On June 17, 2008, we lost Cyd Charisse after she was admitted to the hospital after having a heart attack. Now her fantastic dance partner, Ricardo Montalban, has also passed away at the age of 88.
For those of you who don’t recognize him in this video clip, perhaps you know Ricardo Montalban better as Mr. Roarke of Fantasy Island or as Noonien Singh giving Captain Kirk trouble in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
While you may not know his name, Montalban has been the picture of success, gentlemanly behavior and modesty in Hollywood for many years. He will definitely be missed.
