SEASON 1, 1959-60:

1. MALIHINI HOLIDAY (10/7/59)
Teleplay by Robert J. Shaw, Story by Juanita Sheridan; Directed by Howard W. Koch
Regulars: Eisley, Conrad, Stevens, Ponce
Guests: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. (Stuart Bailey), Patricia Driscoll (Mavis Purcell), Duncan LaMont (Peter Purcell), Edward Kemmer (Michael Thompson), Ross Elliot (Bill Garrison), Tracey Roberts (Peggy Garrison), Sal Ponti (David Kimu), Pilar Seurat (Lala Kealoha)

It's Boat Day, and amid all the excitement, the ship's railing swings open in the harbor and suddenly, Mavis Purcell's in the water with the coin divers. Her husband was with her at the rail and it looks like she was pushed. A man notes that the lock on the rail is missing. Local writer Bill Garrison asks Tracy to keep an eye on Mavis, who has had a lot of "accidents" lately. Her husband is illustrating Bill's latest book. Mavis has a near miss on the Garrison's beach when a "no swimming" sign is covered by her husband's shirt. Peter Purcell has quite an eye for the ladies, and he seems the obvious suspect, but Mavis has a boyfriend too, Mike Thompson. Who's doing what to whom?

Oddly, several episodes of this series misspell titles or alter them from opening credit to final one. This one starts with "malihini" (foreigner, non-native) spelled correctly. In the end credits, it's incorrectly spelled "malahini." In the next episode aired, the title at the top of the show is "The Waikiki Widow," but in the end credits, the "The" is deleted. This also happens with episode number 3, "The Second Day of Infamy." A studio's business affairs office releases a typed list of all credits as contractually agreed upon, with correct spellings, order, and size noted. But this was early days of TV at the Warner Lot, and perhaps they didn't have the routine in place yet.
Ponce sings a Warner's standard, "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby," and Stevens sings "Let's Do It" Lopaka is on Lanai, "The Pineapple Island" which was then entirely agricultural and privately owned. It is now owned by David Murdoch and as the pineapple industry has died out, a recent announcement touted a new housing development on Lanai, with prices from $350,000 to $1 million. All this for a small island without a theatre, car dealership or large town.
Note when Tom is breakfasting after a swim in the office pool, he can't seem to get a spear of pineapple out of its attractive but impractical skin. The establishing shot of the Garrison house from the beach looks like a matte painting. The flowers Peggy Garrison is arranging are typical island ones: anthurium, ti leaves and torch ginger.
When a "classical hula" is announced in the shell bar, the music is totally wrong, and the dance is a hodgepodge of traditional hula hand movements that make no sense.


2. THE WAIKIKI WIDOW (10/14/59)
Written by Lowell Barrington, Based on a novel by Juanita Sheridan; Directed by Leslie H. Martinson
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce, Mel Prestidge
Myron Healy (Dan Gordon), H.T. Tsiang (Old Tseung), Michael Raffetto (Papa Haone), Paula Raymond (Lady Blanche Carleton), Robert McQueeney (Mr. Webster), Karl Weber (John Hunter), Judy Dan (Sally Tseung)

Hotel employee Sally Tseung asks Tracy and Tom to come when her brother has a skindiving accident. Before he dies, he manages to trace three symbols on the sheet: a "T," the Chinese symbol for dragon and one for tiger. These puzzle everyone including his grandfather. Sally's brother was a houseboy for a woman everyone calls "The Waikiki Widow," and old Tseung says it's a noble profession--he was once houseboy to the dowager empress in China, who gave him 99 black pearls for foiling an assassination attempt. Tseung doesn't know where these pearls are now, he last gave them to a missionary in China for safekeeping.
At the Widow's (Lady Blanche Carleton) home, there is a missionary and several men friends. Hunter, one of the men, yammers on about Dragon Wells Tea, "the most expensive tea in the world." He's an importer, and because dragon's in the name, the guys check it out. One of the employees tells them that in the last shipment of ten chests of this valuable tea, one did not contain the rare variety but common oolong. The missionary is the same one, but he gave the pearls to Lord Carleton, recently deceased, in Hong Kong. His estate went to his son by a first marriage and the Waikiki Widow is Without Funds.

Ponce sings "Down Where the The Tradewinds Play" (partial), "When My Dreamboat Comes Home" (partial); Connie Stevens sings "Dancing on the Ceiling."
Siamese fighting fish remain very popular but they don't look like the fish in the show.
There is a great shot of the Hawaiian Village at night, as well as the hotel's original sign. Tracy drives a white 1959 Ford Sunliner convertible, the bus costs a dime and Tracy keeps a gun in his car's glovebox--everyone did, if you believe TV. All characters in the
Perry Mason shows had guns in their glove compartments--rarely locked. There is also some great footage of the old Honolulu International Airport from the days when the luggage was placed on tables under a small roof and free pineapple juice and leis were given to all arrivals.

3. THE SECOND DAY OF INFAMY (10/21/59)
Written by Steven Ritch; Directed by Howard W. Koch
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce, Doug Mossman
Guests: Miiko Taka (Sumiko), Yuki Shimoda (Yato Mitsuki), Ed Platt (Dr. Wallace Oliver), Lee Patrick (Pearl Blake), Mel Prestidge (Attendant), Dell-Fin Poha, Ethel Kuulei Reiman (Mamma-san Kim), Jean Ingram (Teresa) Renette Wright (Marie)

Yato Mitsuki has escaped from the hospital and Dr. Wallace Oliver is concerned. Mitsuki believes it is still 1941 and he's a Japanese agent. He's not only a danger to himself, but to the woman who was his girlfriend Sumiko in 1941, but who now has a family which Mirsuki's muddled mind can't cope with. Dr. Oliver asks for help from Hawaiian Eye in locating Mitsuki and they call on the entire agency for the search.

The music at the hula studio is again a pop mishmash and not a hula tempo. The cane fields shown look like the ones once around Waipahu. The old mill smokestack is still there, but the old mill property is being developed as housing.
This episode is a rare one for this series, having been shot in great part on location on Oahu. It was the first one of the season shot (after the pilot), and that's probably the reason Mel Prestidge is only the "Attendant" in this one, while in "Waikiki Widow," he's a homicide detective, a role which would be expanded into Lt. Danny Quon.


4. ALL EXPENSES PAID (10/28/59)
Written by Robert J. Shaw; Directed by Charles Haas
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Karen Steele (Marion Summers), Anthony George (Miller Kincaid), Doug Mossman (Marty), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Mary Adams (Esther Harmon), Mako (Cab Driver), Don Dillaway (Mort), Steven Ritch (Purser), Sharon Landa (Receptionist), Miki Kato (Elevator Operator)

Tom goes to see a guest, a Miss Summers, but they get off to a rocky start. She broke Cricket's camera when she took a candid photo. Marion Summers apologizes, offers to pay for the camera, and no more pictures. He leaves only to be replaced by another unwelcome guest, Nick's man, who calls her Jill. She throws him out. Marion decides she prefers Tom's company, and shows up in his pool. She talks as if the present is unpleasant and she and Tom hit it off big time. Meanwhile, Nick's guy tosses a room. Is it hers? No. Mrs. Harmon's room has been burglarized. Tom and D anny are on it, and Danny reminds him to talk to the people in adjacent rooms-which include Marion's. Danny recovers the stuff from a pawn shop, but there's an extra piece. Plus, the guy got a big 65 bucks for it all, when each piece is worth ten times that. Nick's thug and Marion trade insults and he belts her. Later, Tom takes Marion to the Shell Bar. He knows her name is Jill. But it's only Jill with people in Chicago. It's really Marion. Nick Corday sent her to Hawaii while he's being investigated by the IRS and Treasury. Then Tom sends security guard Wally to get his car. It explodes. Tom grills Marion, then gives her the brooch from the pawn shop. Why didn't she report the burglary? She blubbers about Nick, but Tom gets mad-Nick's 5000 miles away and Wally's dead.

The lei the man in the opening scene buys is a double carnation, and they were rarely done with multiple colors like this one. They fell out of favor in the 80s and 90s , some say, because they became associated with politicians who would frequently wear double red carnation lei on every occasion. Maile and more tradition Hawaiian flowers and leaves like pikake, ginger, hala, tuberose and seagrape now join orchids as the more common lei.
The building Tom turns left in front of is the Honolulu Advertiser buiding, which looks nearly exactly the same today. Note that the hotel has elevator operators. They were still common in high-end p laces like fine department stores and hotels, even though the old manual controls were mostly replaced with self-service cars so the passengers could operate them in off-hours.
Stevens sings: "Somebody Loves Me," a song from 1892 by Tin Pan Alley's first successful woman composer, Hattie Starr. It was used as the title song for Paramount's 1952 biopic of vaudevillians Blossom Seeley and Benny Fields.


5. DANGEROUS EDEN (11/4/59)
Written by Robert C. Dennis; Directed by Edward Dein
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Audrey Totter (Martha [Marta in dialogue] Gregory), Jackie Coogan (Max Stanley), Douglas Dick (Philip), Myrna Fahey (Kay Laniel), Malcolm Atterbury (David Evarts)

Longtime movie star Marta Gregory's shooting in Honolulu and Hawaiian Eye is providing set security-keeping even Cricket's snaps to a minimum. Gregory's got a younger husband and she finds a way to blame him for everything that's going wrong on the set. She has only circumstantial evidence, but loudly accuses her stand-in, Kay Laniel, of having an affair with Philip. Kay is incensed, and immediately institutes proceedings against Marta for defamation of character.
Everyone wants this lawsuit to go away. Max Stanley hires Hawaiian Eye to get evidence, then Marta hires them, then they're fired again. It isn't hard to learn the affair is a real one, but there's a new wrinkle. Local man David Evarts is working on the film and Tracy learns Evarts was injured 15 years ago on another Gregory film and she's been supporting him ever since. When he's killed, the stakes go way up.

This episode owes a great deal to Sunset Boulevard, from the slight resemblance of Totter to Gloria Swanson and Dick to Holden, as well as Coogan playing a loyal character named 'Max.'
Note Bob Conrad's swim trunks have a logo on them, an "O" with a paddle through it. This is the logo of the famous and longtime Outrigger Canoe Club, which used to be on Waikiki Beach between the Moana and Royal Hawaiian Hotels. When that lease was up, they moved down to San Souci beach near the tip of Diamond Head. Note also Cricket's hat on the movie set--it has built-in sunglasses.
There are several obvious product placement ads for United Air Lines. At the time, only United and Pan Am could fly from the west coast to Hawaii. This monopoly was broken in 1969.
Mandeville Canyon is mentioned as the location where Evarts was hurt 15 years ago. It is a real canyon, between Brentwood and Pacific Palisades, and is home to many movie people.
Cricket doesn't sing in this episode because she says she has a cold. She pushes Tom up on stage and Conrad sings "I've Got a Crush on You." Hotel background music includes "You and the Night and the Music."


