Ricardo Montalban was also an outspoken activist on behalf of Latinos in showbiz. In 1970, he founded the non-profit organization Nosotros to improve the image of Latinos in the entertainment industry, promote employment in front of and behind the camera, and to provide educational opportunities for Hispanics in the Performing Arts.

What a tribute to Patrick McGoohan’s unforgettable performances in the British TV series Danger Man (retitled Secret Agent in the U.S.) and then its semi-sequel The Prisoner (my all-time favorite TV series) that not just a Hollywood movie (Universal) but also a TV series (AMC) are recreating his misadventures as Number 6.
