This film attempts to untangle the bizarre legacy of the many movie-mythologies that emerged following the huge success of the erotic blockbuster Emmanuelle in 1974, starring the timeless Sylvia Kristel. Leading to its own series of official sequels, as well as an Italian cluster of “Emanuelle” films (notice the spelling) starring the legendary Laura Gemser, this insightful expose guide viewers through on of the most bizarre and long-lasting franchises of contemporary times. Features contributions from Emmanuelle director Just Jaekin as well as performers Brinke Stevens (Emmanuelle 4), Lori Morrissey (Emmanuelle In Space), Scandinavian sex icon Christina Lindberg (Maid In Sweden), British sex film director Pete Walker (Cool It Carol) and such leading film historians as Kim Newman and David McGillivray.
