About Ricardo Montalban (1920 – 2009)
Mexican leading man in many American films. Ricardo Montalban was born in Mexico City, and died on January 14, 2009 in Los Angeles. Montalban was 88.

Ricardo moved to Los Angeles as a teenager, and lived with his older brother Carlos. He became interested in acting at Fairfax High School. After high school, he and his brother Carlos, also an aspiring actor and dancer, went to "The Big Apple", where Ricardo got his start on the stage, beginning in 1940; getting roles in Our Betters and Private Affair.

After returning to Mexico to care for his sick mother, he became a sensation in Spanish language films, which led to films with MGM. He moved back to Los Angeles. After his second film with MGM, On An Island With You, co-starring with Esther Williams, he was offered a contract. For MGM, he was cast as Latin lovers, gringos, bandidos, and gigolos; roles that stalled his career, somewhat, though he did get a few roles outside the typecasting.

On October 26th, 1944, Ricardo married the love of his life, Georgiana Young. They had four children. Ricardo was the brother-in-law of actress Loretta Young.

In the 1960's, he mostly was cast as a continental, suave operator.

Ricardo's performance on the TV series Fantasy Island, a long-running, six- season hit, that made him a popular personality.
