Emmanuelle, or Emanuelle, is the lead character in a series of French soft core pornographic movies based on a character created by Emmanuelle Arsan in the novel The Joys of a Woman. The character first appeared in a movie called Io, Emmanuelle in 1969 and was played by Erika Blanc. The character was recreated in Emmanuelle in 1974, played by actress Sylvia Kristel, who is probably the actress best identified with the role. In subsequent films, Kristel alternated with Laura Gemser in the role. The Gemser films were in Italian, and in those the character's name was spelt "Emanuelle" (suggesting that these films might not be "official"). The films were spoofed in 1978, when the last Carry On film, Emmannuelle, which starred actress Suzanne Danielle, with Kenneth Williams.

Numerous other films and even a science fiction cable TV series carrying the Emmanuelle title starring Krista Allen have been produced, but most of these have little or no connection to Arsan's character. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmanuelle [Apr 2005]
