suzanne's sexy send-up
Over the years the Carry On series has successfully taken the mickey out
of several outstanding films like Cleopatra and Henry VIII And His Six
Wives. now that super French sex symbol Emmanuelle comes in for an
hilarious send-up in Carry On Emmannuelle (note that her name is spelt
with two 'n's to distinguish from her from the original). And its a
landmark in the Carry Ons, for its the thirtieth in the phenomenal series.
Played by delectable newcomer Suzanne Danielle, Emmannuelle is the wife of
the French Ambassador to London (Kenneth Williams), and she flies to join
him by Concorde. Mid-Flight she seduces a young man named Theodore (Larry
Dann) who from then on professes undying love for the beautiful
ambassadress of free love.
Arriving in London, she is introduced to the staff at the Embassy who
include Lyons the butler (Jack Douglas), known to her as 'Loins', Mrs
Dangle the housekeeper (Joan Sims), Leyland the chauffeur (Kenneth Connor)
and Richmond the doddering retainer (Peter Butterworth).
She proceeds to have clandestine affairs with members of the Government
and the Opposition, and when she refuses to run away with the lovesick
Theodore and live with him and his Mum (Beryl Reid), he reveals her
indiscretions to the press, making her the most famous sex symbol in
Carry On Emmannuelle, a Rank release, has not only two N's but two A's as
well - the AA Censor's Certificate - so you can tell what a saucy affair
picture caption: Emile Prevent (Kenneth Williams) is more
interested in building up his muscles than yielding to the amorous
advances of his wife Emmannuelle (Suzanne Danielle).
