Best known as the steely-eyed, perfectly quaffed police detective Lt. Steve McGarrett on the long-running CBS series "Hawaii Five-O" (1968-80), actor Jack Lord portrayed one of the most iconic leading roles in television history. Coming from the seemingly incongruent backgrounds of his vocation as visual artist and his occupation as a seaman, Lord found himself drawn to acting relatively late in life. He garnered acclaim on Broadway before moving on to television work on programs like "Studio One" (CBS, 1948-1958) and in such films as "The True Story of Lynn Stuart" (1958). He made the most of a small role as CIA operative Felix Leiter in "Dr. No" (1962) then took on the title character for the short-lived television series "Stoney Burke" (ABC, 1962-63). It was, of course, his next leading TV role that earned him lasting fame on the crime-drama "Hawaii Five-O," for which he became forever associated with the oft-repeated quip, "Book 'em, Danno." A man described as both unwaveringly professional and intensely private, Lord virtually disappeared from the public eye in the years following the cancellation of "Hawaii Five-O." It was most likely Lord's intention that fans worldwide would forever remember him primarily as McGarrett, the no-nonsense crime-fighter bringing justice to the idyllic shores of Honolulu.
