Eugénie (fictional character)

The fictional character Eugénie can be attributed to Marquis de Sade's novella Eugénie de Franval (1788). Jess Franco filmed three films with Eugénie in the title.

1788, Mar. 1: The Marquis de Sade begins work on his short novel Eugénie de Franval, which he completes in six days.

Marquis De Sade [...]

Just as Pasolini took a Sade novel and transposed it onto the 20th century, several films made by exploitation filmmaker Jess Franco also use Sade's novels as inspiration. Franco filmed Justine in 1968, Eugénie, The Story of Her Journey Into Perversion (an adaptation of Philosophy in the Bedroom) in 1969, Eugénie de Sade (based on Sade's short story Eugénie de Franval) in 1970. --Lindsay Hallam, Jan 2004, http://www.sensesofcinema.com/contents/04/30/whips_and_bodies.html

Eugenie - The Story of Her Journey Into Perversion (1970) - Jesus Franco [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]
Innocent young Eugenie (Marie Liljedahl, luscious star of "Inga") is taken to an island paradise where she is initiated into a world of pleasure and pain controlled by the sinister Dolmance ("Lord of the Rings'" Christopher Lee). But when she surrenders to her own forbidden fantasies, Eugenie becomes trapped in a frenzy of drugs, sadomasochism, and murder. Can a frightened girl in the grip of carnal perversion find sanctuary in the orgies of the depraved? Jess Franco, the infamous director of "Vampyros Lesbos" and "Venus in Furs," brings you this legendary erotic classic, based on the Marquis De Sade's notorious "Philosophy in the Boudoir" and co-starring Jack Taylor (Succubus) and Maria Rohm. Presented completely uncut, this rarely seen shocker remains one of the most controversial explorations of extreme sexuality in European cinema history! --amazon.com

music by Bruno Nicolai; Marquis de Sade en esp. La Philosophie dans le boudoir are quoted extensively. I guess you could say that this is the way Sade's philosophy was spread to the masses in the late 20th century.