6. CLOUD OVER KOALA (11/11/59)
Teleplay by Louis Pelletier based on a radio play by Stanley Niss; Directed by William Hole
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Joanna Moore (Peggy McLane), Maurice Manson (Alfred Holland), Don Gordon (Cliff Johnson), Jack Orrison (Vedder), Lou Krugman (John Peralta), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon)

A man and woman use a dog to set up a mark. Alfred Holland falls for Peggy McLane and spends the morning on the beach with her, despite the fact that he's never been late for work in 18 years (and 4 months). She invites him for dinner. He works at John Peralta Real Estate. Tom is there, working on a case for Peralta-he's trying to find a William Vedder. He was released four years ago from prison. Peralta and Vetter worked on a real estate deal which died then but is now active and he needs Vedder's signature. Tom finds out there was another man transported to the same place at the same time with Vetter; he wants to find him. Meanwhile, Peggy and Cliff are working on her backstory. They are trying to get Holland to marry her. Cliff Johnson is the man who was in prison with Vedder, denies it, but Vedder's in his room. He wants the 50% he's entitled to on the property on Koala Beach with a right of survivorship clause.

Cricket mentions "the Advertiser and Star-Bulletin." They are still the two main daily newspapers in Honolulu. They are both morning papers now, but the Star-Bulletin used to be the afternoon paper.
While Alfred romances Peggy, the background music is, appropriately, "It Had to be You."
Hanauma Bay is an extremely popular spot on Oahu. You used to be able to drive down to it, but the crowds and cars destroyed the fragile ecosystem of the popular scuba-diving site, and the bay was closed for some years. It is now accessible to the public on a limited basis.


7. BEACH BOY (11/18/59)
Written by Robert J. Shaw; Directed by Andre deToth
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Troy Donahue (Pete), Anna Lee (Donna [Saunders] Lane), Faith Domergue (Onori), Robert Lowery (Carlton Lane), Robert Warwick (Fiji) Doug Mossman (Marty [Moke in dialogue])

Peter is a local beach boy who robs a wealthy couple, the Lanes. Their son was killed eleven years ago while swimming. Peter was raised by a local man and Tracy feels Peter is actually their son. He believes it too. He only saw Mrs. Lane a few weeks ago. Donna Saunders Lane wants to meet him. She isn't sure she knows him, but their dog sure does. Mrs. Lane comes to Hawaiian Eye filled with doubt. He asks for some identification of her son-she says he was born in Bangkok and has nothing of his. Tracy thinks they may be some chance some of Peter's books might still be around.
Donna's second husband Carlton evidently thought he drowned Peter. He had a mistress and promised nothing would change when he married Donna, but he hasn't lived up to his bargain. She has no sympathy for his problem. Tracy checks Peter's handwriting to compare with that i n one of Donna's son's books. But he doesn't know how to write. Tracy suggests she take him home for a few days. Peter tells Tracy that Carlton Lane tried to kill him-the gas in his room was on. The window was locked closed and he'd left it open. Tracy tells him to go back to the house as if nothing happened.

Donahue would become a regular on SurfSide 6, but he'd show up on Hawaiian Eye often as he and Connie Stevens were such a photogenic couple. Kim sings "With a Song in My Heart." Carlton wears the same Aloha Shirt that Jack Ferris wears in the next episode.

8. THREE TICKETS TO LANI (11/25/59)
Teleplay by Day Keene and Dwight Babcock, Story by Day Keene ; Directed by Robert Altman
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Alex Gerry (Martin Fawcett), June Blair (Anita Callahan), Robert Knapp (Jack Ferris), Nicholas Georgiade (Kala), Stella Lynn (Desk Clerk), Minda Felciano (Evelyn), Norma French (Peggy), Edo Mita (Japanese Man), Stephen Coit (Burke)

Stu Bailey [of 77 Sunset Strip] calls for their help locating J. Harrison Rennie, who's absconded with the funds from his brother-in-law's company in Los Angeles. Tom finds the man, but he claims his name is Martin Fawcett. He's got lots of identification. Rennie checked out on the 8th. Tom finds out Rennie rode Kim's cab and he takes Tom there. The two men inside are instantly on the alert and a blonde's sunbathing in the back yard. She and her former brother-in-law Jack Faris are very close. Quon tells Tracy that the Faris travel bureau has been under suspicion for some time-they sell "paradise" on some unnamed island to unsuspecting middle-aged men. They never get there, and wake up with their money gone and are too embarrassed to prosecute. Tom wants to see Anita Callahan, who works at the agency. Mr. Fawcett goes in with the money for their tickets. She takes his money and says she'll call him. Tom goes in and shows her Rennie's photo. She says she remembers him and Tom takes her out to lunch, feeling if her gets her alone, he'll get more out of her. Tracy finds a boat named the Lani, but the guy on it claims it's not for charter any longer and they name's been changed. Jack and Anita are both scared and want to pull out that night. Tracy thinks they'll take the boat out tonight on a long trip. Tom finds out Fawcett has withdrawn $41,000 from his bank.

In the opening scene, Connie Stevens drives one of the little "Kaiser pink" carts available to Hawaiian Village guests, mostly for transport within the property, but you would see them in Waikiki too. Ponce Ponce sings "There's 'Yes' in Your Eyes." Notice the background when Tom talks to Kim--the 77 Sunset Strip record album is prominently displayed.
Jack and Anita have nifty Hawaiian wear on the night they're escaping. It wasn't hard to find Aloha shirts and sundresses in Los Angeles at the time. There were many shops that specialized in Hawaiian wear for people traveling by ship to Hawaii as well as people having or going to backyard luaus, which were extremely popular at the time. Waltah Clarke had upscale Hawaiian wear shops in Beverly Hills, Palm Springs and other locations. The yacht harbor scenes were shot in Los Angeles.


9. THE QUICK RETURN (12/2/59)
Teleplay by Robert C. Dennis, Story by Stanley Niss and Robert C. Dennis; Directed by Edward Dein
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Adam West (George Nolen), Harry Jackson (Jerry Jackson), Patricia Huston (Alma Jackson), Carol Ohmart (Celia Lewin), Hugh Sanders (Victor Shaw), Tol Avery (Charles Germaine), Rush Williams (Roy Hondine), Doug Mossman (Marty), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Dell-Fin Thursday (Receptionist).

A man's waiting for Tracy in the Shell Bar. He's looped, but he's an old friend, Jerry Jackson. He's a PR man, married, and has given up on writing the great American novel. His boss, Victor Shaw, got a warning to get out of Hawaii. Shaw is a millionaire and brooks no nonsense. He hires Tracy, and introduces George and Celia. She's Shaw's girl, but Tracy saw her necking with George. He tells Tracy to ignore Jerry-he's a lush. Tracy finds Jerry face down in the foliage, with a death threat to Victor Shaw in his hand. He claims to have an incriminating notebook, but there's a man in his room and it's gone. He thinks George stole it. The next day, Victor demands Jerry produce the notebook. He slinks off. Victor knows about the wedding. Surprisingly, Victor throws them a party and gives them a check. He's firing them and Jerry. Tracy accuses Jerry's wife of ruining him. She has the notebook. Tracy gets a call: Victor Shaw is dead.

In the scene where Kim takes George in the cab, George is in the back seat but in the location-shot, the passenger is in front. Every year, they shot a variety of establishing shots in Honolulu each season, but missed one with Kim leaving the hotel with someone in back.
The residential area they go to is on the Warner Bros. backlot. Tracy is surprised to witness a marriage between George and Celia.
Connie Stevens sings "Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise," was written by Oscar Hammerstein II and Sigmund Romberg for the operetta
The New Moon, in 1928. The show was filmed by MGM twice. A fire dancer performs.
Tracy says "you can always tell when a party's over-they float a lei out to sea." It's exactly the opposite. You throw a lei into the sea (from the ship) and if it returns to shore, you will return too.


10. SECRET OF THE SECOND DOOR (12/9/59)
Teleplay by Ed Jurist from a novel by Robert Colby; Directed by Paul Stewart
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Christine White (Connie Cummins), Harry Bartell (Sortino), Victor Sen Yung (Archibald Chu Sin), James McCallion (Meeghan), Karl Lukas (Arthur), Jerry Hausner (Rettler), Than Wyenn (Nestor), Jacquelyn Ravel (Miss [Lucy] Kahali), Jane Chang (Angelina), Sondi Sodsai (Makaleka).

After a rough card game, a night clerk in a third-rate hotel, Paul Cummins, is missing and his wife asks for Tom's help. Then she gets a call that he was killed on the road to Waipahu. She's upset when she sees his effects--a small bag is missing. Tom wonders why she's more concerned about the car and the bag than her husband. Meanwhile, Mr. Nestro is threatened by three men, but he claims he didn't take the money. A psychopath named Arthur beats him to death. Then Mrs. Cummins goes to Tom and asks if he wants 10% of $200,000. Paul was an inveterate gambler but this time, he won and he hid it. He doesn't believe Paul had the money to get into such a high stakes game. Gee, all Tom has to do is find it. He says they get a $200 retainer and $100 a day plus expenses. Period. Her husband wanted to take it and go to the island. She didn't want to leave. In his early investigation, Tom learns Nestro called his secretary telling her some "friends" were staying at his house. When Tom finds the thugs there, he's suspicious. Nestro and a man with an emerald stickpin were both at the poker game. Emerald says Paul won $200,000. He and his thugs have been searching Nestro's house for the money; after Tom's visit, they stop looking. Tom finds out emerald stickpin is named Victor Sortino.

In first establishing shot, Wo Fat Chop Suey, at the corner of Hotel and Nuuanu, has been in business off and on for decades. It was closed by the original owners, then re-opened, but unfortunately, it closed again several years ago. The view from the 3rd floor restaurant was great. The owners used to live above the restaurant. There is a Chinese grocer on the ground floor.
Connie Stevens sings "Why Did I Tell You I Was Going to Shanghai?" which was written by Bob Hilliard and Milton DeLugg (longtime musical director for
Johnny Carson's Tonight Show. Kim mentions that when the boat is late, things are slow. The weekly arrivals of the Matson ships, Lurline and Matsonia, were still popular ways to get to Hawaii, despite the availability of aircraft. The flight took more than eight hours at the time, and the ships took 5 days from the west coast--all of it fun. Tom says he might go out to Waialua--it's on the North Shore and was home to the last operational sugar mill on the island. The photo on the wall of the hotel stairwell is not of the Matson ships, which were all white.
Great quote: Sautino says: "Arthur, nobody with character beats a corpse."

11. SHIPMENT FROM KIHEI (12/16/59)
Teleplay by Robert J. Shaw, Story by Stanley Niss; Directed by Paul Stewart
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Beverly Garland (Rena Harrison), Gerald Mohr (Bart Harrison), H.M. Wynant (Jose "Joe" Kosster), Joan Vohs (Emily Noble), Mark Roberts (Fred Noble) Doug Mossman (Marty [Moke in dialogue]).

