Ricardo Montalban Dies At 88

Best remembered as Kahn, in both TOS and Star Trek II the Wrath of Kahn, and as Mr. Roarke of Fantasy Island.

I will miss the gentleman. He was a joy to watch.

I guess he's been beamed away to that great star ship in the sky. :(

Surprise he lasted this long after T.J. Hooker left him on and exploding ship to die.

I wonder if his casket is going to be lined with soft Corinthian leather.


I always liked him. RIP.

He'll always be Khan to me. Khan was by far the best Star Trek movie -- and Ricardo largely made that movie. Actually, it's one of my all time favorite movies.

Heh, I'll make my wife watch it again this weekend!

Hey all, this is one of my favorite links about Khann:


I have seen it a 100 times, but it is still good for a laugh.

Still 88 is a good run, hope I last that long

I know the OP didn't mean any harm, but it would be nice if Mr. Montalban's name were in the thread title. That's who he was, not a character.

That said, he'll be missed. He had terrific screen presence. One of those rare screen actors who made it look easy, effortless.

Too bad Ricardo Montalbán wasn't able to guest star on Boston Legal

soft Corinthian leather

There's no such thing...

I will avenge you!

You have to love Khan's delivery of the his last line:

“To the last, I grapple with thee; From Hell's heart, I stab at thee; For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee”

I guess the entire film had Mody Dick/Herman Melville overtones.

Best Star Trek villian ever. He is Star Trek's Darth Vader.

His greatest movie performance was the role of "Vidal" in "Sweet Charity", starring Shirley McLaine.
