Movie Info

Marc Allegret's Lac Aux Dames (Ladies' Lake) boasts an impressive pedigree, having been adapted by novelist Collette from a book by Vicki Baum. A very young and dazzlingly handsome Jean-Pierre Aumont plays an unemployed engineer who lands a job as a lifeguard at a Tyrolean resort. Boasting a most impressive physique, Aumont finds himself besieged by willing females and not complaining about it one tiny bit. Despite the plethora of female pulchritude, Aumont has eyes only for the beauteous Illa Meary, but he ends up neglecting her, with unfortunate consequences. Lac Aux Dames was financed in part by a member of the Rothschild banking family, who made back his investment many times over. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Colette's dialogue, some moody photography and Allégret's showcasing of his youthful cast are the main attractions.

This French importation of the adaptation of a story by Vicki Baum presents strong and interesting drama, and features a new and young player, Simone Simon.

This is an enjoyable love story, filmed in the beautiful background of the Tyrol, with some music and dancing, and acted by an excellent cast.

It never properly gets to grips with the story, and a great deal more might have been made of the scenic background. Nevertheless, it succeeds in being reasonably entertaining, and Simone Simon, who plays the part of Puck, is most enchanting.
