A tawdry tribute to Britain's number one sex symbol of the 1970's - Mary Millington. The film (made only a year after her tragic suicide) is a mixture of archive footage, interviews and new sex scenes.

John M. East,
The first portion of this film is a documentary on the adults-only entertainment industry prevelent in London's Soho District. The second details the trials and tribulations of a struggling photographer, his unsatisfied wife, and their friend Emmanuelle, as they try to make it big in Soho. They decide their ticket to success will come by blackmailing a wealthy adult film tycoon. Written by

EMMANUELLE IN SOHO sounds like one of the sleaziest films ever; just the combination of that character and the setting says it all. But this extremely low budget movie has nothing to do with the official Emmanuelle series or indeed the Black Emmanuelle series either. Instead it's a laughably inept slice of British softcore nonsense, in which Emmanuelle is a supporting character in a hugely uninteresting storyline. The tale sees erotic photographer Paul Benson (Kevin Fraser, with the worst haircut in the world) being ripped off by his sleazy boss (writer John M. East, a truly repugnant character) while his wife tries to make ends meet on the stage in a dodgy striptease production.
It's all very silly, padded out with endless softcore sex sequences that are anything but titillating. The actress playing Emmanuelle, Angie Quick, looks and acts no different to your typical Page 3 model. Julie Lee, a half British/half Oriental beauty, looks better, but ruins the illusion whenever she speaks; her Sheffield accent puts paid to that exotic appeal. Lee was to die in a horrific car accident soon after this production, leaving EMMANUELLE IN SOHO an odd epitaph to her non-existent career.
