I am trying something a little different. In an effort to update this blog with some additional regularity, I have decided to drop a “duration” requirement. I’ve toyed with this recently with the Christmas Vacation post and the Cruella posts. The latter was just a shitpost, honestly. It exists purely for my amusement. So, many films with only one or two scenes are now fair game.
They’ll get one blog post, no special gallery page, and I won’t have to write a friggin essay.
Fur Fashion Review of Ritual of Evil (1970)
Ritual of Evil is an NBC made-for-tv movie, which totally throws my site taxonomy in the crapper. Thanks for that, NBC. Executive decision: TV movies are movies.
It is the story of psychiatrist Dr. David Sorrell’s investigation of a cult in order save, everyone say it with me, an heiress. Outside of “fox,” heiress is my favorite word in the English language. Because where heiresses go, fox soon follows, according to Hollywood.
Disclaimer: before 1990.
Let’s meet her, shall we?
It is being taken by… dun-dun-dun… the witch! The aforementioned witch is not wearing fur. Missed opportunity there, NBC.
We do get a reverse view of this outfit; that’s about it. The lady down below is Diana Hyland, who plays the witch.
Loey mugs for the camera, but suffice to say, this is not a pivotal scene for anything other than the huge, over the shoulder width white fox fur collar.
That’s it. It’s all of 32 seconds long, and there’s nothing else worth mentioning in the entire film. So here’s the gallery. If you desperately want to know more about the movie, check it out on the IMDb or Wikipedia, as it was “notable” enough.
