    RIP-Ricardo Montalban

    Just saw this: 'Fantasy Island' actor Ricardo Montalban dead at 88 - CNN.com

    He was always such a class act, and a wonderful human being. Growing up in the 70's, he was everywhere. And he was fantastic. He did so much too, he played a large role in changing the ways Hispanics were stereotyped in Hollywood.

    Married to the same woman 63 years. Raised 4 children. Lived a wonderful, rich life of 88 years. That was a life worth living.

    He was certainly a cool figure in Fantasy Island, and had a voice that you loved to listen to.

    Re: RIP-Ricardo Montalban

    Rest in Peace, sir!

    Fun Phaedrus factoid: He and I share the same chronic pain condition, both of which were caused by a back injury resulting from getting thrown from a horse.

    I really AM the forum Forrest Gump, aren't I?

    My back is acting up today because of the cold, so I'll dedicate it to Mr. Montalban...

    Being thrown from a horse doesn't sound very Phaedrus-like. I would think being thrown from a camel, wildebeast or wild elephant would be more in your wheelhouse.

    Re: RIP-Ricardo Montalban

    Star Trek II is a favorite of mine, and this movie sequence is one of my all time faves. Ricardo was a great villian...

    BTW, change your password occasionally...things must be alot better in the future if you can get away with only 5-digit passwords...

    Classic. That bug crawling into Checkhov's ear is one of the most profound images of my childhood!
