You are welcome, Kanela and Steve's Girl.

I'm still looking for Cadillacs, too! Four more seasons to review! LOL

The Cadillac seen in "Elegy in a Rain Forest" (Season 9) is in a junk yard. How sad it looks! I hope someone rescued and restored it.

I agree with you, Kanela. Thank you for those links, H50.

On "Ready, aim..."  Aren't you a fan of fast cars, H50!  (Chuckle).

What a lovely idea, Honu, thank you for that.

And thank you, Kanela, for the Irish proverb. How true it is. How often  we can't see what is right for ourselves but can advise others.

Honu sent this little ditty to commemorate St. Patrick's Day:




Danny Boy

(With apologies to Frederic Edward Weatherly)

Oh Danny Boy, your boss, your boss is calling:

‘Tis time to go; we've got a brand new case.

Big Chicken's out and threatening the governor;

We're needed now outside of Washington Place.

But don't forget he also has it in for you,

He vowed revenge when he was in the pen.

I'll have your back, as always, when we take him down.

So, Danno, please, oh Danno please, stay safe 'til then.

But if you come and HPD's already there

You'll know that Chick's made good upon his threat.

I must protect Paul Jameson at any cost

Even if I die before the sun does set.

If things go wrong, I must make sure to let you know

Before you come, whate'er may be my fate:

You've been the best right hand that I could ever want

Oh Danno, Five-O's yours, so please protect this state.

But if we win and Chicken ends up back in jail,

And we survive to fight another foe.

It's back to work for us and Chin and Kono, too

To file reports, our statements, as you know.

Then we'll kick back, enjoy a little leisure time.

Me, I'll go sailing, you can surf a wave.

'Cuz all too soon, somewhere will be another crime,

So Danno, have some fun, but please don't misbehave.

For Jack : A man is often a bad adviser to himself and a good adviser to another - Irish proverb  Happy Saint Patrick's day Jack. You were hard on yourself , but always a helper and advisor to others! We miss you.

Here is another possible reason why Jack drove his 1969 (or 1970) Sedan DeVille for nearly thirty years. Price! A 2017 Cadillac CT-6 (as close to the Sedan DeVille as Cadillac makes today) costs $63,500 on the mainland, yet $88,500 in Honolulu. We know shipping adds to the cost of everything, but this is ridiculous! If one of us were to ship our car to Honolulu, we would pay in the neighborhood of $1,000, not $25,000. So, yes, Jack probably decided he could make a lot of repairs to the old Caddy before he came close to paying what shipping, alone, would cost on a new car.

I doubt it. "Twenty-Four Karat Kill" was in Season 1, while Tony Alika (Ross Martin) put in his first appearance in Season 11's "Number One With a Bullet." In "Let Death Do Us Part" (Season 9), Alika is the name of the beauty salon where Claudine Hessler (Linda Ryan) restyles Jim Spier's (Jack Kelly) hair.

Thank you, H5O!  I remember watching that episode, seeing the name of the boat and wondering if it had anything to do with Tony Alika.

Oh, you're sharp, Honu! I hoped I'd found one to stymie the best of 'em. LOL

The name "Alika" was in the season one episode "Twenty-Four Karat Kill."   It was the name of the fishing boat that was part of the scheme for smuggling gold bars.

In which episode did the name Alika first appear?

Thank you, Jean, for letting me know that your friend from Sweden likes RJL and is learning about him from it.

Gary Cooper was not in "The Hangman." The two movies in which Jack appeared with Coop were "The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell" and "Man of the West." The marshal in "The Hangman" was Robert Taylor. Yes, Jack was blond in that movie. No, he was not killed.

I have a feeling Miss Fisher's murder mysteries is on here, I'm sure I saw it on the tv menu. Yes I do think the man looks lie young Jack.

i bought the film 'The Hangman' last night on my ipad. Another one with Gary Cooper, as you have mentioned, Jack admired Cooper very much.I just hope it's not another one where the character gets killed. He has his hair blonde in this one it and looks gorgeous even in back and white. I will let you know what I think.

Well done H50. I also can't believe how long RJL has been going. I have recommended it to another  lady who is a passionate fan. She is from Sweden and there is not a lot of info about Jack there. She thinks your site is wonderful and is reading everything she can find about him. She only has a few DVDs. So hasn't seen all episodes. I told her there are many later ones on the site called daily motion. So she going through them..

We once answered a question on here, what famous film star would we choose  to star opposite Jack. I chose Charlton Heston. I saw a fairly old film with him in last week. I was surprised at how much he resembled Jack. His build and features were very much alike. Particularly one scene when he was quite angry and his eyes were wide open and he tilted his head just the way Steve did.  I didnt have  time to record it as I would like to have taken a still shot to oompare.
