"The most interesting man in the world" wasn't always

I just realized while reading about The Cordoba Mosque in Manhattan that he's just a cheap rip-off of Ricardo Montalban.

There are a lot of people involved or discussing the Cordoba Mosque. How about some details?

I was just reading about it in another place and my rusty synapses flashed back to the Ricardo mMntleban 'rich corynthian leather' ads for the Chrysler Cordoba in the 70s and the realization that he was my generations campy equivelent to "The most interesting man in the world."

I'm not that interested in the Mosque debate and we already have that thread which will probably draw some more comments soon as the debate over that heats up in the media.

I can remember Ricardo Montalban from my childhood (movies) ...and Fantasy Island, so I don't see him as campy. I remember the Corinthian leather. He was asked about that leather on a talk show, and he said it means a good quality leather. I don't think there really is such a thing!

Google agrees:

Quote:
Corinthian leather was a phrase invented for marketing use to describe the leather used in certain Chrysler luxury cars in the 1970s. In this case, "Corinthian" does not actually indicate any relationship with Corinth, nor any specific type of leather and was added simply as a linguistic cachet.
LOL

The 70's were pretty campy. Remember Leisure Suits.

Leisure suits? I bought one for my husband! (My mother kept telling me what a bargain it was!) It's still hanging in the closet, never worn. Perhaps a high school could use it as a costume for a stage production!
