Notes

Ricardo Montalbán, RIP

Ricardo Montalbán has died. Gutter fans probably remember best his roles in Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, Fantasy Island and Spy Kids, but Montalbán had a long career and also worked hard to combat stereotypical depictions of Latinos. Linda Holmes writes about Montalbán trapped on Fantasy Island in obituaries. In a film geek version of a 21 gun salute, Turner Classic Movies will honor Ricardo Montalbán with a movie marathon.
