There was more to Hawaii Five-0 than just Jack Lord's awesome hair. There were also miniskirts. If you could avert your eyes from Lord's godlike pate, there were plenty o' minis to bee seen.
In this post we not only have a bunch of Five-0 minis, but also a brief bio for each actress that's wearing them. Some interesting, some not-so-much.
Anyway, book dem miniskirts, Dano! (It had to be said. Better to get it over with early.)
Kathleen would go on to tons of TV work including a lead role on Father Murphy (remember that sappy show with Merlon Olson?) and Beverly Hills 90210 - she played Tori Spelling's mom.
Trivia: Beth is from Arkansas and has always been politically active, especially as a supporter for the Bill Clinton presidential campaign.
You don't think Beth and Bill did a little, you know....... that Bill and her participated in a bit of......naahhhh.
You'll notice a young Tom Skerritt, who plays her boyfriend with real anger issues. I really want to read what's on that paper...
Looks like "East West Center originated in statehood pride." Could it actually be a Hawaiian newspaper?
The show could be surprisingly brutal. It's portrayals of violence were often very direct, in focus, an unwavering. This scene in particular was genuinely disturbing. The killer very graphically murders Hot Lips.... something I'm sure both Frank and Hawkeye have dreamed of doing on more than one occasion..
So, let's end on a bright note with the winner for shortest miniskirt of them all. That honor goes to Barbara Luna.
Luna was the first choice to play Anita in West Side Story (a role that went to Rita Moreno). On Five-0 she graces the screen with not one but two micro minis. And for that, we thank her.
