To be fair, though, Montalban himself was screwed out of the role of Mike Vargas by Charlton Heston in Touch of Evil; a Mexican born actor was denied the chance to play the role of a Mexican man, and it was played by some white guy.
Ricard Montalban may have been Mexican by birth but he was every bit as white as Heston. Both of his parents were born and raised in Spain and immigrated to Mexico before he was born. The only diff between Montalban and Heston was the authenticity of their accents.
