French documentary, then feature film maker; skilled in finding new talent. During the '30s he directed a number of polished films, his work since the war has been effective but less interesting. His brother Yves is also a director.
Allégret became André Gide's lover when he was fifteen and Gide was forty-seven. After filming a 1927 trip to the Congo with Gide, Allégret chose to pursue a career in the motion picture industry. His relationship with Gide ended after that trip, as Allégret found out that he preferred women after having experiences with Congolese women. They nevertheless remained close friends until Gide's death in 1951.
Allégret is noted for discovering and/or developing new acting talent who went on to stardom including Michèle Morgan, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Raimu, Gérard Philipe, Danièle Delorme, Louis Jourdan, and Roger Vadim who would become his directing assistant.
He died on 3 November 1973, aged 72, at Versailles.
