We will remember Ricardo Montalban mostly from Fantasy Island.

And when he introduced us to the Chrysler Cordoba:

He was funny in Naked Gun as well.

Happy trails Ricardo, hope they have corinthian leather where you're at.

Though I've been to Corinth on numerous occasions. Great souvlaki shops on the isthmus, not much leather though.

So long to a nice guy!!!!!

Aahh. You see Tattoo?
Mr. Smiths fantasy is to see you drive a Chrysler Cordoba over the cliff on the other side of the island.

Oh, I don't like that fantasy boss.

Montalban was cool.

What kind of donut would you like Tattoo?

Dee plane boss...dee plane.

Ricardo was cool in his day. Handsome guy. Probably would have been a bigger star when he was a younger man but he was considered too "ethnic" for Hollywood back in the day...

Did any of you get to experience rich Corinthian leather? It was so nice. You could hardly tell it wasn't vinyl. It was that good. I actually had a girlfriend when I was twenty that had a Cordoba. It was a nice car. A big two door and powerful (V8). Her brother stole it one night and wrapped it around a tree. It didn't have the Corinthian leather. It had the Michigan crushed velour.

In the words of Freddy Mercury: Another one bites the dust.

It's off to Fantasy Island for Mr. Rourke.

May he rest in peace surrounded by rich Corinthian leather.

I remember SCTV had a Fantasy Island skit.

Tattoo said he knew what Boss's fantasy was. "You want to take a girl, tie her up in rich Corinthian leather, and pour coffee beans all over her body."

Rourke grabs him, screaming, "You filthly little wretch" and tosses him across a barroom.

I grew up with Fantasy Island, but I will always remember one of the great lines in cinema:

"He tasks me. He tasks me, and I shall have him! I'll chase him 'round the moons of Nibia, and 'round the Antares maelstrom, and 'round Perdition's flames, before I give him up!" - Khan
