A Los Angeles city councilman says Ricardo Montalban has died. He was 88. The Mexican-born actor, who became a star in splashy MGM musicals and later the wish-fulfilling Mr. Roarke in TV’s “Fantasy Island,” died at his home in Los Angeles, City Council President Eric Garcetti said Wednesday.
Aside from Fantasy Island,
and the Chrysler Cordoba with soft Corynthian leather and a cargo of innuendo,
He was in all sorts of movies,
Dancing (no, that is not Cid Charisse, may be Esther Williams but not Cid Charisse)
at one of the planets of the Apes,
and getting on Kirk’s nerves,
Adiós, Ricardo Montalbán.
