Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Messieurs Ludovic serves as a showcase for the considerable thespic talents of Odette Joyeaux. Escaping from her grimy coal-mining hometown, Joyeaux intends to seek her fortune in the big city. Within what seems like minutes, she is romantically entangled with trouble-making Jean Chevrier, idealistic engineer Bernard Blier, and rough-hewn but likeable millionaire Marcel Herrand. The film's most inventive sequence, an homage to the silent dramas of old, occurs at the very beginning. Messieurs Ludovic is based on Ludo, the French stage hit by Pierre Scize.
