The title had extra 'n' in it to avoid copyright problems with the Emmanuelle movie series. See more »

Goofs

Emmannuelle (and, later, a gay passer-by) try to raise a reaction from the guardsman at St James' Palace. When the guardsman is shown in close-up, his tunic buttons are arranged singly, showing him to be a Grenadier Guard. When he is seen from a distance, his buttons are clearly arranged in groups of three, making him a Scots Guard. See more »

Quotes

The Prime Minister: What were you doing in the far east, my dear?
Emmannuelle Prevert: Sleeping around mostly.
Emile Prevert: Er... she means sleeping around in many parts of the world.

RIP Carry On films 1958 - 1978
8 September 2002 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

One would expect this, the last in the long line of Carry On films, to be a load of old rubbish. And while it is perhaps not Carry On heaven it is still worth a look.

It is ironic being the last in the series, that after the utterly appalling Carry on England, Emmannuelle is actually a slightly better film. Kenneth Williams is in fine nostril-flaring form, Kenneth Connor is a delight as the sleazy chauffeur and stunning Suzanne Danielle a joy to behold in her body hugging outfits. Even the snazzy 70s theme song, "Love Crazy" is quite catchy!

However, we are now at the end of the line for this series of comedy favourites and it is sad to see a now bloated Joan Sims doing not very much, an ancient Peter Butterworth doing not very much and underused Jack Douglas not falling over and making silly noises.

Also long, long gone is the series' subtle use of innuendo and double entendre. As with Carry on England, we are now subjected to nude bottoms and breasts to raise a titter among the audience. And the nose cone gag on the Concorde has to be seen to be believed!

Better than its predecessor and worth an occasional viewing but by no means one of the best. A very, very different film to Sergeant which launched the series a staggering 20 years before.
