Goodbye Ricardo Montalban (Nov 25, 1920 - Jan. 14, 2009

Ricardo Gonzalo Pedro Montalbán Merino died on Wednesday...during the late 1970s, he was the spokesperson in automobile advertisements for the Chrysler Cordoba (in which he famously extols the "Corinthian leather" used for its interior)...from 1977 to 1984 he starred as Mr. Roarke in the television series Fantasy Island...he also played the villainous Khan Noonien Singh in both the 1967 "Space Seed" episode of the first season of the original Star Trek series, and the 1982 film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan...
