Meet Monique Gabrielle!
As a big fan of cult cinema, I am always looking for offbeat gems that were made in the 70’s and 80’s, when filmmakers had a more “raucous” attitude – and the Cult Movie Queens who acted in them did as well!
That led me, of course, to Monique Gabrielle! She appeared in dozens of movies – some more mainstream than others, but all entertaining!
For this “2020 sex kitten countdown”, I am taking a look at some of her best films!
I originally discovered Monique when I saw this photo posted on a website:
Of course, after searching the wild world of the internet, I discovered that were was a much more provocative version of the photo as well:
Time To Share More From Monique!
Monique was the December 1982 “Penthouse” Pet of the Month – and you can see why she was chosen:
Monique started working in films in the early 80’s, with small roles in “Airplane II: The Sequel,” “Night Shift,” “Young Doctors in Love” and “Flashdance!”
Her biggest mainstream success was her role as the young woman who tries to seduce Tom Hanks in “Bachelor Party.”
But forget all that – it was in cult cinema that she ruled!
Her most memorable roles include the cult classic “Chained Heat!”
Monique wasn’t the only “cult movie Queen” to appear in this classic – this film included a shower scene between Sybil Danning and Linda Blair!
What a film! You can see the original trailer and lots more from the film by clicking on my story here:
Monique’s career was on a roll, and it included one very iconic character!
Gabrielle was the uninhibited sexual adventuress in “Emmanuelle V,” and what a plot it was!
Emmanuelle has a streak of bad luck that starts when she is stripped by a mob of adoring fans at the Cannes Film Festival. Her rotten luck continues when the dictator of a banana republic uses the screening of one of her films as a pretext to get her into his country. Our heroine finds herself admitted into his harem as a slave.
She was also in “Young Lady Chatterly 2” and played a dual role as the sweet princess and her evil twin in “Deathstalker II!”
Monique went on to appear in films like “Amazon Women on the Moon,” “Silk 2,” the campy “The Return of Swamp Thing,” and of course, the reason I found her originally:
Yep, she was the nerdy, repressed Megan in the delightfully dippy “Evil Toons!”
I posted a story about this fun little gem, directed by Fred Olen Ray – you can see more pictures from this terrific little horror film by clicking on my story here:
Gabrielle had a great fun of films in the 80’s, and was always willing to show off for us as well!
