is the rarest of the Laura Gemser Black Emanuelle movies
and - perhaps - the rarest of all Ms Gemser's films in general [at
least second to her INTERNATIONAL
PROSTITUTION from director Sergio Gobbi in 1980].
It was retrieved from one of the only known prints in the world.
In the late '70s,
director Joe D'Amato (Aristide Massaccesi) teamed with actress Laura
Gemser for a series of Black Emanuelle films, starting with
EMANUELLE IN BANGKOK (1976). This was followed by the quintessential
IN AMERICA (1977) and then, on the heals of popular jungle
exploitation movies (i.e., EATEN
ALIVE BY CANNIBALS, DEEP
RIVER SAVAGES, CANNIBAL
FEROX et al) came EMANUELLE
AND THE LAST CANNIBAL TRIBE (1977). The fourth and fifth entries
in the series were EMANUELLE
INVESTIGATES VIOLENCE TO WOMEN
(aka EMANUELLE AROUND THE WORLD) and EMANUELLE:
ROAD OF PROSTITUTION.
The film on this page is considered the sixth and final Black Emanuelle
Perhaps the most
fascinating thing about this film is the production itself. Joe D'Amato
- with editor Bruno Mattei - made it from nothing. It's composed almost
entirely of assorted clips from other D'Amato films, redubbed in French
with a different narrative, resulting in a brand new 1983 release.
The various clips used here are from BLACK
EMANUELLE IN BANGKOK, BLACK
AND THE LAST CANNIBAL TRIBE,
ROAD OF PROSTITUTION, and BLACK
EMANUELLE (a film not owned by D'Amato). He then added hardcore
inserts, some newly shot and some from SEXY
NIGHTS OF THE LIVING DEAD and PORNO
HOLOCAUST. Trouble erupted when Black Emanuelle director
Bitto Albertini slapped the production company with a lawsuit due
to unauthorized use of scenes from his movie. This immediately stopped
all Euro distribution and the film slipped between the cracks.