Cattle are loaded from the beach on the Big Island on a barge for shipment to Oahu. There are sixty head at loading; a man implies there might not be as many when they arrive.
Tracy sees Miss Harrison, who demands Tracy come with her immediately back to Kihei to see about the theft of cattle. The ranch, with a sign that trespassers will be shot, is as welcoming as the icy Miss Harrison.
Tracy knows their Honolulu broker, Fred Nolan. Harrison offers Tracy $200 a day. He says the brokers are reporting 10-15 less head than what he ships. He thinks the brokerage is guilty. He doesn't want the police involved, and he wants Tracy's unbiased proof. Noble is a friend of Harrison's, and if guilty, he'll fire him but not prosecute. Mrs. Noble arrives at the office, and wants to know why Tracy was in Kihei. She wants to know why Bart has never mentioned the loss of the Harrison cattle to them--everyone knows about the missing cows.
Miss H has a thing for her luna, Joe, (or Jose) and thinks they can break loose from her brother, but he's doubtful. Tracy uses Bart's keys to go to the brokerage and watches Fred remove the books from his safe. He knew Bart hired Tracy and he says he doesn't know what the books show. Noble gives up and leaves the office.
Tracy enlists Tom to go work on the ranch and Tracy checks the arrivals. The cattle all get there, the only cattle missing are in the books.

Tracy and Miss Harrison fly on a Aloha Airlines plane. Aloha at the time was the number two inter-island carrier behind Hawaiian Airlines. The company logo at the time was the silhouette of a bird of paradise.
There are large cattle ranches on the Big Island, the most famous being the Parker Ranch. Kona is the closest airport to the cattle-raising area. A luna is the foreman on a ranch or plantation. A paniolo is a cowboy. One of them sings an old Hawaiian song, "Koni Au."
The make-up people managed to make Beverly Garland look unattractive in this episode and she's lit dimly. It is hard to make an attractive woman look bad, but they did it.
Connie Stevens sings "My Dream is You" and Poncie Ponce sings "Home on the Range."


12. A DIME A DOZEN (12/23/59)
Written by Robert J. Shaw; Directed by Andre deToth
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Joanna Barnes (Rikki [Whitman]), Shirley Knight (Lynn), Donald May ([Lt.] David Blair), Wayne Hefley (Dan Holt), Bill Quinn (Col. Davidson), Carolyn Komant (Kini), Doug Mossman (Marty).

On the beach at Waikiki, a couple lies on the sand in the moonlight. The man is in the Army and has to be on duty tonight. David says he can't see her again; he's going to be married. He leaves but his wallet's on the sand.
Meanwhile, Tracy and Cricket go to the officer's club. David's with his fiancée as they prepare for a cocktail party. Lynn walks along a seedy downtown street and at her hotel, the manager demands the rent--she's three weeks in arrears. He sees David's wallet, packed with cash, and tries to take it, but she stops him.
Tracy's on assignment at the charity party, and talks to David and Ricki, who's staying at the Hawaiian Village. The next morning, Ricki goes to Hawaiian Eye to see Tracy. She had a lunch date with David, but he's confined to quarters. Colonel Davidson confirms the club's safe was robbed of $9,000 last night. Blair had the combination. David refuses to talk. Tracy summons him to the office He knows David's been meeting Lynn every night on the beach. He only broke off with her when Ricki arrived. She left his wallet at the gate. Every dime was in it, but she took the combination to the safe. Meanwhile, Ricki is putting the moves on Tracy, big time.
He sends an envelope to a scientist at the University, which was the envelope Lynn returned to David-it had tattoo ink on it. Her apartment manager is a tattoo artist. David finds Lynn, who denies she took the safe combination. She confronts her hotel manager, Dan. He took the money and he offers her 25%. Then 40%. Then he hits her with a club. Tracy happens on the scene and takes on Dan.

Joanna Barnes is best remembered for playing snotty society girl "Little" Gloria Upson in 1958's Auntie Mame, opposite 77 Sunset Strip's Roger Smith, who played Patrick Dennis.
When the colonel calls Tracy he asks to see him at the fort. There are numerous forts on Oahu, Fort DeRussy, Fort Ruger, Fort Shafter among them. The best officer's club was the Cannon Club at Fort Ruger, but it's not used for the club exterior in this episode. It is on the slopes of Diamond Head, has a fabulous view and though it once was the site of many fancy parties and dinners, it closed some years ago.
Kim does two things on his cab that can't be done in any car today-he slides across the bench seat from the passenger side, and he and the other cabbies are playing cards on the very flat trunk of his 1959 Ford.
Connie Stevens sings "What's New?"


13. THE KOA MAN (12/30/59)
Teleplay by Elihu Winer, Story by Ed Adamson; Directed by Paul Stewart
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Suzanne Storrs (Nancy Campbell), Adam Williams (Harry Gulliver), John McCann (Frank America), Barbara Luna (Susan Chang), Chet Stratton (Desk Clerk) , Jolene Brand (Lola), DM (Marty [Moke]), Andre Philippe (MC)

Tracy looks for Nancy Campbell at an apartment building. She's there, but the desk clerk lied for her. She insists she'll move, but the clerk won't let her. She promises it's nothing bad. Meanwhile, Harry Gulliver buys a photo of himself from Cricket that she took at the Matson dock. Harry was in Korea with Tracy . He's real envious of their firm. Tracy says they're not having much luck right now-they can't find a pretty girl. Harry wants to help, but he's a drunk and thinks he's a coward. And he's also got a photo of Nancy in his hotel room. Kim confirms Nancy Campbell lives at the Maui Apts, under the name of Morton. But she's moved. Tracy calls a number Nancy called and it's a dance studio. She no longer works there but Tracy wants to check on it anyway. Nancy quit yesterday. Tracy's followed by both Nancy's boyfriend, and old Harry. Nancy's boyfriend pulls a gun on Tracy. Susan Chang, owner of the dance studio, tells Tracy Nancy's running away from Harry-he wrote her threatening letters and has been stalking her. Harry Gulliver, was never registered for the hardware convention he claimed he was attending. Tracy goes to Nancy's new address and finds Harry with a gun on her and the boyfriend knocked out on the floor.

Connie Stevens sings "How Sweet You Are," by Frank Loesser and Arthur Schwartz, introduced in the 1943 Warner Bros. film Thank Your Lucky Stars.
The apartment building shown in the establishing shot was real.. The interesting Asian-style balconies were painted bright turquoise.


14. STAMPED FOR DANGER (1/6/60)
Written by Robert C. Dennis; Directed by Paul Stewart
Based on a novel by Emmett McDowell
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Ruta Lee ([Vera Kirkland] Princess Aysha), Jay Novello (Ahmed), Patric Knowles (Cyril Plummer), John Litel (Edward DeLong), Burt Douglas (Martin Wheeler), Saundra Edwards (Nancy Wheeler), Mickey Simpson (Hugo) Doug Mossman (Marty).

Vera Kirkland, a dancer from the Coolie Club, met a guy in San Francisco and now he's in Hawaii. She'd like to find him. Name's Martin Wheeler. She went from San Francisco to Asia where she was married to a Sultan, but she was summarily divorced without a ruby to her name. She has Martin's last letter with some hints as to his new job. She gives the letters to Tracy and leaves the envelopes in the hotel safe and gets Moke to brush off a man. Tracy finds Wheeler…and his wife. He claims he wrote Vera of his marriage. Tracy tells her she has all his letters, but he's not worried--they're fairly tame. The man Vera brushed off goes into Tracy's office and tries to find Vera's letters. He's got a dagger and gets away. Tracy does have the letters and puts them in the hotel safe. A servant of the Sultan's, Ahmed, is in Honolulu and is the man trying to get the letters back. Tracy goes to see Cyril Plummer (who's just coshed Ahmed and put him into a janitor's closet) to ask about the princess, who arrives just as Ahmed's dead body falls out of the closet.

Ruta Lee does one of the most ludicrous imitations of a hula ever seen on screen. It's supposed to be bad, but not this bad. The cellophane skirt she wears was introduced by Auntie Rose Joshua of the Magic Hula School and several Waikiki hotel dancers in the 1930s. It added glitz to the standard dried grass skirt. The green ti leaf skirt was considered too plain for hotel showrooms until the 1970s.
Kim takes a job showing two sisters "the Oriental section" of Honolulu. There is Chinatown and an area originally settled by the Japanese.
When Tracy goes to the library, the building used in the establishing shot is not the main branch of the state library. The big dark edifice shown as the mansion of Edward DeLong is actually the Bishop Museum, the excellent museum of Hawaiian a nd Polynesian history, endowed by Charles Bishop and his royal wife, Princess Bernice Pauahi, who inherited most of the royal lands and endowed the Kamehameha Schools. Bishop owned Bishop Bank (now First Hawaiian) and his estate supports the museum.
Connie Stevens sings "It's Magic." Tracy uses an Ericophone, a Swedish one-piece phone with the dial on the bottom. The big button on the bottom is the on/off switch. This phone was available at the time from Hawaiian Telephone in a number of colors. It chirped instead of ringing.


15. THE KAMEHAMEHA CLOAK (1/13/60)
Written by Dwight Babcock & Day Keene; Directed by William J. Hole Jr. Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Kathleen Crowley (May Caldwell), Tris Coffin (Ames Caldwell), Paul Picerni (Lanakila), Robert Colbert (Jim Symington), Susan Crane (Pauline), Wendell Holmes (Dr. Abner Moses Good), Jack Beutel (Dr. Eliot), Miki Kato (Suke Yamato), Edo Mita (Yamato), Andre Philippe (MC)

A group of archeologists on the Big Island discovers the Kamehameha Cloak. Lanakila swears it is death to anyone who touches it but the scientists are skeptical. May Caldwell goes to see Tom for help. She takes him to see artifacts from the cave. Lead archeologist Ames Caldwell is sick, perhaps because of a curse Lanakila put on him. Dr. Good is caring for him. Despite being ill, he's still thrilled to have found Kamehameha's burial cavern. The entrance is underwater. He doesn't believe he's cursed or poisoned, his illness is just coincidence. Caldwell's daughter is a bit wild and a troublemaker. There's a huge thunderstorm and the phone lines to the house are out, Caldwell's sicker and Tom's suspicious of everyone. When he finds the cut wires outside, he's nearly killed with a thrown cane knife. The man's doctor is a hack and Tom wants to know how he's treating him when he hasn't a diagnosis. The pills he's giving him are simple sedatives. Another doctor's been sent for but the dirty work in this family is extensive and there are lots of secrets. Tom risks his life to return the cloak and headdress to the burial cave.

Connie Stevens sings "Sing Something Simple," a song introduced in 1930's The Second Little Show as a parody on the sophisticated lyrics common in review songs of the time. Ponce Ponce sings "Ua Like No a Like (Constancy)."
King Kamehameha I was the first man to unite all the islands under his rule-the beginning of the Hawaiian Kingdom. It was a tradition that members of the alii (royalty) were buried in secret caverns and only a few people knew the location and they felt it a great honor to hold the secret. Hawaiian mansions and plantation houses look nothing like the columned house shown in the establishing shot of Caldwell's house. Hawaiian houses were more ranch-style, with high roofs, large lanais and lots of ventilation.
When people remove volcanic rock from the Big Island, they are often plagued with bad luck, which ends the moment the rocks are returned with proper reverence. This is a widespread and respected belief in the islands. Examples of feather cloaks may be seen at Honolulu's Bishop Museum.


