Rest in soft, corinthian leather

Yesterday brought the sad news that hathos-facilitator Ricardo Montalban has died at age 88. As Mister Roarke on “Fantasy Island,” he kept B-list actors in the public eye for years beyond when they would have otherwise faded away. And, he invented the term “corinthian leather” to describe one of the the joys of the Chrysler Cordoba in the ’70s.

Rest in peace, Mr. Montalban.
