Ricardo Montalban, best known as Mr. Rourke on Fantasy Island and perhaps some Chrysler commercials but better known among genre fans in perhaps his best role as Khan Noonian Singh in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan and also won an Emmy for role in How The West Was Won and the SAG Lifetime Achievement award in 1994, passed away this morning at the age of 88.
The Thunder Child writes “Practically every news outlet is sharing the sad news that Patrick McGoohan passed away today at the age of 80, after a short illness.
Despite over 60 years of work, his classic series The Prisoner remains his most enduring legacy, and if you visit my blog entry today on Mr. McGoohan, you can view a 9-minute video of him being interviewed by Warner Troyan in 1977, in front of a live studio audience (posted at YouTube).
I’ll be having a Prisoner marathon tonight…

Aside from his well known role in The Prisoner, McGoohan’s most recent major role was as King Edward Longshanks in Braveheart, also the evil Roger Devereau in Silver Streak, but also guest starred several times on Columbo, for which he won two Emmys.
