Claude Dauphin (19 August 1903 – 16 November 1978) was a French actor. He appeared in over 130 films between 1930 and 1978.

He was born in Corbeil-Essonnes, Essonne. His father was Maurice Étienne Legrand, a poet who wrote as Franc-Nohain, and who was the librettist for Maurice Ravel's opera L'heure espagnole.

Dauphin married American actress Norma Eberhardt in 1955.[1] The couple divided their time between Paris, Los Angeles, New York City and Ocean Township, New Jersey.[1][2] They remained together until Daiphin's death in Paris in 1978.[1]
