RIP Ricardo Montalban

The way this day is going, somebody better check on James Garner, and I mean like pronto.


  1. Another great gone. Hopefully, he'll end up on his own Fantasy Island.

  2. WHAT????

    Aw, man. I'm going to watch Wrath of Khan in his honor tonight.

  3. Oh, you've got to be effing kidding me.

    Why are so many good people dying today!?

  4. Anonymous5:10 PM

    Quick! Someone launch a Genesis Device at the moon and we can get the Prisoner and Khan back in one fell swoop!

    Seriously: Sad news, but its good to know these guys lived full lives. I hope their families can be comforted.


  5. Looks like the plane has taken its last trip to Fantasy Island... Bummer

  6. Ricardo Montalban was fantastic. One of my favorite roles of his is Rodriques in Battleground, the 1949 classic about a small group of GIs caught up in the Battle of the Bulge. I think some of his campier roles get the press, like Khan and Mr. Roarke, but to me he'll always be that doomed, decent, good-natured guy who wanted his buddy to call his family in LA long distance when he got back to the States and not worry about the charge if the call ran over three minutes.

  7. He was great, like the Cordoba with Corinthian leather.
    He will be missed but he left a lot of fun stuff behind!

  8. So sad. And the strange thing is that just a few days ago I had first discovered the joys of one of his last roles, the charming and suave Senor Senior Senior after buying a Kim Possible DVD set (up until then I had only seen KP dubbed into German).
