The ABC series ran from 1978-1984 with Montalban as Mr. Roarke, proprietor of Fantasy Island, a tropical resort where guests could live out their wildest dreams. Villechaize (1943-1993) was his assistant, Tattoo. RICARDO MONTALBON (1920-2009), born Ricardo Gonzalo Pedro Montalban y Merino, is perhaps best known for his role as the suave, mysterious Mr. Roarke on TV's Fantasy Island (1978-1984). Montalban, who played romantic leads in feature films in the 1940s and 1950s, starred in his first "Latin lover" role opposite Cyd Charisse in Fiesta (1947). His other film credits include On An Island With You (1948), Sayonara (1959), The Singing Nun (1966), Sweet Charity (1969), two Planet of the Apes films (1971, 1972), The Train Robbers (1973), Won Ton Ton, The Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982, reprising his role on the TV series) and two Spy Kids films (2002, 2003). Montalban also appeared in a number of made-for-television movies as well as on Bonanza (1959-1973) in 1960 and Mission: Impossible (1966-1973) in 1967, in addition to Star Trek (1966-1969) in 1967. In 1976, he won an Emmy for his portrayal of Sioux chief Satangkai in How The West Was Won (1976-1978). French-born actor HERVE VILLECHAIZE (1943-1993) got his big screen break as "Nick Nack" in the James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun (1974). However, he is best remembered for the role that followed: Ricardo Montalban's assistant "Tattoo" on the hit TV series Fantasy Island (1974-1983). He did not return for the show's final season, having unsuccessfully demanded a salary equal to Montalban's, and the ratings fell. His career stalled thereafter, and - depressed and drinking heavily - he committed suicide a decade later. Fine condition.
