The character he played, Steve McGarrett was the relentless, upright and honest head of the fictitious Hawaiian State Police unit called "Five-0"- which later became the urban alert and message for "flush it now - the cops are here!" I remember hearing the call of "Five-0" often when I walked into the wing of a housing unit back in my days of being a correctional officer.
I recently came across this check and was able to acquire it. It was made out to Wang Chong and on the back it is stamped "Chong Dry Cleaning" It was written on February 23, 1962, six years before Hawaii Five-0! It now resides in Studio 312!