16. THE KIKIKI KID (1/20/60)
Written by Robert J. Shaw; Directed by Andre deToth
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Jean Byron (Karen Ward), John Gabriel (Buddy Keene), Myrna Hansen (Ellie), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Doug Mossman (Marty), Andre Philippe (Paul)

Aspiring singer Buddy Keene is thrilled to learn that New York columnist Karen Ward is coming to town. He may not know her, but he has his ways. Buddy stages an accident with Miss Ward. Kim knows Keene is a kikiki--cheat. Kim saw him hide and then fake the accident. Tom tells Karen that she needn't apologize. He's sent her massive arrangement of flowers, though. He comes to her room and admits to being a big fan of hers. She's rather amused by the whole thing. He offers to show her the sights. They go swimming, drink Mai Tais, and he does some lousy impressions. He leaves but runs into Tom, who wants to know if her told Karen. He didn't but Tom does. She doesn't care. Tom goes to Buddy's club and follows his girl Ellie home and she shows him Buddy's extensive research on Karen. Buddy takes Karen to Hanauma Bay and she wants to know what's wrong. He admits he's a fake. She tells Tom she's going to marry him. He tells her about the girl Buddy lives with, Ellie. Karen goes to see her and tells her Buddy and Karen are going to marry. Ellie says nothing doing-she's his wife.

This is the first episode to use an aerial view of Waikiki. John Gabriel sings "If I Could Be with You One Hour Tonight," which was written for the 1930 film Ladies They Talk About and was interpolated into the 1949 Warner Bros. film Flamingo Road starring Joan Crawford. The use of songs owned by Warner Bros. in this particular show makes for some oddities--like the girls trying to do the hula to this one. Kikiki does mean "cheat." Connie Stevens and Andre Philippe sing "As Time Goes By," from, of course, Warners' Casablanca.
John Gabriel sings "La Vie en Rose," a French song that was made famous by Edith Piaf. Mack David wrote the English lyrics in 1950 and that version was made popular by Tony Martin.
Apartment Buildings used to be known by their names in many cities, but especially in Hawaii where many of them were as well-known as the hotels

17. THEN THERE WERE THREE (1/27/60)
Teleplay by Ken Englund and Gibson Fox, Story by Gibson Fox; Directed by William J. Hole Jr.
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Don Dubbins (as Jack Earl), Nancy Gates (Mary Moore), Joan Banks (Aunt "Birdie" Birdwell), Kathleen Freeman (Opal Jensen), Hollis Irving (Dolly Mumbro), Sam Buffington (Big Jim MacIntosh, Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Qyuon). Doug Mossman (Moke), Kimo Mahi (Muto), Lane Nakano (Taki), Felix Locher (Minister)Chiyo Tota (Receptionist)

Two shady characters watch as passengers debark from the Matsonia. Some friends of Cricket's have just arrived and Tracy and Tom are pressed into guide duty. It's her aunt Birdie, Mary Moore, Opal Jensen and Dolly Mumbro. The women are a bit much except for Mary Moore, whose grandfather has died and she's settling the estate. Mary meets her local lawyer, Jack Earl. He "happens" to be at a Japanese restaurant where she's with the gang, and though he tells her he told the girls where she went, he doesn't. After a visit to a nightclub, he asks her to go on his plane to Kilo. Tracy and Tom see them drive off, but don't know the situation until it's too late. And there's a body at the Ilima Club-Dennis MacIntosh. Mary's cousin. Cricket finds the will and there are two other heirs, Bruce and James MacIntosh, who share her inheritance. Earl breaks a wheel on landing. Big Jim meets them, and romance is in the air. Jack knows Big Jim is in on the murder of Dennis and he plans to kill the others, then steal the whole thing from Jack when he marries Mary.

The episode opens nicely with a shot of Aloha Tower then Boat Day with the Matsonia in port and Kent Girard's hula girls dancing on the pier. Opal says Mary's grandfather owned a pineapple plantation on Kilo, another island. There is no island by that name, and pineapple used to be grown on Lanai, Hawaii, Oahu and Maui. The only private island is Niihau, owned by the Robinson family, and it is off limits to everyone. The Hawaiians on Niihau live as their ancestors did before the missionaries came. The "private island" in this episode is huge-looks like the Kona side of the Big Island.
Poncie Ponce sings "Melana E" The hotel hula class is actually pretty accurate. He also sings "Sweet Georgia Brown." Note the nightclub Mary and Jack go to is the same one used in the last episode. Poncie and Connie sing "Ke Kali Ne Au," known as "The Hawaiian Wedding Song" in Hawaiian and English.
Note that the wrap-around windshield of Tracy's 1959 Ford convertible has been sprayed with a matte finish, probably so it wouldn't reflect the cameras and lights. The Japanese restaurant set is pretty elaborate for this show. The newspaper spells Macintosh without the capital I used in the credits.


18. SWORD OF THE SAMURAI (2/3/60)
Teleplau by Ed Jurist, Story by Gibson Fox; Directed by Jesse Hibbs
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: George Takei (Hiroshi Kawagani), James Yagi (Susumu), Barbara Luna (Michiko), Sam Vlahos (Billy Sajat), Teru Shimada (Noburu), Barbara Stuart (Miss Melani), Kari Shindo (The Waitress)

Hiroshi Kawagani talks to Tom about a a man, Noburu, who came to Hawaii in 1939 from Kyoto. Tom promises to look into the matter. First stop, Cricket's to copy the photograph and then Immigration. Records show a man named Miasaki and daughter came in from Kyoto. Tom figures the man changed his name and there must be a reason. Kim goes to Miasaki's flower shop and says the man is the same one in the photograph. Tom goes to ask Kawagani why they want this guy. He admires their swords and says there's little progress. Tracy suggests Tom cut these guys loose. They're trouble. Tom goes to see Miasaki and asks if the man has enemies who would want him dead. Wasn't his name Noburu? He says Noburu is dead. Tom shows him the photo and it gives the man pause. He served under Kawagani forces for a decade. He made a mistake, was supposed to commit Sepuku, but he fled. Tom swears he won't tell. Noburu says he's suffered for many years. He must accept the challenge of the Kawaganis.

There's a nice shot of the original Hawaiian Village sign before Hilton bought the property from Henry J. Kaiser. Connie Stevens sings "I'll Take Care of You." This show has a wonderful array of great Japanese actors in it. Teru Shimada appeared in many films in the 1940s and 1950s, then made a very successful career in television for himself. George Takei, of course, would go on to international fame in Star Trek.
Barbara Luna sings "I Gave My Love a Cherry" in English and Japanese. She was a child star on Broadway in musicals and played one of Emile's children in the film
South Pacific. She is of mixed ancestry, but not Japanese. The garden where Michiko takes Hiroshi is beautiful. If you wonder why she doesn't take him to the Valley of the Temples, seen so often in Hawaii Five-O, it hadn't been built yet.
Sajat's shirt in the final scene has been used on different men in at least three episodes of the first 18.


19. HONG KONG PASSAGE (2/10/60)
Written by Robert J. Shaw; Directed by Charles Haas
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Merry Anders (Lisa Barton), Whit Bissell (Jason Plain), Paul Langton (John O'Neil), Robert Gist (Barney Mitchell), Byron Foulger (Mr. Jennings), Louise Lorimer (Mrs. Jennings), Maria Tsien (Su Ling), Mark Tapscott (Ed Turner), James Hong (Key), Kei Chung (Wong), Doug Mossman (Moke), H.T. Tsiang (Kin San), Pat Miller (Tom Ingersoll).

Tracy is flying home from Hong Kong and is surprised to find a woman aboard that he knows as Lisa. She seems reluctant to acknowledge the connection, and the man with her practically threatens him. She admits that she knew Tracy "very well." An FBI agent meets Tracy in the lounge and Lisa Barton is his prisoner. Meanwhile, Tom enlists Kim to pick Tracy up at the airport at 5:30 am the next morning.
Back on the plane, the pilot and co-pilot disagree on the course-then suddenly the co-pilot radios in a mayday that the two starboard engines are on fire and they're ditching. He holds a gun on the pilot, then smashes the radio with it. In the back, a stewardess finds the FBI agent stabbed in the galley. He dies after asking Tracy to take care of Lisa Barton. The pilot's cabin is locked, the stewardess says they aren't answering the intercom. They ignore Tracy pounding on the door. Despite the stewardess keeping everyone calm, Lisa figures out the agent is dead. There are only ten aboard, and she claims he was her friend. His past with her was only four days long and after that, she fled to Hong Kong. She realizes the plane is descending. They're over land, but the pilot knows the runway is too short. The pilot does get the plane down, and Jason Plain, a man named Key, and the copilot hold guns on the rest, herding them to the lounge. The hatch is opened, and the passengers debarked via a ladder. They insist Tracy get off, but keep Lisa onboard. They're herded into an empty shack. Lisa is taken into another one. The pilot surmises they're on a small island in the Philippines, and tells them about the phony mayday call. The co-pilot tells Tracy they're going to the Chinese mainland. What happens after that, he doesn't know.

This is the first "bottle show" of the season. At least once in a season, most shows do an episode with only one location and a small cast. This not only saves on budget, allowing more money for stories that need it, it is usually shot faster since there is only one set to light. The airport scenes are all process shots, easily and cheaply done on a soundstage.
Connie Stevens sings "This Is a Very Special Day."
The view of the airplane flying is a small model on wires. This was the cheap method of showing such a thing at the time. Later, the airlines furnished footage of their fleet planes flying under various conditions, and then special effects took over. This flight is "non-scheduled," according to the announcement, which means it might have been a charter but is explained as a means to get the aircraft to Honolulu because of weather. Before the cost of fuel became prohibitive, airlines would sometimes ferry empty aircraft in this way, but usually took on passengers, for obvious reasons. The last airline that served the smaller islands of the South Pacific was Air Micronesia, operated by Continental Airlines. Most of the islands were only long enough to handle the length of a runway which could barely land a DC-3 and when those planes were retired in the 1960s, most of them now have no air service at all.

Guests: Roberta Haynes (Alice Thomas), Frank Albertson (Paul Charring), Donald Lawton (George Crews), Robert Clarke (John Miles), Ethel Kuulei Reiman (Mama-san), Keone (Taro Fujito), Clifford Kawada (Mike Morada), Linda Wong (Teresa), Roxane Brooks (Airlines Clerk)

21. FATAL CRUISE (2/24/60)
Written by Robert J. Shaw; Directed by Andre deToth
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Shirley Knight (Ginger Martin), Kasey Rogers (Verna Collins), Gary Conway (Johnny Martin), Richard Crane (Greg Collins), Linda Lawson (Tiki), Stevan Darrell (Mickey), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Carolyn Komant (Kini), Doug Mossman (Moke)

Ginger Martin appeals to Tom for help locating her husband. He goes to see Johnny Martin on his boat and he has a demanding woman on board. They go out to sea. When they finally return, she demands he be ready to go in the morning whenever she wants. Tom goes on board, Johnny insists his wife is in San Francisco, Tom says she's here. Johnny got out of the service after two years, and has been trying to earn some money and Mrs. Collins is paying him $150 a week. He's doing this for her. Ginger, who's staying with Cricket, bears the brunt of Cricket's jealousy over Tom, though she insists she just wants her husband. At sea, Verna opens the wine and when Johnny says he's through, he's going back to his wife, she laughs. Tom assures Ginger that Johnny will be there that night. The next morning, the boat's found with Verna Collins dead. Johnny said he passed out and when he found her, he reported it. What he doesn't know is that Verna's husband came aboard and killed her. A guy at the boatyard says Mr. Collins was originally Verna's deckhand before she married him, but that now he goes out on the boat with a pretty girl named Tiki.
Poncie Ponce sings "I'm Looking Over a Four-Leaf Clover." Connie Stevens sings "You Do Something to Me."

