‘Hawaii Five-O’ cast reunites to fete 3-0

Fans, cast, crew convene to celebrate cop show's anni

HONOLULU — “Hawaii Five-0” fans, cast and crew members and Marie Lord, widow of the show’s star, Jack Lord, will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the cop show on Jan. 22 at the Hawaii Film Studio at Diamond Head. The celebration is a year and a day after Jack Lord’s death in Hawaii.

It will mark a rare public appearance for Marie Lord. Other attendees will include James MacArthur, who played Danno, Kam Fong, who played Chin Ho Kelly, Zulu and Gov. Ben Cayetano.

Several family members of deceased actor Richard Denning, who played Hawaii’s governor in the show, will also attend, said Carey Anderson, organizer of the event which will be held in the soundstage where the series was filmed.

The lead cast members will be given commemorative sterling silver “Five-0” badges.

Sept. 20, 1998, marked the 30th anniversary of the broadcast of the “Five-0” pilot episode, “Cocoon.” The regular series de-buted on Sept. 26, 1968.

“Hawaii Five-0” aired until April 1980. With few exceptions, it was filmed entirely on location in Hawaii. Jack Lord played Steve McGarrett, head of an elite four-man state police unit investigating organized crime. The privately funded event is a benefit for the Variety School of Hawaii, one of Jack Lord’s favorite charities.
