Montalban", 5¾x4½ album leaf. The Osmond Brothers, ALAN (born
1949), WAYNE (born 1951), MERRILL (born 1953) and JAY (born
1955) first sang professionally in 1962 at Disneyland, where they were taped for
a segment of Disneyland After Dark. Later in 1962, they first appeared
on The Andy Williams Show, where they were frequent performers from 1962
to 1971. DONNY (born 1957) made his debut on the show on December 10,
1963, a day after his sixth birthday, while MARIE (born 1959) was first
introduced as a three-year-old (sitting on Williams' lap). Marie later joined
the group, necessitating a name change from The Osmond Brothers to The Osmonds.
Both Donny and Marie would go on to successful solo careers as well as
performing (including their own variety show and talk show) and recording as a
duo. Donny, who became a teen heartthrob, had hits with "Puppy Love", "The
Twelfth of Never" and "A Million to One". Between January 24, 1971 and
November 6, 1978, the family had 23 gold records: five LPs and three singles
by The Osmonds; four LPs and five singles by Donny; a single by Marie; and four
LPs and one single by Donny and Marie. In 1992, The Osmond Brothers (minus
Donny, plus brother JIMMY, born in 1963) shifted their focus to country music,
and found instant success, being named Billboard's top new singles group that
year. They have since been named Group of the Year in Branson, Missouri,
where they own, operate and perform at the Osmond Family Theatre. Not only do
the original members of the Osmond family continue to enjoy success (Donny's
latest album, Somewhere in Time, was a huge hit in the UK and did well in
the U.S.), but their legacy also lives on -- Alan's eight sons now perform as
The Osmonds - Second Generation. RICARDO MONTALBAN, born in 1920 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. Lightly
