Ricardo Montalban, 1920-2009

"[It is] my tenacity and faith that has seen me through my many years in entertainment..."

In this scene from the 1947 Oscar-nominated movie Fiesta, a young Montalban dances with Cyd Charisse. A man who once referred to his Catholic faith as "the most important thing" in his life, Montalban died yesterday morning at his home in Los Angeles, from what a family member described as "complications from advancing age." He was 88.
