"Standing on soil feels so much different than standing on city pavement; it lets you look inward and reflect and see who you really are, while you see a beautiful, unspoiled land as far as the eye can see. It allows your inner life to grow."

"True love doesn't happen right away; it's an ever-growing process. It develops after you've gone through many ups and downs, when you've suffered together, cried together, laughed together."

Oh, how sad I really liked Ricardo Montalban.
I always thought he was a very handsome gentleman.
I have seen him in "Two weeks with Love." (with Jane Powell) but that's the only movie I can recall seeing him in. What other movies would you recommend that he plays in? I'd be interested in knowing.... ;)

Blessings,
Jenny

Aw!! I had no idea!!!! How sad . . he was fabulous. I just watched him yesterday actually. Wasn't he wonderful with Esther Williams?

Jenny: I haven't seen too many Ricardo Montalban films...at least not compared to other 1950's stars! ☺

Here are a few that I have seen, though I can't completely recommend ALL of them due to personal preference or short bits of "unnecessary" material. We have a great previewer and muter in our house!

Sayonara (1957)
Cheyenne Autumn (1964)
The Singing Nun (1966)

That is sad. I do love the quotes of his that you included, Emily - especially the second one. :-)
