Typescript quote from Ricardo Montalban's character Mr. Roarke on Fantasy Island about the average man - "one of the most overlooked, unappreciated, yet noblest creatures of all" - signed with "Much love"
Typescript signed: "Much love/Ricardo Montalban", 1p, 8½x11. Headed: "* RICARDO MONTALBAN /As/ * MR. ROARKE /On/*FANTASY ISLAND*". In full: "'It is not the physical labor that challenges the average man and woman; it is the constant assaults on the spirit they must learn to endure. The violences against the soul are the ones that hurt the most. The dreams that slip away into middle age; the drudgery of the same job, year after year; the day-to-day compromises; the boss who yells at you-the waiter who looks down his nose because you are wearing the wrong clothes. A thousand tiny attacks that you and I never experience. Because to try to become an average man is to try to become one of the most overlooked, unappreciated, yet noblest creatures of all.'" Montalban (1920-2009, born Ricardo Gonzalo Pedro Montalban y Merino in Mexico City) 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 (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 and Mission: Impossible in addition to Star Trek. In 1976, he won an Emmy for his portrayal of a Sioux chief in How The West Was Won. Nicked in lower right corner. Fine condition.
