Mini-Update – Furs On Film – Reckless

As distractions abound, we’ll go with this, the most efficient way to characterize the 1935 film Reckless, staring Jean Harlow:

Yes, that is a single link to a Flickr photo.  The shot is probably better than any still I have for it at the moment, and that is the singular fur in the entire film.  It’s a wonderfully huge white fox fur wrap that sits high on her shoulders and covers half her head in profile.  So, basically, it could have been a little larger… but good effort.

There’s no other fur in the film and this one is only around for about a minute in total.  The formal “fur  ratio” is about 1%.  It’s a really great 1% though.  Harlow’s white fox in this one is a classic. It’s near the beginning of the film, so you can skip the rest once she takes it off.
