    I really liked him. He was a class act and a wonderful actor! I will always remember him from Fantasy Island, a wonderful show from my younger years.

    Don’t forget “Vo-lar-ray. Oh oh! Vo-lar-ray!” for the Chrysler Volare he advertised for. Or was that Burt Convey?

    TigerYogiji replies: Don’t forget about the “fine Corinthian Leather”!

    Oh my goodness. I have to better about visiting here. I’d heard about Patrick McGoohan, but somehow completely missed the news of Ricardo Montalban. Sad.

    Ricardo Montalban epitomized the suave host image; i just recently found out he starred in the Wrath of Khan too, crazy
