Eddie Constantine (born Edward Constantinowsky; October 29, 1917 – February 25, 1993) was an American actor and singer who spent his career working in Europe. He became well known for a series of French B movies in which he played secret agent Lemmy Caution and is now best remembered for his role in Jean-Luc Godard's philosophical science fiction film Alphaville (1965). Constantine also appeared in films by Rainer Werner Fassbinder (as himself in Beware of a Holy Whore 1971), Lars von Trier, and Mika Kaurismäki.
