Edie Falco With James MacArthur

James MacArthur, who was best known for his catchphrase "Book 'em, Danno" from the original "Hawaii Five-O," series, died Today. He was 72 years old. His family was at his side at the time of his death, according to a statement released to the media. No further details were given. The actor son of famed screenwriter Charles MacArthur and theater legend Helen Hayes played Detective Dan Williams on the original 1970s TV series for 11 seasons. He also made several hit films, including Walt Disney's "Swiss Family Robinson" and "The Battle of the Bulge."

Editors Note: I photographed James MacArthur many times with his mother Helen Hayes. This guy had class. I remember a few years ago, I photographed him with Edie Falco and gave James my card. He called me one day and asked for the photos to use on his website. I was in shock that this legend would give me a call like a regular guy and ask for the photos. I promptly sent him the pics and he sent me a nice thank you note. This guy had class, like most of the old time Hollywood legends had. I have very fond memories of James MacArthur and his mother Helen Hayes over the years when they presented the Helen Hayes award for Saint Claires Hospital. They were both gracious and you always felt welcomed. James MacArthur will be missed.
