Did You Know?


The last film in the series to feature "Carry On..." regulars Joan Sims, Peter Butterworth, 'Kenneth Connor (I)' and Kenneth Williams, although Williams would make his final "Carry On..." contribution in Carry on Laughing's Christmas Classics (1983) four years later. See more »


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 »


Richmond: [Reading a tabloid newspaper] "... Algolagnia with the Minister of Sport."
Mrs. Dangle: What's that?
Richmond: [Richmond flips through a dictionary] Algolagnia... spanking! You should know about that, you old devil.
Mrs. Dangle: When it used to happen to me I didn't know you were supposed to enjoy it!

Making the Confession movies look classy...
22 April 2005 | by (Isle of Sheppey, UK) – See all my reviews

By the time that Carry On Emmannuelle rolled around, the boom in smutty sex comedies in the UK reached it's zenith and the comparatively innocent double-entendres of the Carry On movies were looking increasingly dated with audiences preferring to seek out something with strong nudity and some crude laughs, rather than watch another Carry On movie in the hope that there might be a fleeting glimpse of a pair of breasts.

With the Confession movies pulling in the punters, and with David Sullivan muscling into the scene with movies like Come Play With Me & Playbirds, Gerald Thomas & Peter Rogers ventured into previously unexplored territory and plunged into spoofing adult movies.

The result was ghastly.

Featuring only a handful of the regular cast, most of them had flown the coup by this time. Kenneth Williams only appeared in the movie as a favour to Gerald Thomas, Kenneth Conner (the unsung hero of the Carry On series in our opinion) tries to have fun with the appalling material, but just ends up making himself look foolish - a great pity. Of the others, only Joan Sims, Peter Butterworth & belated regular Jack Douglas are on hand to help tie this car-crash of a movie to the Carry On series.

One joke that will have a modern audience spitting their drinks across the room involves Dino "Mind Your Language" Shafeek as an immigration officer at an airport.

The saddest slight of all in this non-starter of a movie has Kenneth Conner as Leyland, the Ambassador's chauffeur, showing Suzanne Danielle around London, in a bid to get her sexually excited - driving past Nelson's Column, he starts gurning and emoting "corr", or terms along those lines. Dear oh dear...

Ultimately, Carry On Emmannuelle was too tame for the Dirty Mac Brigade and too strong for those who loved the more innocent Carry On movies. No wonder this was the last regular entry in the series.
