Manson-type character from Hawaii Five-O 1968

Sitting here watching Netflix, and found a bunch of seasons of the old (and best) Hawaii Five-O shows from 1968 and on. I couldn't believe my eyes when I watched an episode entitled "Up Tight" from Season 1, episode 14. In this episode, young girls are being fed drugs, and getting brainwashed by an older, charming, charismatic dude named "David" who tells the girls that "all is one." He also won't take any of the drugs himself, UNTIL.....Well, won't tell you anymore. You will have to watch it! Sound familiar? The guy who played David in this episode also had dark hair, and a huge unibrow. Of course, there are differences too, like the character being an ex-professor, ala Timothy Leary. Hey, I wonder if Charlie ever watched this episode when it aired in 1968? For those of you who don't have Netflix, it might be on YouTube. I guess there were a lot of "Manson-like dudes" running around all over the place way back then!