22. DANGER ON CREDIT (3/2/60)
Teleplay by Lowell Barrington, Story by Hugh Benson & Jim Barnett; Directed by Robert B. Sinclair
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Gary Vinson (Somerset Jones), Suzanna Lloyd (Lois Brindisi), Theo Marcuse (Arnie Padilla), John Baer (Victor Brindisi), Robert Kino (Garage Manager), David Renard (Eric Sandor), Leon Tyler (Jimmie Branscomb), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Doug Mossman (Moke), Michael Raffeto (Papa Haone)

Department store magnate Somerset Jones is flirting with Cricket. But is he who he says he is? The real owner of the department store, Thomas. Gaylord, is elsewhere. And they're there on a budget employee tour. But when a man named Victor Brindisi buys him a drink and leaves without his credit card, Jones uses it for dinner with Cricket. He's a little loud when he tips the waiter and a bald man obviously believes he's Brandisi. When they get into Kim's cab, they're followed and it becomes a hair-raising chase. They talk to Tracy and Tom about it. They think it was simply someone who got sleepy or was driving badly. He and Cricket are saying goodnight when Baldy tries to run them down. Tom comes out and shoots at the Mercury. He returns the rental car and his name is C.K. Jackson. Jackson pays a man to fly home using his name (his real name is Arnie Padilla). Danny checks out Brindisi, who's from Chicago. He learns Brindisi was on his honeymoon and a hit man was sent out after him. Victor and his wife are on the Big Island under another name. Meanwhile, Padilla puts on a wig and a corset, gets his gun and stalks Jones and Cricket.

Connie Stevens sings "What Do They Do on a Rainy Night in Rio?" In this episode, they're using a paper credit card that looks like a parking receipt. Credit cards at the time were metal and about the size of military dogtags, with the same technique used to identify the cardholder. They had a paper back for your signature. This looks more like a room identification which a hotel guest could use instead of signing the bill, but it was not ever in widespread use. In the later 1960s, there was an arrangement on the Matson ships where you could give someone a ship credit, but it was held by the purser and you signed each bill as you would in a hotel. Rental cars used to have a flat rental fee and charge by the mile driven (this included gasoline, which was less than 20 cents a gallon at the time).

23. BEQUEST OF ARTHUR GOODWIN (3/9/60)
Teleplay by Gibson Fox and Sam Ross, Story by Jack Dillon; Directed by Everett Sloan
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Fay Wray (Amelia Goodwin), Andrea King (Marta Willis), Herbert Rudley (Jim Hager), Carolyn Craig (Janet Goodwin), Don Burnett (Steven Saint), Al Hodge (Arthur Goodwin), Lloyd Kino (John Kawasaki), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Doug Mossman (Moke), Jane Chang (Mrs. Loma), Judy Dan (Chinese Secretary)

Arthur Goodwin comes home and his wife tells him Marta Willis insisted she give her husband a divorce. She pulls a gun on him. Then their daughter Janet interrupts and he falls down the stairs to his death. Amelia calls Tracy for an appointment the next day. Mrs. Goodwin was an actress who married Arthur to become a doyen of society. They've put out a story that his death was an accident. There's a woman at the office, Marta Willis, who inherited control of the company stock, though Amelia and Janet get the income. Amelia despises her and wants this situation changed. She claims the will is fraudulent. His lawyer says it seems proper. Mrs. G. announces she'll protest it. It was drawn up by the corporate lawyer, Mr. Kawasaki. Marta Willis is working hard when Jim Hager comes in and proposes to her. He helped convince Arthur that control belonged in the hands of management, not family, and he wants his share, through marriage. Tracy goes to see Kawasaki, who admits he now feels the terms are a grave mistake. He fears Mrs. Willis is trying to ruin the business. He doesn't know why. Jim overhears this conversation and reports to Marta. Tracy waits to see her and Jim threatens Kawasaki. A minute later, he's out the window and on the pavement several stories below. Tracy doubts it was suicide. He tells Amelia that Marta is ruining the business deliberately, and she agrees. He also wants to know why her daughter opposes his continuing on the case. She's positive her mother killed her father.

Connie Stevens sings "Somebody Loves Me" and "Who Cares?" The colonial edifice used for Goodwin's house was a standing set at the studio and is used in numerous episodes. The famous Auntie Mame staircase also appears in numerous episodes. Goodwin's funeral arrangements must have been the fastest in history for him to be buried the next morning.

24. BIRTHDAY BOY (3/16/60)
Written by Robert J. Shaw; Directed by Mark Sandrich Jr.
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Troy Donahue (Jim McLaren), Fay Spain (Honey Shaw), John Hubbard (Gordon McLaren), Wilton Graff (John McLaren) Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Doug Mossman (Moke)

Wealthy Jim McLaren (heir to the pineapple magnate) is way drunk in the Shell Bar and Tom takes him outside. He passes out in the lobby while a man and a woman make plans. He gives her the key to McLaren's car and sends her off to flirt with him as if she knows him. He drives and she giggles. A cop pulls them over. His father wants Tom to straighten him out. He's only got a month before his 21st birthday, when either he will come into control of the company or his uncle takes over. Tom says the agency just doesn't do that kind of work. He'll only talk to the woman he was in the car with, Honey Shaw, who's bad news. She's in Jimmy's apartment and Tom knocks the boy flat when he tries to fight. Later, her cohort Gordon McLaren (John's brother) gives her some knockout drops to use that night. McLaren takes it easy that night, drinking only coffee. She finally puts the drops in his coffee. He drinks it. He gets groggy on the road, then passes out. She's ready and stops the car. Gordon is behind them and pours some booze down Jimmy's throat and on his clothes. He's arrested and tells Tom it's a frame. Tom believes him because his uncle is involved in a scheme to take over the company.

Music in the Shell Bar includes "What Is This Thing Called Love?" Troy Donahue bellows a pseudo school song called "All Hail, Honolulu." Connie Stevens later sings the whole song, and it was probably written by the music staff at the studio. There is no school called "Honolulu-anything." Connie Stevens also sings "You're An Old Smoothie."
The matchstick blinds are the only tropical thing about Honey's apartment. The show didn't get the real local look until the second season, as they built flats and sets for the show. "The Waimanalo Road toward Kailua" is kind of accurate, both are on the windward side of the island. But the main drag through Waimanalo is Kalanianaole Highway.
The double row fox stole Honey wears was an extremely popular style at the time, but not in the Honolulu heat and humidity. Mainland women would take a fur stole on the ship for dressy nights, but rarely used them on the island

26. KIM QUIXOTE (3/30/60)
Teleplay by William Leslie, Story by Gibson Fox; Directed by Mark Sandrich Jr.
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Mala Powers (Essie Danforth), Don Gordon (Mickey Grill), Ezra Stone (Rabbit), Dale Ishimoto (Sgt. Leo Aoki), Laya Raki (Betta Dudoit), Carolyn Komant (Kini), Doug Mossman (Moke), Michael Harris (Cass Robbins)

At the airport a man named Mickey puts another man in Kim's cab…who's dead. Mickey's confederate is upset that Robbins was killed in a cab, but Mickey shows him the suitcase full of money he got from Robbins. Essie Danforth sees Tom because someone she expected from the mainland hasn't arrived, and it's Dr. Cass Robbins-her fiancé. He gives her the bad news. She wants him to find out who killed him. She says he was a widower and he traveled a lot. They met in San Francisco six weeks ago. Her father had just died and they shared their loss. She had to come to Hawaii to dispose of her fathers property in Hawaii, he proposed and they came, though he stopped in L.A. on the way The Seargent says Cass was not a doctor and was a con man who worked with Mickey Grill. Moke finds Grill and Tom deserts Cricket and Essie. Kim's got a new girl and she's involved in the whole thing. Rabbit has her tied up and when Kim has to go to a police lineup, he won't identify Grill.

Poncie Ponce sings "For You," Connie Stevens sings "It Had To Be You" and the Muzak at the hotel plays "Poor Butterfly." When Connie's singing to Tom, he is sitting next to someone at the bar, but when the camera's on Connie, there's no one next to him. One of the cabbies tells Kim to go to Blackpoint Road. This street is the toniest section of Kahala, the Beverly Hills of Hawaii. Numerous celebrities have lived on Blackpoint, though it is a cul de sac, not a through street, as the cabbie says.

27. THE LADY'S NOT FOR TRAVELING (4/6/60)
Written by Sam Ross; Directed by Jesse Hibbs
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Peggy McCay (as Grace Stanley), Phillip Terry (John Ryerson), Richard Shannon (David Branch), Philip Ahn (Mr. Kwong), Doug Mossman (Moke), Rand Brooks (Agent), Robert Okazaki (Fisherman), Rush Williams (Roy Hondine), Stella Lynn (Desk Clerk), William Leicester (Cartwright), Andre Phillipe (M.C.)

A State department official intercepts Grace Stanley in Honolulu on her way to Hong Kong. He ominously tells her that because of her boyfriend Carl Kingston's disappearance, she should stay in Hawaii then go home. He takes her passport, saying she could fall into the hands of the Red Chinese, as Carl did. She checks into the Hawaiian Village and meets Tracy. She asks him if he'll do something "not quite legal." He wants to know why. Then Tracy meets another man who claims to be from the State Dept. A Chinese man is watching them--and listening. Branch wants to know why he went to Grace's room. Carl Kingston is defecting from Red China, and the State Dept. wants it kept very, very quiet as it's extremely risky. If Tracy can just keep her in Honolulu, they'll bring him to her if they can. Tracy goes to see her and promises he'll get her to Hong Kong soon if she'll be patient. The Chinese man tells Ryerson they can sneak Grace into Red China by submarine-this will get her there, but she'd never get out. He tells her she can go now, and implies this is what Tracy set up for her. Tracy and Branch find out she's gone in the morning, and the find out she left on a small boat with two men. But David Branch isn't the real Branch, who's dead on the beach.

There's a lot of United Airlines footage at the beginning of the episode. Hundine tells Grace Stanley to cable him from Tokyo. At the time, international telephone rates were astronomical and the preferred method of communication at the time was a cablegram.
Connie Stevens sings "Looking for a Boy" by George and Ira Gershwin, introduced by Queenie Smith in the Broadway musical
Tip Toes in 1925. Poncie Ponce sings "Meleana E."

