Gasp...I wasn't expecting to read this today....man this is most saddening.  Mr. Montalban made many good movies/shows great.  He had an unforgettable voice and suave acting style.  I often remember him most for his role in The Planet Of The Apes movies.  RIP to a true legend.  Bluesad

I also remember him from an old war movie I loved as a kid...it was called BATTLEGROUND. It was set during the Battle of the Bulge. Great war film. Hasta ,Ricardo.... Bluesad

He was one of those actors that had many memorable roles. Khan, Armondo, Mr. Rourke, Grandad from Spy Kids, etc... He will be missed in the acting world.

May he forever rest on that rich, soft Corinthian leather.  The really freaks me because I just broke out TWOK the other night and watched it again.  Ricardo was one suave dude and the great Latin lover of his time.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
