GARY LOCKWOOD GUESTS 'HAWAII FIVE-O: SCHOOL FOR ASSASSINS'

After playing second-fiddle in Stanley Kubrick's highly-successful (and forever legendary) 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, Gary Lockwood never had much of a followup career on the big screen... 

He starred in three b-movies: the Spanish-import heist-noir THEY CAME TO ROB LAS VEGAS; the Frenchman-directed French New Wave via Los Angeles counter-culture indie MODEL SHOP; and the more mainstream counter-culture melodrama R. P. M. (REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE)...

But he remained busy the next twenty-years doing almost every television show imaginable, and usually as a villain... like in the HAWAII FIVE-O final season's SCHOOL FOR ASSASSINS where, as the episode begins, Lockwood's character Kelsey makes like a cinematic spy, going through a highly-secured building and then, gun drawn, pounces into Lloyd Bochner's office with gun drawn...  but instead of pulling the trigger, he's told that he just passed the test... 

Lockwood's mission's to kill a visiting oil sheik connected to affable billionaire Monte Markham... with most of the episode dealing with Markham's would-be romance with Pamela Susan Shoop, who could be setting him up...

Lockwood's character turns up now and again while Jack Lord's new sidekick William Smith does some side investigation along with Moe Keeale's native Hawaiian (and fan-favorite) Truck Kealoha... 

And, overall, Gary Lockwood... who looked twenty-years instead of ten-years past his prime at this point... was still able to leap onto a rooftop (his career began with stunt-work): but he should have had a much bigger part in SCHOOL FOR ASSASSINS after initially graduating with top honors... until winding-up serving off-screen detention.
