawyers, and Indian chiefs, but the men who lived good lives, helping others whenever the opportunity to do so arose.

Where are the Ronald Reagans, who so easily made friends with adversaries that he could change the world in but eight years? Where are the Glen Campbells, who could crack wise with a gentleness that put us all at ease? Where are the Mother Teresas, who gave up everything ...

World War II Dentist : Lt Gilbert Steingart USN

Posted by H5O 1.0 FOREVER on July 4, 2017 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Linda Steingart Frumkes is posting all of more than 500 letters that her father, Navy dentist Gilbert Steingart, wrote to her mother while he was stationed in the Pacific during World War II. I have been following them as she posts one letter each day, and they are fascinating!

Some of the letters really tug at the heartstrings, such as when Gil’s comments make reference to his wife’s missing him so badly that she...

A Loss of Scruples

Posted by H5O 1.0 FOREVER on June 25, 2017 at 11:25 AM Comments comments (1)

News came down from the CIA yesterday about an increase in the leak of intelligence. It seems that leaking classified information has become the latest fad. I knew 20 years ago, when people claimed it wasn't doing something wrong that mattered, it was doing something wrong and getting caught that mattered, that we were headed for trouble. Have people become so insensitive -- or unaware -- that they can't see how destructive this "fad" has the potential of being?

A victim of the apartment building fire in London last week was the Tate Gallery’s youngest exhibitor. One of her works is especially moving to those left behind and seems as though it may well become a memorial to those lost in the tragic event.

Living on a Sailboat

Posted by H5O 1.0 FOREVER on June 2, 2017 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)

So, I was thinking about the scene from "You Don't See Many Pirates These Days" (Season 10) in which McGarrett is repairing a sail on his sailboat when Danno drives up and tells him he has a call from Jonathan Kaye. He says he needs to duck below and change clothes. It occurred to me that he might live (at least, part of the time) on his boat.

I began wondering what living on a sailboat would be like. I read several articles written by co...

Clyde Kusatsu

I just saw Clyde Kusatsu portraying a judge on an episode of JAG entitled "JAG TV." Actually, he appeared on two episodes of JAG.

When I looked him up on IMDb, I was surprised to learn that he appeared in only one episode of Hawaii Five-0. His face is so familiar that I was certain that he had been one of our beloved semi-regulars. But, no! He appeared only as Jerry Quan, the unfortunate boyfriend of ...
