Jack Lord was a real professional and he expected his crew to do the same.
When I worked for Hawaii Five O,they hired me as a set wardrobe supervisor,why not as a camera person? Since the Hollywood camera union claimed jurisdiction on films originating from Hollywood and they forbid any one not in their union to work on camera jobs. the situation was later resolved but I had to go to Hollywood for tests to obtain my camera card to continue work with 5-O .
Jack paid major attention on make up,hair and wardrobe,because if these 3 crafts were messed up,the whole days production including shooting is useless, money down the drain !!! Why ? Because movie shooting doesn't follow the script in the sequences as written ,or when an actor while during a scene unconscionably loosens his tie knot 3 inches,the wardrobe guy better take note. After 12 or 14 hours work day,the company called a wrap to continue the next day, wow! the next day ,wardrobe,make up & hair must match or the scenes are useless !!!
One episode involved a fictional death in the family,the scene was filmed in Jack's Five-O office where lights can be dimmed to set the mood of the scene. Jack was so taken by the story line that he had the whole production crew in silence,no talking or movement. He actually cried doing the scene. We were are all taken aback by his acting to go from chasing criminals to a dramatic scene.
After the successful take of the scene,I took the liberty of bringing him a cup of water ,he sips the water then looked up with appreciative eyes and said, 'who said action is easy?"
Tales from the original Hawaii-Five-O are from my memory of over a half a century ago. I will do more if memory can recall all the fun and hard work.
Next on line, location on Oahu's North Shore to see the other side of Jack's character. Aloha, Unc C
