Ginger Rogers Wearing a Red Fox Cape

Ginger Rogers wearing a red fox cape

Originally uploaded by Silverbluestar

Housekeeping weekend, so Miss Rogers and her rather full red fox fur cape will have to keep everyone company. I updated the Film Gallery main page with all the updates I’ve done… for a while. Included links to both the galleries and the reviews for each film. Should make it easier for anyone new to the site to check out the back catalog. I shall endeavor to keep that current with future updates.

Interestingly enough, as I organized by decade, I found I’ve yet to post anything from the 1960s. Heck, I’ve managed to find something from the 1990s and 2000s, but the 60s had yet eluded me. Now, it’s not so much that the 60s were like the 90s, of course, they were merely a decade of mink. A veritable cornucopia of “brown paper bag” and “church lady” fur. A snoozer, if you will.

So, as readers were kind enough to supply feedback for the 1990s, I’ll ask… where are all the big, thick, keep-you-from-dozing-off fox furs in the 1960s?

  1. Not a lot from the sixties I am afraid:

    Penelope 1966 starring Natalie Wood.
    It features her in a lynx trimmed coat and a blue mink plus Lila Kedrova sporting a poncho trimmed with brown fox fur.

    Pocketful of Miracles 1961 featuring Hope Lange carrying a white fox stole and later wearing a silver wrap trimmed with white fox.

    The Grasshopper 1969 I only have a clip from this film but showgirls are wearing extravagant white fur trimmed outfits and matching hats which are huge; the fur appears to be white fox.

    In frustration of being able to find very little, I also include the following:

    Mister Ed 1964 featuring Mae West wearing (have you guessed?)a white fox stole

    Cheating slightly:

    Pillow Talk 1959 Doris Day with that gorgeous lynx collar

    Something for Everyone 1970 starring Angela Lansbury wearing a gorgeous jacket trimmed with lashings of white fox and also another character wearing a huge white fox stole.

  2. Penelope sounds familiar, may have to check the archives for that one. Besides, I’m rather smitten with Miss Wood in her prime.

    I would not have thought Mae West would have shown up on Mister Ed, but since she did, knowing it was in white fox isn’t surprising, heh. I found the clip on YouTube (search: “Mae West Mr Ed”). While she’s a little ‘advanced’ to be vamping up 30 years later, but I admit her foxes from Myra Breckenridge are a bit of a guilty pleasure.

    Wait… Natalie Wood… fox… 60’s… Holy crap, I just remembered something… Great.
