Two other people died in the past several days: Eddie Constantine, hero of ALPHAVILLE, an American who became a big star in postwar France as a hard boiled detective in (IMHO) some of the worst films ever made and some decent ones. He was 75. Inoshiro Honda, director of the original GODZILLA and several other monster films. The Chicago Tribune says he made a dozen of them, and about 30 others. He was 81.
