Eddie Fontaine (March 6, 1927 - April 13, 1992) was an American actor and singer, best known for television roles in the 1960s and 1970s. Born Edward Reardon in Springfield, Massachusetts, Fontaine signed as a vocalist with RCA in 1954 after serving in the US Navy. In 1955 he appeared at the Brooklyn Paramount Theater in disc jockey Alan Freed's first rock and roll show. He also sang in the Jayne Mansfield movie The Girl Can't Help It (1956). Musically he is best remembered for his 1958 single "Nothin' Shakin' (But the Leaves on the Trees)," which was later covered by The Beatles. He is listed as a "legend" but not an inductee at the Rockabilly Hall of Fame site.show more