28. MURDER ANYONE? (4/13/60)
Teleplay by Robert C. Dennis and W. Hermanos, Story by Jerry David & Jim Barnett ; Directed by William J. Hole Jr.
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Julie Adams (Sara Crane), Ray Danton (Barry Logan), Richard Garland (Mike Cornell), Herbert Rudley (David Crane), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Doug Mossman (Moke)Gayla Graves (Jean Miller), Sam Rawlins (Doorman).

There's a wild rainstorm when Barry Logan goes to a pay phone to call Sara Crane; he's abusive, but her husband David picks up the phone and the man hangs up. David goes to Tom and says there have been at least four of these calls. Tom agrees to have their calls monitored-and arranges a guard for her too. Sara gets in Kim's cab and he reports he's taken her to Diamond Head, where she meets Barry Logan, and the meeting is passionate. She warns him not to call again. He's a tennis star who also works for her husband's company. Cricket has the hots for him, but his game's off and Crane soon finds out about the affair with his wife. He confronts Sara and she says she's in love with him and she wants a divorce. He won't give her up. Barry forgets all about love and is furious that her husband will dump him from his company. Then Crane shows up with a gun.

Connie Stevens sings "The Man I Love," which was written by George and Ira Gershwin for Adele Astaire to sing in the 1924 musical Lady Be Good but was cut. It became famous in jazz instrumental versions recorded in Europe, and was interpolated into the Warner Bros. biography of George Gershwin, 1945's Rhapsody in Blue and was sung by Gogi Grant, dubbing for Susan Hayward in the story of singer Helen Morgan. Morgan made it her signature song. Stevens also sings "Dancing on the Ceiling." The ramshackle shack on the beach is about the most unlikely place for a phone booth possible. Barry Logan says he'll "go back to the states," a common misnomer at the time. Hawaii only became a state the year before this was shot.
Any writing credit which includes the name "W. Hermanos," (W. Brothers) was shot during the Writers Guild strike of 1960. Warner's re-used scripts from its other series, changing only the character names and setting to fit whatever show it was revised for. Secretaries at the time remember a Maverick script, for instance, being used on this show with the names simply crossed out. It is illegal for a writer to write a script during a strike. Warner Bros. technically owned the scripts already written for other shows and could have used them at will, but executive producer William T. Orr felt that the original writers deserved compensation and said that they had a man who would arrange clandestine meetings with those writers whose work was being reused, and pay them under the table. This was still technically illegal, but the studio could have used their work in any event.

29. TYPHOON (4/27/60)
Teleplay by Ellis Kadison and W Hermanos, Story by Wm. T. Orr Directed by Mark Sandrich Jr.
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Jean Allison (Cora Demming), Mary Tyler Moore (Susan Hart), Fredd Wayne (Ed Demming), Robert Colbert (Johnny Kane), Bill Quinn (Col. Conway), John Cliff (Fish), Doug Mossman (Moke), Clifford Arashi (Boatman)

Tracy, Cricket and Tom take a local boat to another side of the island, but they're stopped by Mr. Conway, who says "no trespassing," but Cricket knows him and he invites them to stay at his house. They went to surf, but brought luggage to stay the night. Small craft warnings are posted. But four other people in a motor cruiser manage to avoid the Coast Guard and get away from the island. One of them killed a man during a robbery. But what are they headed into? A storm, and they end up at Conway's in distress. In the morning, the radio's been destroyed. Johnny, the one who killed the bank guard, smashed the radio, and the others are angry that he was so obvious. Conway reminds the rest that he has the only gun on the property. Conway thinks there might be a weapon in his dead son's effects which are in the attic. Meanwhile, Kane comes on to Susan and Tom takes him on and it becomes a brawl. Tracy looks in Hart's footlocker and finds a gun. But Conway calls his bluff.

They talk about Kona Winds, which does not necessarily mean a typhoon--it is any weather which comes from the south, from the plains of the Big Island. The shots of the motor cruiser leaving port are from Southern California. Conway's house in the establishing shots looks a lot like the old James B. Castle residence, Kainalu, located at San Souci beach at the base of Diamond Head. The property now belongs to the Elks Club and is occupied by their clubhouse and the Outrigger Canoe Club. Castle was a founder of Castle & Cooke, which controlled all the sugar cane on the island. Connie Stevens sings "Do, Do, Do," by the Gershwins, which was written for the 1926 musical Oh, Kay! and was used in the Warner Bros. picture Tea For Two, 1950.

30. SHADOW OF THE BLADE (5/4/60)
Teleplay by W. Hermanos and Howard Browne, Story by Howard Browne; Directed by Alvin Ganzer
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Sharon Hugueny(Maria Van Ott), Lisa Lu (Lily [Quong]), Joan Vohs (Helene Corbett), Fred Beir (Bill Corbett),Abraham Sofaer (Administrateur), Gregory Gay (Jacob Van Ott), Robin Hughes (Bryan Semple), Alberto Morin (Jean Martín), Felix Locher (Pascal), Doug Mossman (Moke).

Tracy goes to Fiji regarding a man who escaped their prison shortly before he was to be killed. He checks into the local hotel, which houses a strange assortment of people, including the proprietor's daughter who is not supposed to speak with strangers. He's posing as a journalist. He asks the local police chief about Bill Corbett, the man who has escaped. He's supposed to have killed Jean Renard [a character name from Warner's Casablanca]. A lovely woman, Lily Quong, knows Steele is a private eye. She asks if he knows Bill Corbett and he says he does. She inherited Renard's copra plantation. Later, Steele's knocked out and warned to go home on the next plane. Corbett's wife is there and Tracy's working for her. She's positive Bill isn't guilty. Tracy goes after painter Semple, who he knows is the one who used a blackjack on him. Tracy thinks Lily Quong is behind it all. He owes Corbett-he saved Tracy's life ten years ago.

During the first scene, the popular French song, "The River Seine" is played. The English lyrics were added in 1953. Connie Stevens sings "Tea For Two." The gated establishment (the hotel) Tracy goes into is the set for the Absinthe House and the offices of Randolph and Calhoun of Bourbon Street Beat. "La Vie en Rose" is played later.

31. DEAD RINGER (5/11/60)
Teleplay by W. Hermanos, Story by Roy Huggins; Directed by Mark Sandrich Jr.
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Dianne Foster (Lola Richmond), Warren Stevens (Harry Sanford), Sammee Tong (Mr. Nishimaka), Yoski Kiuchi (Mrs. Nishimaka), Lloyd Kino (Okada), Ralph Hanalei (Teo), Doug Mossman (Moke), Andre Philippe (M.C.), John Verros (Lt. Juan Gomez), Tiki Santos (Skeeter).

Tom meets Lola Richmond at a bar. She finds it hard to explain and wants to know if he takes cases outside of Hawaii. Is he free for the next two or three weeks? She wants him to go on a ship with her to Macao. Her husband Michael's there and she has to deliver a large statuette of Kuan Yin to him. He asks for $2,500 plus expenses and she agrees. She's afraid of the man her husband's doing business with. He took some jade which was hidden in the Kuan Yen. They were supposed to take the ship together, but he went on ahead. He cabled her and it's obvious he wants someone to think he's on the boat with her. He looks a lot like Tom. Can he stand in for him? A man steals the note Tom leaves for Tracy, and the Genoa Maru sails. She's a tub but the accommodations are first class. However, Mr. "Michael Richmond" is relegated to the sofa. Harry Sanford, who stole the note, is on board and he and Lola are very cozy. He plans to kill Tom tonight. Man overboard. But it's not Tom, it's a man who is blackmailing Lola. Her husband's already dead.

Connie Stevens sings "Zing Went the Strings of My Heart" and "A Very Special Day," and there's a really good fire dancer. Dianne Foster wears a popular style of cocktail dress while at sea--a bubble skirt. Some were just looped fabric, others ended in a tight sheath hem, as hers does. The ship used at the dock and as a model in rough seas doesn't have nearly as many decks as Mrs. Richmond climbs on her way to the purser's office. Of course, she's really going to meet Sanford, since most Purser's offices are not on the boat deck. Also, restaurants are usually on the lowest decks possible for stability and Tom is shown climbing down from this one. Lola's flowered coat is a disaster-it almost exactly matches the hotel drapes and clashes badly with the intricate woodwork in the restaurant.

32. LITTLE BLALAH (5/18/60)
Teleplay by W.Hermanos, Story by Stanley Niss; Directed by Charles Haas
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Andra Martin (Sally [Kramer]), Mike Road (Gavin McLeod), Wendell Holmes (Sam Perkins), Robert Ivers (Bobby Kramer), Paul Birch (John Kramer), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Paul Dubov (Tony Miller), Doug Mossman (Moke), Nana Sumi (Nurse).

Bobby Kramer owes $6,000 in gambling debts; and this isn't the first time. Sally and Gavin raised $10,000 to bail him out before this. Gavin is engaged to Sally, daughter of the head of Kramer Construction and sister of Bobby, and he's getting pressure from the old man to take care of Bobby. He's only doing it for Sally's sake. Someone breaks in to Kramer Construction, takes $6,000 from the safe and kills the security guard. John Kramer's sick, and they don't tell him everything. But he trusts Tracy, who knows the car leaving the scene is owned by Bobby. Manager of the company, Sam Perkins, is a long-time employee and involves himself in Tracy's investigation, but he is hiding a 30-year-old secret.

Mike Road plays a character named Gavin McLeod. The actor of that name was only starting out in television at the time. Ponce Ponce sings "Cuddle Up a Little Closer," which was introduced in a Broadway operetta in 1908. Gordon MacRae sang it in the Warner film On Moonlight Bay. "Blalah" was the accepted transliteration for the Pidgen English "brother." It has since morphed into urban abbreviations such as "bra," "bro" and others, but in the old-style Pidgen it is now transliterated "braddah."

33. ASSIGNMENT: MANILA (5/25/60)
Teleplay by W. Hermanos, Story by Douglas Heyes; Directed by Alvin Ganzer
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Lisa Gaye (Saluda Razon), Janet Lake (Millie Doyle), Anthony Eustrel (Bradshaw), Robert Kino (Ling Po), Carleton Young (Commander Kirk), Frank Gerstle (Major Dunham), Leon Lontoc (Pedro Vallejo), Andre Philippe (M.C.), Kem Dibbs (Wally Martin)

There's a smuggling operation going on in Manila. Two men argue over a deal gone wrong. One man in a tuxedo--Wally Martin--emerges and knocks down a man who's been following him, then is shot.
In Honolulu, a group of military men talk about hiring Tom. They go to the office and tell Tom Wally's brother is dead and is unknown in Manila. They want Tom to go undercover and claim Wally's nightclub. Pedro Vallejo is head waiter at the Club Vallejo. Chinese agents are desperate to acquire hard currency and there's a thriving black market. The beautiful Saluda Razon greets Tom as Hank Martin, and offers her condolences but no information. She introduces Ling Po of the Far East Trading Company. Bradshaw, the man Wally argued with before being killed, fills Tom in on the shadier aspects of the business. Pedro asks Tom if he made progress with Bradshaw--he says it's complicated. He also tells him that Wally and Saluda were not close. An attractive blonde named Millie Doyle offers to show Tom the sights and they get home very late. The next day, it's cocktails on the beach. Millie says Wally was kind to her, but she's obviously grieving. Saluda's very jealous and says Millie's no good. Wally didn't listen to her and neither does Tom. Millie's in the pay of Ling Po. She claims she's through and has found out nothing. Ling tells her she has 24 hours to find out if he'll do business with Red China.

