Ricardo Montalban, R.I.P.

The veteran actor has died. Obit here. I have a large reserve of affection for Montalaban. The Khan appearances on "Star Trek," of course (and "Wrath of Khan" may be the best of the big-screen "Treks"). I saw him on tour in the '70s in staged readings of "Don Juan in Hell," with Myrna Loy and others. Wasn't a "Fantasy Island" fan but he certainly made a lasting impression with it. The obit I linked to also notes that he was active in getting work for Latino actors. "Saturday Night Live" added to his legend in the "Quien es mas macho?" sketch. And for those of us of a certain age, Montalban stuck the words "Corinthian leather" in our heads forever thanks to those Chrysler Cordoba commercials.
