Scott McClare has a glowing obituary of the man and his career.
I rarely note the passing of Hollywood celebrities, but two things about Montalban struck me.
He was the one famous person I knew as a kid who shared my birthday of November 25th. I thought that was cool. I knew him primarily from his roles from Fantasy Island and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. So when I would read the entertainment section of the newspaper for that week in November, I always looked for his name.
63 years is a life time in itself. Even among my senior saint volunteers I work with weekly are there maybe 2 or 3 couples who have been married 60 years or more. Even more rare are those Hollywood celebrities who can boast such an praiseworthy accomplishment. That to me is something.
