A big wave of stars continue to land on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0. The show has just signed Oscar-winning TV legend Patty Duke to guest star in a season 2 episode.

Duke will play an Alzheimer’s-afflicted mother of a murder victim. When the Five-0 team go to deliver the notification, they learn her condition has her believing that her adult son is actually still a child. For a while, the team shields her from the news, but ultimately she must confront her devastating loss.

According to IMDb, Duke’s first TV series appearance was back in 1957 (Kraft Theatre) which later lead to her namesake sitcom Patty Duke Show (1963-66), followed by shows like It Takes Two (1982), Hail to the Chief (1985) and Karen’s Song (1987). She won an Oscar at 16 for her starring role in The Miracle Worker and guest-starred on the original Hawaii in 1973. Duke joins a slew of new names on Hawaii bulking up the hit show’s second season, with stars ranging from Lauren German to Tom Sizemore to John Locke himself, Terry O’Quinn. The show returns Monday, Sept. 19.

    My personal favorite Patty Duke performance is the tender and sweet mother of a long-lost child in “Always Remember I Love You”. Sure it was cliched’ and sappy but that movie really made me cry for her. That last riveting scene where she breaks down crying is an honest to goodness viewer tearjerker (manipulated or not!).

  • April

    She was on The Protector this past weekend.

  • Bill J

    She is currently shooting a second Protector episode. Surprised the article did not mention she guest starred on the original Hawaii Five-0 in 1973.

    • Bil J

      Nevermind I guess I missed the part where they do mention she was on the original.

  • jfms777

    Would have been nice if you mentioned she also won an Emmy. (You know, the award they give for excellence in tv.)

    • Bil J

      I thought that odd about the Emmy also – and she has won 3 of them!

    • Sue1

      Yes, it would have been nice. “According to IMDb…” was certainly odd too– this article seems slapped together. Whatever, I’m looking forward to seeing her.

      • Lorriane

        I am so looking forward too seeing Patty as well again. She is a Great Actress and I have missed seeing her.
        Welcome back Patty!!!!!

  • amy

    She’s always been an amazing actress. She’s had an interesting personal life also. I don’t watch that show but sure she will do a great job!

  • TR

    Good way to get a free trip to Hawaii!

  • Jeremy

    Patty doesn’t look that great in the picture above, but looks notwithstanding, she is an excellent actress and I enjoy her work.

    “Duke’s first TV series appearance was back in 1957 (Kraft Theatre) which later lead to her namesake sitcom Patty Duke Show (1963-66),”

    The past tense of the verb “to lead” is “led”–“lead,” if pronounced the same way, is a highly toxic mineral. And you need a comma before “which.”

    That is my anal retentive grammar complaint of the night.

    • Huh?

      You’ll go crazy picking apart the grammatical errors you find here. There are plenty.

  • alan of montreal

    Patty Duke looks like Carol Burnett in that photo.

  • Sebastian

    Patty Duke is one of my favorite actresses. I loved her over the top performance in “Valley of the Dolls”.

        I want a doll! I want a doll!

  • John

    Had the opportunity to meet Patty Duke. What a lovely, kind lady. Became friends with her and her husband Mike, and they even invited us to come see her in San Francisco when she was in “Wicked.” Spent some time with them. What wonderful people. Patty is a delight. Just love her!

  • Deborah

    Love her

  • David

    I’ll bet the killer will turn out to be her identical cousin Kathy.

    • Dave Z


  • Ash

    “But they’re cuzzzzzzins…..”

    • Jeff

      Identical cousins all the way.
      One pair of matching bookends,
      Different as night and day.

    My apologies to Patty Duke. When I saw her picture, I asked myself, “When did Sally Jesse Raphael win an Oscar?”