There is a large Filipino population in Hawaii. On Oahu, it is centered in Waipahu, where a beautiful new Filipino cultural center has been built. The military brass talk about a MATS flight, which stands for Military Air Transport, and would be one of the only flights to go to Honolulu from Hong Kong with stops on Midway, Wake and Guam. Connie Stevens and Poncie Ponce sing "On Moonlight Bay."

SEASON TWO, 1960-61:

34. I WED THREE WIVES (9/14/60)
Teleplay by Hugo Walters, Story by Ralph Madiera; Directed by Alvin Ganzer
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Ray Danton (Mark Hamilton), Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. (as Stuart Bailey), Roger Smith (as Jeff Spencer), Kasey Rogers (Mavis Hamilton), Lenore Roberts (Sharon Hamilton), Jeanne Baird (Nora Hamilton), Tommy Farrell (Cy Bliss), Barney Phillips (Henry Bunker), Doug Mossman (Moke) Rush Williams (Hondine).

Crossover episode with 77 Sunset Strip. The title is a parody on a gritty film drama, I Led Three Lives. The new season opens with new credits--Eisley and Conrad surfing, Stevens in a process shot in an outrigger canoe and Poncie Ponce in an inner tube. It is obvious that all three principals were shot surfing, but Connie's hair is wet and unattractive, and it's understandable she wouldn't want a closeup looking like that at the top of every episode. This scene was shot on the annual trip to Oahu for second unit and establishing shot work. Robert Conrad already knew how to surf, but he was impressed at how well his co-stars did on the longboards. The soundstage hotel rooms look more like the real ones at the Hawaiian Village and a lot more modern furniture is used. The show was a hit and the budget was probably increased. Connie Stevens sings "Breezin' Along with the Breeze" which was popularized by Warner star Al Jolson, and interpolated into the 1944 Warner film Shine On, Harvest Moon and the 1953 musical about Jolson, The Jazz Singer.

43. GIRL ON A STRING (11/16/60)
Teleplay by Anthony Eisley, Story by Anthony Eisley & Marge Stapleton; Directed by Alvin Ganzer
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Linda Lawson (Mona Lynn), John Alderman (Michael Dalli), Edgar Stehli (Louis Dalli), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Joan Staley (Sandra), Doug Mossman (Moke), Carolyn Komant (Kini) Andre Philippe (Paul)The Bob Baker Marionettes (Themselves)

Michael Dalli has girl trouble. His stage partner Sandra wants her salary before they open. His father makes the marionettes they use. Dalli's wife gives him the money to pay his assistant but she goes into her dressing room and there's a marionette dressed like her on the couch with its neck broken. She flees in terror and is hit by a car. Tracy is hired to work on the case and Cricket thinks Michael is pretty smooth. He's world famous, but he's only opening in a second-rate club. Mona confronts Mike about his wife Tina, whose doll was smashed before she died. Then Kim tells Tracy that the Mona puppet has been strangled with a stocking.

Connie Stevens sings "I May Be Wrong," and a fire dancer performs. Poncie Ponce sings "Don't Sweatheart Me." Bob Conrad and Tony Eisley surf, which is an extended take of the ones shot for the opening for the second season of all the principals surfing. You can tell The Aloha Hut is a second-rate club by the fact that it also sells bait! There is a mention of watching the submarine races in Hanauma Bay. This was a common joke about going to lovers' lanes at the time. There's an elevator girl at Tina's hotel. In 1960, there were still elevators that were not self service.

44. KAKUA WOMAN (11/23/60)
Written by Robert J. Shaw; Directed by Robert B. Sinclair
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Mike Road (Ed Grimes), Stella Stevens (Carol Judd), Anita Loo (Dora Grimes), MP, John Zaccaro (Pete Nobriga), John Zaremba (John [Jim in dialogue] Ramsey), S. John Launer (Doctor), Mel Gaines (Marty; same as early Mossman character?)

Mel tells Tom that a cop friend was killed taking a prisoner, Ed Grimes to prison on Maui. Grimes is at large in Honolulu and he's sharp-he can't just be caught, he must be outsmarted. Tom knows him best. Grimes is at the docks, talking a friend into taking him on a ship. But he's afraid of a search, and goes overboard, where he's picked up by his wife. She visited him every day and she wrote him tons of letters. He wrote to his girlfriend Carol Judd. She takes him to an unknown cave which she's furnished secretly. He tries to get rid of her, but she's nothing if not loyal. But he wants to get to the girlfriend in Hilo, so that's where Tom goes. Carol's really not wild about hiding out in Tahiti, which is Ed's plan. Besides, she's spent the money ($2,000) he left her, which is supposed to buy their passage. He killed a man for that money.

CS sings "Embraceable You" with Poncie Ponce and Tony Eisley chiming in. Stella Stevens hums "Breezin' Along with the Breeze."

45. THE CONTENDERS (11/30/60)
Written by Sam Ross; Directed by Edward Dein
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Myrna Fahey (Laura Steck), Frank De Kova (Pete Dailey), Jimmy Murphy (Joey Steck), Weaver Levy (George Moon), Warren Oates (Al), Keone (Duke Gallipo), Doug Mossman (Moke), Jerry Barclay (Dado), Michael Pataki (Bobo).

At Marty's gym, Kim's cousin is working out and Cricket's taking pictures. The Friday night bout is being televised. Joey Steck is a hot property and his manager wants to buy insurance from Moon, who's Duke's manager, Pete Dailey. He wants Duke to throw the fight. Moon says no way, but Pete tells him to ask. Meanwhile, the Joey's sister is having a fling with Tom. She's worried about her brother; something's bothering him. Moon tells Pete again that the Duke won't throw the fight. Pete takes another tack-he'll take over the Duke's contract, give Moon a lot of dough, and he'll take 75% of the winnings. That night, Joey and Laura are at the Shell Bar, but a couple of goons almost turn it into a brawl. Pete tells Joey that he's on his own this time-his previous fights were fixed. This time, Pete says he's on his own.

When Kim refers to his "cousin," The Duke, who's gonna be world's champion, it's a twisted reference to the most famous beachboy, swimmer and surfer, Duke Kahanamoku. The bout advertisement on the gym wall refers to Bishop Auditorium. Charles Bishop, who was married to Bernice Pauahi, the last of the alii, ran Bishop Bank (which became First Hawaiian) and founded Bishop Museum, so it's an appropriate name for an auditorium. Connie Stevens sings "Do What You Do." Boxing was a big draw during the 1950s and 1960s in Honolulu, at the Civic Auditorium (shown in the episode), which has since been torn down.

46. SWAN SONG FOR A HERO (12/7/60)
Teleplay by William Bruckner, Story by Leonard Brown; Directed by Leslie H. Martinson
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Richard Long (Rex Randolph), Edward Byrnes (Kookie), John van Dreelen (Otto Von Helgren), Robert Lowery (Abner Dexter), Jean Allison (Mary Potts), Anna Lee (Holly Morrison), Dan Tobin (Timmy Yarborough), Paul Dubov (Philip Houser), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Doug Mossman (Moke), Charles Arnt (Fleems), Sue England (Receptionist).
Otto Von Helgren demands to see both Tracy and Tom. He Is about to be investigated by Abner Dexter of Pacific Resources and he wants to do the check first. He claims to be the "only man" who can build and sale a raft to prove early migration across the Pacific. The company he wants to finance him is the estate of an oceanographer. Von Helgren proves elusisve. No photo exists of him and when Cricket tries to take one, he ruins her camera. Tracy takes one with a miniature camera and Cricket is attacked while developing it.

Dialogue: Kookie to Cricket, "Statehood, that's what did it." Hawaii had just become a state the year before. Connie Stevens sings "This Is My Lucky Day." Von Helgren's proposal has become fact. The Hokulea was built in Hawaii and has re-created the voyages of the early Polynesians. When Kim swears at another cab driver, it's the real deal; this is true Hawaiian swearing. Crossover episode with 77 Sunset Strip.

47. THE MONEY BLOSSOM (12/14/60)
Teleplay by Sam Ross, Story by Don Tait and Harry Poppe. Jr.; Directed by Edward Dein
Regulars: Robert Conrad, Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Gerald Mohr (Martin Haney), Jean Willes (Olivia McKay), Olive Sturgess (Nina McKay), John Baer (Alan Terry), Bill Quinn (Eric McKay), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Doug Mossman (Moke).

McKay Horticultural, in the person of Eric McKay, hires Tom to protect a valuable orchid he's developed. Tom puts on a 24-hour guard, and leaves. McKay and his partner, Alan Terry, fight. McKay's been offered $40,000 for the plant, but he knows it will be worth much more once he's developed the strain several dozen times. Meanwhile, McKay's second wife is having a fling with Martin Haney, and they have a plan to kill her husband. Martin plans to have Alan take the fall. Martin kills McKay and his daughter Nina discovers the body, also the guard, who's been knocked out. The orchid's gone.

Connie Stevens sings "When Your Lover Has Gone." The show either must have rented some really nice orchids because the scenes in the greenhouse are wonderful and make you wish the show was in color.

Connie Stevens sings "You're Getting to be a Habit with Me."

50. MADE IN JAPAN (1/4/61)
Teleplay by Ed Jurist, Story by Theodore Roscoe ; Directed by Frank Bauer
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Grant Williams (Greg MacKenzie), Anne Whitfield (Jennie), Frank Ferguson (Captain Joe [Taggert/Elias Conroy]), Brad Dexter (MacKay),Russ Conway (Boyle), Ralph Bell (Burney), Kasey Rogers (Marilyn), Tammy Windsor (Melanie), Tiki Santos (Mr. Hokalawi), Napua Woodd (Mrs. Hokalawi), Reiko Sato (Cashier), Gene Benton (Jackson), Louis P. Akau (Cab Driver).

Kim gets a counterfeit $20 bill from Tracy, which the secret service is interested in. Meanwhile, a salty old ship captain is packing up despite his granddaughter's protestations. He's got 41 boats, and a man is interested, but it's obvious that he knows nothing about the small boat business. He thinks the government is after him. He made some treasury plates a long time ago and Jenny begs him to let her call Tom. He will hide out in the meantime, but the curious man abducts him. Kim takes Greg, detective from the mainland, to see Jennie, who is very frightened for her grandfather. He was in China when the war started. The Japanese interred him and forced him to make counterfeit money. After the war, he went to Hawaii and settled down. Suddenly, the $20 notes are being passed and her grandfather is terrified his work has been recognized by the Treasury men. Greg calls a contact who says Elias Conway hasn't been heard from for years-they're not looking for him. But his truck's still at the shop and she's very worried. His abductors say they're taking him to a lab. Conroy was a counterfeiter before the war. The difference in his bills is that a window in the White House has a light in it. But the ones that are showing up are pristine, not 20 years old. Conroy's abductors are determined he's going back into the counterfeit business, or else.

