Jack Lord Biography
Despite his training at the prestigious Actors Studio and a long film career, Jack Lord is mostly remembered for playing tough, hair-heavy cop Steve McGarrett on the TV drama Hawaii Five-O. The show, with its brassy theme song, ran on CBS from 1968 to 1980 and continues in reruns.
Lord's wife, Marie, died in October of 2005. The Lord's $40 million estate was donated to a group of Hawaii charities.
