Storyline

Raymond Parmel, a murderous former soldier, claims to have the remains of Peking Man, the fossilized bones of prehistoric humans found in China in the 1930s that disappeared shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. McGarrett must deal both with him and with a professor who represents the government of the People's Republic of China, which wants to recover the bones as a Chinese national treasure, and doesn't care whether Parmel is captured or not.

Goofs

After Che Fong uses the metal detector to identify the grave where Peking Man's fossils might be located as that of "F.H. Heller," the first closeup of Heller's headstone is "flopped", i.e. all of the writing is reversed because the film was accidentally printed backwards. See more »

Crazy Credits

The Marine played by Joseph Monteleone is listed in the credits as simply "Master Sergeant" even though he is addressed in the show, and the rank on his sleeve verifies, that he is a Sergeant Major. See more »
