Goofs

When Kenner shows up for the formation in which Danny checks each of the soldiers for scratches on their chests, his is the only uniform with a yellow "US Army" label on the left pocket. Also, in 1972, the Army did not use rank stripes on the fatigue uniforms. By that time, they had already gone to using subdued insignia on the collars. See more »

The Search For The Real Rapist!!
8 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The opening part of "Skinhead" had a crowd of people enjoying the night at a dance hall. The jukebox had been playing quite loud for the better part of the evening. Suddenly, the young woman was eventually raped by an assailant. The victim was too frightened to look at Steve McGarrett's face in her hospital bed. Five-O started their investigation into the rape from the previous night.

Their first look was an Army Sergeant. Five-O claimed he had sexually assaulted her at the dance. The case seemed open-and-shut to them ... or so it seemed from the beginning. They interviewed a service station attendant the day after the dance. The person in question had another work shirt available for duty in case the first one was missing on his shift. Five-O then looked confused and puzzled as to the identity of the actual rapist.

Five-O found something unusual about the Army Sergeant. He was involved in a car crash -- for which he became severely injured from the effects of the wreck back in September 1970. He had paid 50 dollars per month to a surgeon in Toronto, Ontario for medical expenses. Five-O had gradually been convinced that he was no more the suspect in the rape. In the end, the evidence had been pointed directly to the service station attendant for raping the woman that night. McGarrett found three buttons matching to the one button from the assailant's shirt. He then confessed -- in a crying fit -- to raping the woman; and then telling McGarrett ... "I'm Sorry!" McGarrett said ... "Are You Ever?" The end result: the Army Sergeant ended up serving time for aggravated assault instead of 25 years for a rape he did not commit at all. A Fat 16 Out Of 10!!
