Some people say Hawaii is spoiled, but I don't think so. It's modern. It's a part of today's world.
If the woman in my life, the one that I felt I loved enough to want to marry, loved my children, I'd know then that her love for me was deeper than I could hope for.
Who knows what kind of life I might have had had I not been fortunate enough to have the parents I've had.
Actually, if I could find a woman who was that wonderful; that understanding, well, I'd give her everything in the world that was in my power to give. And, I'd love her more than I ever thought it possible to love any woman.
I got into the acting business very young.
We were living in a tumultuous time, when the world was upside down. Freeman produced a show that was black and white, the good guys versus the bad guys.
I give a percentage of the earnings to the Motion Picture Home.
It's sometimes unnerving to think of that, and I wish it were possible for all children in the world to have the good fortune I've had in having a giving and loving family.
I had accumulated some capital and was at an age at which I was interested in generating income. But even though I was risk averse, I was interested in growth stocks.
A woman doesn't just love a man. She loves who he is. And, who he is is dependent on what he needs.
And after four years, I thoroughly enjoy Hawaii and the success of the show.
Six years ago, I completed the premier episode of Hawaii Five-O, and Jack Lord and I immediately realized that we had a good series, that this was a success such as we'd never hoped for!
I thought even if the show only lasted a year, it would be fun.
Beating the drums for Hawaii is not hard to do... the place just grows on you.
It was an hour of sanity with the good guys winning, a situation where the world was right side up.
