The first Emmanuelle film was the Italian Io, Emmanuelle from 1969, which wasn't a commercial success. Five years later came the French movie Emmanuelle with the Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel in the title role, who came to be the actress best identified with the role. This film pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable on screen at the time, with its sex scenes, as well as scenes involving skinny-dipping, masturbation, the "Mile High Club", rape, and a noted scene in which a dancer is shown inserting a cigarette into her vagina. This film was created and directed by the noted French director Just Jaecklin.
Unlike many films that tried to avoid an X-rating, the first Emmanuelle film embraced it, and became a huge international success with a viewing audience to date estimated at over 300 million viewers worldwide. It remains one of France's most successful films, and reportedly played in some theatres there for years.
Several sequels starring Kristel followed, beginning with Emmanuelle 2 which is also known as Emmanuelle: The Joys of a Woman in its US release, and also Emmanuelle L’antivierge in some European press materials, including the soundtrack LP and CD.
Kristel stepped away from the role briefly in the 1980s, yielding to younger actresses, but returned for the seventh feature film, and continued to make cameo appearances as an older Emmanuelle in a number of cable TV films. She also appeared in a number of films that either capitalized upon or parodied her Emmanuelle image, such as the American sex comedy Private Lessons.
None of the actresses who went on to play Emmanuelle would go on to become as successful. One of the better-known actresses to take the part in the 1980s (which, in some parts of Europe, was considered as coveted as James Bond) was American b-movie actress Monique Gabrielle.
After the last official Emmanuelle theatrical feature film, Emmanuelle au 7ème ciel, ASP took Arsan's character to made-for-cable outings instead. These included a science fiction series in the 1990s called Emmanuelle in Space starring American actress/model Krista Allen in one of her first major roles. More recently, Emmanuelle: The Private Collection introduced Natasja Vermeer in the lead role for another slew of video episodes, one featuring an erotic showdown with Count Dracula himself.
French distribution company Studio Canal has recently acquired home video rights for a number of the Emmanuelle movies, and has been releasing remastered DVD editions of the films in several markets.
In a number of press releases, ASP vowed their next project, Emmanuelle Tango would be a return to theatrical distribution for the franchise.
At the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, Alain Siritzky announced that a worldwide search was underway for a new Emmanuelle to star in a new series of films. Production on the first film was scheduled to begin in September.
