High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - February 24, 1974, High Point, North Carolina High Point Enterprise sunday february 24,1974 17b what s go ing on High Point Art Guild show to open March 8 Jack lord prepares to direct Hawaii five of segment lord s ego controversial by Jerky Buck associated press writer los Angeles a six years ago. Jack lord confidently predicted a this show is going to make it. I Don t see How it can before that first season in 1968 was half Over lord nearly had to eat those words. Quot Hawaii five of was going Down the tube. But at Christmas time. Lbs pulled a schedule sleight off hand. It switched the show from thursday where it was being slaughtered by to wednesday. There it killed off the opposition. Burt Reynolds a Dan and the rest is ratings history. Lbs has since moved the series to tuesday. The Point is that lord on the Mainland for a Brief vacation with his wife Marie is a supremely confident Man. A few disgruntled voices have intimated that it is More than just Confidence. Over the years reports have wafted Over the Waters that All is not milk and Honey on the Island Paradise where the series is filmed. That lord is possessed of a Large ego and once rewrote his network biography in terms that would have flattered a greek god. That his fellow actors Are a bit rankled that lord retains exclusive right to be called the credits read Quot starring Jack lord with James Macarthur. Ram Kong and Al i asked lord about these rumours and put to him the question of ego and Star Billing. His Blue eyes seemed to ice for a moment and he considered his words carefully. A someone once said anyone who s spoken about is spoken against a he replied. Quot i had a Deal with the network going in that called for Star Billing. There was a reason for that. I done to know where the criticism began. It s mostly about Jimmy Macarthur. Quot but he was t even in our Pilot. I congratulated him when he was hired. He s a marvelous actor but i done to see Why any actor who had nothing to do with the Pilot or Selling it on Madison Avenue should be handed Star Billing. Stardom is something you earn. The two shows i starred in a Hawaii five of and a Stoney Burke a i helped sell them on Madison Avenue. So you May Call it ego. I Call it Good business sense a lord said he did not know of any open friction on the show a i m sure some people think about it a he said. Quot my relationship with the other actors Are open. I try to help them. Jimmy does no to need any help. He a a real Quot Hawaii five of is a flamboyant show and one of the consistently better detective shows on the air. What a interesting is that while the shows production values Are a Little flashy lord s style is not and it works out Well. The Lush locations the exotic faces and the snap and crispness of its color a lord credits this to Hawaii s nearness to the Equator a impart a special look. Add to this the bizarre crimes and the frantic Pace and you have a very stylized show George Peppard Telly Savalas jewish heroes missing from television screens Hollywood Nea a television has been praised for the ways it has progressed in its use of Blacks. But what about the medium s use of jews Quot something needs to be done a says Milton Senn. Who is the Western regional director of u Nai brith s anti defamation league. Quot on today a to there in t one real hero who is jewish. Look at All the lawyer and doctor shows a not one is the facts Bear him out. The heroes of the to series Bear Anglo Saxon names like Cannon Jones Ironside Dillon Ramsey and Erskine with a sprinkling of Blacks and poles and even a half chinese. Not a jewish name around there have been a few situation comedies which included jewish characters even one Needles and pins which is almost All jewish but that features i feel caricature jews. There is not one heroic jewish figure on to even in the Fields of Law and Medicine which traditionally have Many jewish practitioners. A the jewish presence is invisible on to a says producer David Dorton. Dortort used to make Bonanza which starred a jewish actor lome Greene As Ben Cartwright. Quot who do jewish kids have to Root for to gives them that used to be the rallying cry of the Blacks and with justification. Now they have their to heroes a Shaft Tenafly a but still there Are no jewish Star parts. This is curious because there Are so Many jews in commanding positions with the networks and studios. One of them producer David Victor Marcus Welby and Owen Marshall thinks its because they Are playing it Safe. Quot they would like not to fragment the audience a Victor says. Quot there is a need for the widest possible audience and they done to want to offend anyone a but still there Are the Banac eks and Kojak and Tomas and Columbos All clearly ethnic types. And these seem to be proliferating. While none of the networks would comment officially on this question one network official did say although he would not permit his name to be used that they try to avoid using heroes of a specific nationality or religion. Quot out of the 900 shows that have been on to a he said Quot there May have been ten heroes within an identifiable ancestry. We be used a few italians to offset the bad publicity we got for having so Many italian heavies. We try to keep All our heroes Middle of the Many jewish actors Are playing non jewish heroes. On Dortort s Bonanza three of the original four Cartwright were jewish a Greene Michael Landon and Pernell Roberts. Only the later Dan Blocker was not. Peter Falk plays an italian. Arthur Hill plays the very Anglo Saxon Owen Marshall. It Quot h hilcikic0- America s largest tax service with Over 6000 offices a 823 n. Main St. 885-0019 a 3035 Main St. 431-5227 a 1020 e.

His chiselled face wears a troubled no nonsense expression. It plays off Well against the flamboyance of the show. He definitely is not lost among the Flora and the Fauna. After six years on the air. Lord s Mcgarrett still remains a mystery maa we see Only one Side of him a the business Side Quot not knowing him works for us a said lord. Quot we get letters from people wanting to see something of his personal life. I think the mystery piques people. I think it also annoys them a in his own life. Lord in t a mystery although he is a very private person. He said that living in Honolulu where he intends to remain once the show leaves the air does no to give him a sense of isolation Quot even when i was in Hollywood i was never of it a he said. Quot i never ran with the crowd in a a loner with the exception of a few people i grew up with on Broadway a Paul Newman Tony Franciosa. Steve Mcqueen Darren Mcgavin. I did no to have Many contacts with Hollywood. I wanted to spend my time with my lord. 43. And his wife a former fashion designer live in a condominium at Kahala Beach. He is an accomplished Painter. He majored in Fine arts while on a football scholarship at new York University. His works hang in the museum of modern Art and the metropolitan museum in new York and the smithsonian institution. Lord also admits that Hawaii a distance from the network decision makers provides the show with an autonomy he enjoys. Despite his Confidence and the Success of the show he said Quot no one in television who cares about his work is totally satisfied. You have to make compromises. It s the sonnet form. You get 14 lines and that it a Sun enriched Lack of Vitamin c can cause a Blotchy tan when you sunbathe. To avoid this problem eat plenty of Citrus fruits strawberries and Cantaloupe.
