Being a bit too young to get entirely into Fantasy Island, I mostly knew Ricardo Montalban as Khan, whose wrath gets the starship enterprise in a world of trouble in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, the only Star Trek film I had seen until Babe in the big city's dad starred in that one.
He brought a whole lot of luxurious class to the franchise (which is why the Chrysler Le Baron used him as their suave spokesperson). He also added more sixty five year old muscle than Patrick Stewart – maybe- it would be a toss up. His physique was so buff in the film that it was rumored to be fake.
His voice is butter soft and you all know how much I love a good character actor, especially one that pull of white suits and Tina Turner hair with equal ease.
But what do you think?
