It is said that many a good hero is dependent on a good villain, and the Naked Gun series of movies has had several good villains, all portrayed by excellent actors...

Ricardo Montalban title card Ricardo Montalban was born in Mexico City, Mexico on 25 November, 1920.

Appearing in Mexican films in 1942, Montalban would work for the MGM studio from 1948 onwards in such movies as Border Incident, Mystery Street, and Across the Wide Missouri. It was whilst he was filming that movie that Montalban injured his spine, something that has left him in pain ever since.

Perhaps best known as the mysterious Mr Roarke in the television series Fantasy Island. Montalban has guest starred on many television shows such as Dr Kildare, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Name of the Game, and of course Star Trek, for which he would reprise the same role some twenty years later.

Unfortunately, it has been reported that since 1993 Montalban has been confined to a wheelchair due to the injuries sustained on Across the Wide Missouri
