Ricardo Montalban: True Elegance

I found these photos of Ricardo Montalban while reading his bio following his death this week. The photos struck me as being beautiful, taking me back to a time that no longer exists. A time where people were elegant and took pride in how they presented themselves to the world.  Mr. Montalban was the epitome of elegance and charm.   That Latin lover type who didn't cross over the cheesy line.  I loved him in Fantasy Island (is that weird?). He knew all but imparted his wisdom in a warm, embracing way.  The photo above was taken in the 60's but looks as thought it could jump out of the current issue of GQ.

The photos are beautiful, reminding us some old time which no longer exists, but personally Kim, I'm not sure if it was better, similar or worse. Usually we like to say that the old times were better! Just think for a moment the Medieval...

No internet, ipods, air travel....it would be weird. But I suppose we just wouldn't know any better. My daughters think it's crazy that I didn't have a computer in college...no one did since there were none. I had to write my papers by hand. Weird!
