Did You Know?


The casting of Richard Denning as Edgar Hamilton was an interesting one, as at that time he was well known for playing the Governor of Hawaii in the TV show Hawaii Five-O. However, since he was already a resident of Hawaii, he was cheaper to hire than anyone else, since there would be no additional cost of paying his transportation from the mainland or hotel expenses.

Kate: [to Clifford, who has just learned McCloud is on the plane with him - traveling first-class, no less] Would you like some more champagne?

Aloha McCloud
9 January 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This McCloud story finds Chief Clifford getting a trip to Hawaii before he's to testify at a mob trial. He's pretty put out though when he finds out that Dennis Weaver's old department in Taos, New Mexico have put him up for the police convention in Hawaii, the same one that J.D. Cannon is going to. And Weaver's flying first class.

But Cannon is very happy to have McCloud along on this trip. Someone sets him up for the murder of a girl found on the beach. Turns out that Cannon has some history in Hawaii, a wartime romance with Martha Hyer now married to Richard Denning who is a most jealous man.

It's a team effort that helps clear Clifford with fellow police officer Louise Latham and Hawaiian homicide cop Nelphi Hannemann. Wonder why McGarrett and the Five-0 bunch weren't on this. Also did someone forget that Richard Denning was also the Governor of Hawaii in Hawaii Five-0?

Couldn't have a Hawaiian story without Don Ho who plays a Don Ho like entertainer. In fact Hawaii is so beautiful you can't make a bad film or television program there, this one no exception.
