A Tribute to Ricardo Montalban (and overnight open thread/quilting discussion/virtual online orgy/group hug/circle jerk/you name it) (genghis)

Inclusiveness. That’s what we’re all about in the Obamassic Period. Or is it the Obametaceous Period? Let’s let the scientists work this out. We have more important things to discuss. Such as the passing of Ricardo Montalban. Yes, it’s posted over in the Top Headlines, but Mr. Montalban was practically everywhere in the late ‘70’s-early ‘80’s, so he deserves a more prominent sendoff.

Some highlights:

”As he approached midlife in the 1960s, Montalban made numerous guest appearances on television shows including "The Untouchables" and "The Lieutenant," eventually landing a recurring role as Damon West on the popular medical drama "Dr. Kildare."”

“During this period, Montalban secured his place in science-fiction history playing the evil but charismatic Khan in the first season of "Star Trek."”

“Montalban's dignified demeanor and rich accent added flair to the small screen on a number of television shows. It also established him as a popular pitchman for Maxwell House Coffee and Chrysler.”


Some vids below the fold. (’76 Chrysler Cordoba, Maxwell House, Fantasy Island and of course The Wrath of Khan)