Connie Stevens sings "It's You or No One for Me." Because of the fear of just this story's eventuality--that the Japanese would circulate counterfeit U.S. money during the war in Hawaii, all legitimate bills used in the territory were stamped "Hawaii" in large letters on them for the duration. Somewhere at about this point in this season, the contract with Ford to furnish cars for the show ended and suddenly, everyone is driving Pontiacs. Pontiacs were also used on SurfSide 6. Grant Williams' appearance in this and half a dozen episodes could have been an attempt at a spinoff. In any case, it didn't work. Williams just didn't have the sparkle of the leads in the four 77 Sunset Strip clones. If you think you know Pidgen English, try un'erstan da kine talk wit da Hokalawi ohana. Some of the words are in the lexicon at the end.

51. A TOUCH OF VELVET (1/11/61)
Teleplay by Erna Lazarus, Story by Von Stuart; Directed by Edward Dein
Regulars: Anthony Eisley, Connie Stevens, Poncie Ponce
Guests: Grant Williams (as Greg MacKenzie), Dick Davalos (Mickey Marden), Sharon Hugueny (Ellie Collins), Robert Hutton (Raymond Brewster), Catherine McLeod (Mrs. [Doris] Moreland-Smith), Laurie Mitchell (Peaches Melba), Doug Mossman (Moke), Mel Prestidge (Lt. Danny Quon), Clarke Gordon (Gordon Montagne), Sterling Mossman and "The Barefoot Gang" (Themselves).

An art magazine wants a story (with photos by Cricket) about a painting by one Gordon Montagne, local alcoholic. He's slightly panicked when he hears the news. His gallery owner brings $50, saying he didn't even deduct his commission. The rumor is he got $1,500 for it. They fight, Gordon's killed. His model arrives and is confused. Tracy hurries to the police. He heard someone named Mickey was with him when he called. Mrs. Doris Moreland-Smith summons Tracy. She was Montagne's sponsor. She introduces her fiancé, Raymond Brewster, the gallery owner who killed Montagne. He says he took the money to Gordon and left, but didn't tells the cops because he's going through a nasty divorce. One of his models is Peaches Melba, a dancer at the Purple Grotto. Tracy goes to see her; the place is a real dive. She like Gordon, but he let her go. Meanwhile, Mickey finds Gordon's model, Ellie. She's blind but he doesn't realize it and is sure she saw him.

Sterling Mossman and his group were highly popular local entertainers. They sing a comic song, "There's No Place Like Hawaii." They played most of the year at the Barefoot Bar at Queen's Surf restaurant at San Souci beach at the base of Diamond Head. Then mayor Frank Fasi had the structure demolished in the 1980s. The Record Shop shown next to the Hawaiian Eye offices isn't as odd as it seems now. The only place to get Hawaiian music at the time was in Hawaii. The best prices on 45 rpm singles was at Woolworth's in Ala Moana Center, but hotel shops did a good business in these items for their guests. Don Ho was still unknown, but there were many hula recordings available, and lots of albums of the most popular standards. There was also a new series of fine boxed albums by Jack DeMello, called the Music of Hawaii. There were three volumes which covered the old chants up to popular music of 1960. They were released in conjunction with the opening of Ala Moana Shopping mall. Montagne paints native girls on black velvet (among other things), a style which was taken into legitimacy by an artist named Leeteg. Peaches Melba's name is a play on a popular dessert of the 1920s, Peche Melba, named for Nellie Melba, a singer. Peaches lives at The Waikikian, a wonderful small hotel adjacent to the Hawaiian Village. It was known for its parabolic arched lobby and for its beachside bar, the Tahitian Lanai. It was closed in 1998, bought and razed by Hilton and a new timeshare tower was built on the property adding to the density of the property and closing in ocean views from one wing of the adjoining Ilikai.

Guests: Grant Williams (as Greg MacKenzie), Ruta Lee (Laura Lytton), Arthur Franz (Harry Lytton), Corey Allen (Ken Grimes), Gale Garnett (Kiana Soong), Linda Ho (Receptionist)

Laura Lytton has been resisting granting her husband Harry a divorce, despite the fact that he's got a mistress, Kiana Soong. Meanwhile, Harry's so desperate, he's hired a professional hit man, Kenneth Grimes, and paid him $5,000 to kill Laura. After the transaction, Laura apologizes and tells Harry she will agree to a divorce. Harry's frantic to get a hold of Grimes, but he doesn't know how. He contacts Greg and tells him Laura's been receiving death threats and to stop her from being killed. But by now,Grimes is already on the job, romancing Laura to get close to her. She falls for him and Harry finally finds him, begs him to call off the job and take the money and go. Grimes agrees, but he cuts Harry's brake lines, killing him.

There are nice establishing shots of the small downtown police station, the old Customs House and Main Post Office (now home only to a branch P.O.). There is also a nice nighttime shot of the Hawaiian Village Dome, recently demolished. It was the showroom where Alfred Apaka and Hilo Hattie entertained for many years.
The car wreck is stock footage and for years, all TV shows used the same footage-a dark car or a light car-going off a cliff or windy mountain road. The cars didn't match the vehicles in the shows, but this is a very expensive shot, and TV had to use what they had.
This show did beach shots well, using an outrigger canoe or surfboard as a visual break from studio sand to a process shot of Waikiki Beach. At the time, there were many outriggers on the beach outside the big hotels.
Gale Garnett was a singer, and had a huge hit with "We'll Sing in the Sunshine" in the 1960s. When she's dressed in black, she says she's in mourning because she was going to Laura's funeral, but it's apparently the same day Harry's killed and nobody knew when Laura was to be killed. Ken says he "saw the newspapers," again a little soon.
The nameplate on Lytton's desk reads "Litton."
Connie Stevens sings "Lulu's Back in Town," by Al Dubin and Harry Warren, introduced in Warner's
Broadway Gondolier, sung by Dick Powell. Jerry Vale revived the song in 1964.

59. MAN FROM MANILA (3/8/61)
Written by Leo Gordon and Paul Leslie Peil; Directed by Michael Joseph Kane
Regulars: Williams, Eisley, Conrad, Stevens, Ponce, Mossman, Prestidge, Philippe
Guests: Jean Gillespie (Joanna Symes), Kent Taylor (Adam Kendricks), Robert Palmer (Artie Jensen), John Marley (Roger Porter), Robert Karnes (Walter Krohl [the D. A.]), Robert Kino (Martin Fong)

Tom escorts an important federal witness in from the Philippines, via a small landing strip. He lets Tracy know the 'package' has arrived and to call the D. A. But there's someone at the landing strip with a camera.
Roger Porter is not happy cooped up in the safe house. He was a witness to an insurance scam and murder, but he also was made head of the Manila operation by the man he will testify against, Adam Kendricks. The woman who took the photo is the D.A.'s secretary Joanna Symes. Up to now, a discreet and reliable woman, she's fallen in love with a rogue, Artie Jensen, and he put her up to it and then uses the film to try to blackmail Kendricks. He's laughed at and resorts to more violent measures.

The Koolau Mountains are mentioned in dialogue. They are the longest mountain chain on Oahu, separating the Leeward from the Windward side of the island. The Waianaes are the other range of mountains on the island, culminating in the tallest mountain, Mt. Ka'ala.
Connie Stevens sings "I'll String Along with You," a Dubin/Warren standard, introduced by Dick Powell and Ginger Rogers in
Twenty Million Sweethearts, and interpolated into the non- musical Warner film The Hard Way and again in My Dream Is Yours, The Jazz Singer and Battle Cry--all Warner films.
Joanna wears several spaghetti strap dresses in the episode. The first one, with the scoop neck and full skirt, was almost a uniform at the time. These dresses were made in everything from cotton to taffeta, prints and solids. Cricket wears a strapless number and a faux pearl headband, tipped like a tiara; another popular look.
Joanna's apartment is brick federalist style, and obviously backlot façade. Later one, Warners would build some more modern structures for filming use, but at this time, everything looks pretty dark and East Coast-the type of films Warner made. Kendricks' house has a more tropical feeling.
Tom wonders why (resident) Kendricks would come to the Shell Bar at the Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. At the time, the hotel was very popular with local people, as it was on the edge of Waikiki and had a large parking lot as well as first-class entertainment.
Kikiki Tours did not exist and neither does Waialea Point, where the landing strip is supposed to be. Waialua is a town on the North Shore, but the point is Kaena Point. These misnomers are usually intentional, for legal reasons.
Since Artie drives a hot Corvette and owns a tour company one wonders why he's so desperate for money.


60. HER FATHER'S HOUSE (3/15/61)
Written by Robert Tallman & Silvia Richards; Directed by Robert Sparr
Regulars: Williams, Eisley, Conrad, Stevens, Ponce, Mossman, Prestidge Guests: Ellen Davalos (Lily Shung), Craig Hill (Neill Ormsby), Rebecca Welles (Vera Ormsby), Isobel Elsom (Mrs. Vanalden), Bill Zuckert (Harper), Edo Mita (Saito), Nora Marlowe (Annie Dowd), Tammy Windsor (Receptionist)

It's Boat Day and the Lurline's coming in. The representatives of hotels and tour companies come aboard in the harbor and the passengers start through immigration. Lily Shung has a passport from a well-known forger in Hong Kong and she's stopped. Her statement that she's really an American, daughter of Tony Vanalden, means nothing to the officials. She's detained, but escapes when the tour staff leaves the ship. Kim is waiting for Greg, but is dismissed and offers Lily a ride. She asks for the Vanaldens, and he says they're an old island family. At the door, she presents her father's bible and an ID bracelet. Saito takes them to Mrs. Vanalden who says she knows nothing of the girl and to send her away. Hanging like vultures are the cousins, Neill and Vera Ormsby, who will lose their glittering inheritance if Lilly is acknowledged.
Kim takes Lilly to Hawaiian Eye. Tom finds out Tony Vanalden crashed in China during the Korean War and was missing six months. He turned up on Guam and a nurse who was there says she remembers writing letters for Tony to his grandmother about his wife and daughter in China. He was killed a week after returning to duty.

There is some wonderful footage of Boat Day-a weekly occurrence when the Matson ships, Lurline and Matsonia, arrived from the West Coast. The implication here is that the ship is in from Hong Kong, but the two big white Matson liners rarely deviated from their Pacific crossing schedules. South Pacific trips were made by the smaller Mariposa and Monterey.
Note the catamaran Ali'i Kai roaming around the ship. This large boat used to take tourists out to greet the liners for a price. Its most recent incarnation is even larger, and only makes sunset dinner cruises to Diamond Head and back. Note the use of real flower lei for the arrival scene. This was a nice touch from usually thrifty Warner's. Doug Mossman, technical advisor, probably taught someone how to make them. Many shows and films used fake lei, and they always look it.
