I still think this 1957 article by Jack Lord which includes some of his art work would be an interesting read....
I'll post it once my friend pretty-peaches gets 700 clicks - which will only take you dear reader 5 seconds and a click - which is vastly less time then it took me to scan this. or photoshop this horrible national lampoon cover.

I found this hilarious Hawaii Five-O drinking game online today at
http://www.mjq.net/fiveo/sirah.htm and it contains many references to Jack Lord's Hawaii Five-O character "McGarrett." Try this and see how much hilarity ensues. Feel free to post your results (or your before/after photos of your liver) here - to honor, and in memory of, Jack Lord.

In case the URL expires at some future date, I've decided to paste the game text here with whatever credit(s) are currently shown on the web page. We all know how forgetful this computer interweb thingy can get at times...

=========================================

HAWAII FIVE-O DRINKING GAME (Sirah style)

Created by Sirah

This game is an outgrowth of one created in my college days, called "McGarrett", an homage to the popular "Hi Bob" drinking game which, everybody noticed, never got anybody all that drunk. It is quite possible to get completely toasted with the "basic" rules alone. If you're feeling especially adventurous, use as many of the subsequent "optional" rules as you like.

Additional note: some of these rules are similar to others posted previously -- great minds think alike.

The article helps answer questions of why Jack would actually throw himself on the floor clutching Sheldon's legs and literally beg not to be fired for an infraction of standards in the middle of 5-0. He'd made it big and was suddenly seeing it all disappear before his eyes, fearing a return to typical actor struggles.

It actually doesn't. Eddie Sherman was always writing garbage about Jack. Jack and Leonard Freeman were close friends who worked together years before. Freeman's wife, Rose, always commented on what good friends they were. She would not say that if this incident really occurred.

Jack was already a millionaire by the time he did Hawaii Five-O, and made more money afterwards. He earned one million from doing his earlier series, Stoney Burke. It was cancelled after one season, but Jack performed as Stoney in rodeos and made money off that. He was in a position to pick and choose his roles.

Jack also became wealthy from doing Hawaii Five-O in the first few years it was on. He made $2 million in 1971. He didn't need to keep doing Hawaii Five-O for the money, and if he was so upset about losing his job whenever this incident occurred, why would he have been so willing to walk off the set in 1973, when a producer brought a visitor to the set, violating set regulations. He was so upset at the prospect of losing his job over an alleged letter which was never produced but yet willing to walk off the set of the show a few months or a year later? That doesn't make sense.

The letter that Sherman claims Jack was told about never surfaced, and when would Leonard Freeman have had the time to get in touch with Lloyd Bridges to have him replace Jack? All this happened over the course of a few days. If this really happened, Freeman would have more important things to worry about than replacing Jack.

Sherman conveniently was not there when Freeman confronted Jack. He was next door, and reports on what Freeman allegedly told him when he came back. If he said he had gone into Jack's apartment, that would have caused a lot of questioning to confirm if this did happen or not. Sherman published his book in 2006, one year after Marie Lord, Jack's wife, died. Jack and Lloyd died in 1998 and Leonard Freeman in 1974.

I've spoken to Jimmy Borges, Jack's friend and co-star and a woman who was friends with Jack. Though they had heard the rumor, no one they knew connected with the show ever said it happened. If it did, it would have surfaced long before Sherman published his book.
