DIAMOND HEAD is one of the most famous places on the island of Oahu.
ANYONE who grew up in the 60’s knows this theme song..
once you hear it, it gets stuck in your head. CBS had a gold mine in
this series HAWAII FIVE-O. Many other movies and tv shows
were made or are being made there. The first was DIAMOND HEAD
movie in 1963..then this tv series and then a movie that is a
favorite of mine DIAMOND HEAD with Charlton Heston in 1975.
LOST the current ABC tv series, that is coming back soon, is still
being shot there very near the DIAMOND HEAD volcano on the
island of Oahu. There is rumor that CBS might bring this series back
focusing on the son of the main character Steve Mcgarrett. His most
famous line in the TV series was "BOOK’EM DANNO" referring to his
partner played by James Mac Arthur. I loved watching this show.
It took me away from cold cold Michigan in the wintertime. I saw every
along later called MAGNUM P.I. Tom Selleck was a big hit
in that series which started in 1980. I loved watching Tom run around
the islands in the red Corvett convertible he "borrowed from
the man who you never saw in the series". DID you know that the
famous ORSON WELLES played the unseen ROBIN MASTERS??
Good MEMORIES and all based on the Hawaiian Islands.
Diamond Head Crater is a national landmark in Hawaii. This Link
will get you more info on such a wonderful place to visit.
Well I am tired and going back to rest after a long day visiting
Diamond Head. Those of you who love the sunsets here on the
island of Oahu are in for a treat. Hope you had a fun day!
PS the weather back home is still frightful…but the warm breezes here
are delightful. despite some brief showers.
