Hawaii Five-O

leonard richard freeman kam

(CBS, 9/20/1968, 120 mins). Special law officer Steve McGarrett tracks down Red Chinese operatives and their spy ring in Honolulu in this realistic pilot for the long-running series that premiered one week after the telefeature and was one of the top-rated weekly shows for more than a decade. Jack Lord became a major TV personality and Khigh Dhiegh turned up frequently to re-create his role as McGarrett’s longtime nemesis, Wo Fat. Tim O’Kelly and veteran actor Lew Ayres relinquished their original parts to James MacArthur and Richard Denning, respectively, while Kam Fong and Zulu remained with the original cast for a number of years.
