Montalban's wife of 63 years, Georgiana died in 2007. The couple is survived by its four children.
Miss Letty did a spot as well on WA2K...
may he RIP
had i been he, i'd have wanted my skin to be tanned and installed into a chrysler cordoba
here's my big question:
Were those really his pecs in the Star Trek movie? He was so buff, I thought maybe he was wearing a body costume?
Yep. He made many a heart go pitter pat and he continued to do so long after he became a real senior citizen.
RIP Ricardo. You will surely still live on in your movies.
