  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Ricardo Montelban by mrsteabag on 19 January 2009 5:19pm
He made his transition over the weekend--88, various heath issues. Best known for his role as Mr. Roarke on "Fantasy Island," seconded by his portrayal of Khan on "Star Trek" and "Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan." I'm bummed. :( RIP and thanks, Ricardo!

I will always remember him, in his best suave voice, saying, "Good to the last drop!" advertising an instant coffee.

I did enjoy seeing him. I hope the other side welcomes you, Mr Montalban, as much as we on this side did.

He'd suffered some sort of back injury and was in constant pain for the last decade of his life. May he rest in peace. I'll never forget the Fantasy Island episode with Samantha Eggar--he was soooooo sexy!

I already put this info on another thread but yes, very sad indeed.

I'll always remember his supporting role in Sweet Charity starring Shirley MacLaine. RIP.
