Sad news.

Sure he's had many other well-known roles, but I instantly recall him as Vincent Ludwig from The Naked Gun.

"LOUSY HUMAN BASTARDS!!!"

Since Wrath of Khan will be quoted ad nauseum in here, I thought I'd give a little love to Planet of the Apes.

Damn it! Ricardo and McGoohan in 24 hours?! Who'll be the 3rd one, I wonder.

Re: R.I.P. Ricardo Montalban

I saw him at a Star Trek convention and the first thing he said when he grabbed the microphone was "Yes, that was my real chest."

He only got $100k for his role in the Wrath of Kahn.

Talking about "Space Seed" for a moment.. Kinda sad that both he and the actress that played Lt. McGivers (Madlyn Rhue) are both gone now.

I just saw Wrath of Khan in 70mm a few weeks back. Truly one of the great film villains.

You tell 'em, pal. You will be missed.

The Wrath of Kahn would be a Star Trek movie starring Woody Allen.
