Just as riveting today as it was three decades ago
6 April 2007 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

Besides being known for Jack Lord's hard-hitting-take-no-prisoners-approach as "Steve McGarrett, its lush Hawaiian locations, and Morton Stevens' theme and scores, "Hawaii 5-0" also presented performers that rarely graced the small screen. "Trouble in Mind" features legendary jazz singer Nancy Wilson a chance to stretch her acting muscles as singer desperately in need of a fix. Of course, the script permits the singer to display her well-respected vocal skills in three selections, one a song from which the title comes.

Equally impressive is Harry Guardino as Wilson's pianist, lover, and confidant. Milton Selzer, another well-known face of film and television, assays another of his many roles as a seedy "pusher." All the actors marvelously execute their roles and it is surprising that Wilson didn't receive more offers to act since this aired in 1970.

One of the most disturbing of the scenes involves a young pusher showing Guardino's character that his stash is some of the best in the island. The elementary-aged "entepreneur" is not even afraid to "shoot up" to prove his point.

Today's drug of choice may be crystal meth, but the horror of the boy's act is no less attention-grabbing.

"Hawaii 5-0" was never afraid to "tell it like it is."
