For Montalban, a Life of 'Fantasy' Comes to an End
For some, it will be that of Khan in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, which allowed him to utter the line "It is very cold ... in space."
As a Chrysler pitchman, he became synonymous with the phrase "Corinthian leather."
And as Mr. Roarke on Fantasy Island, he was given the task of making people's dreams come true and the line "He who works in a candy store has no desire for sweets."
A real triple threat, Montalban could dance and sing as well as act. In the late 1950s he appeared on Broadway in Jamaica alongside Lena Horne.
