How well do you know the career of Ricardo Montalban?

KHAAAAAAAN!

Is there a better Star Trek villain? Strike that — is there a better villain? Khan first appeared in the first season of Star Trek: The Original Series, and returned in the finest Trek film, 1982's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Much of the character was built upon the allure of actor Ricardo Montalbán, who had played bad guys in Western and romantic leads for years on screens. 

Of course, you also know him from Fantasy Island. But how well do you know the man himself, the actor with a career as fine as "rich, Corinthian leather." Let's see!

Please please PLEASE with sugar on top MeTV have Fantasy Island (at a reasonable hour). I have the first three seasons on DVD. As far as I know there is no legal DVD for the other seasons.

You’re thinking of Fernando Lamas.

No, you're thinking of the movie Neptune's Daughter. Both were in it.

Worst ever - I got 1 right! My sister was a waitress at a Lums restaurant, back in the late 70's, and she served Ricardo Montalban! He told her she had beautiful teeth. That always cracked me up. Could've been mistaken for saying something else!

Columbo (of course) shows every Sunday on MeTV!!!

Thanks for sharing, but yes, I have been there. I usually watch Columbo Sunday nights, except this past one because of the wild card game. About a year ago while at a thrift store, I found a book that he wrote of his life titled "Just One More Thing".
