Furs on Film – Terminal (2018)

Mentioned I was aware of this back when I posted I, Tonya. This is the film where Margot wears the good stuff, not some crappy rabbit jacket. According to Rotten Tomatoes, that may be the only good thing about Terminal. This film is also notable because it was released in 2018 and is not a… Read More Furs on Film – Terminal (2018)

Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Decided to cover an underground gem from the mid-90s that most people will be surprised to learn has a lot of fur fashion. Also decided to see how many readers could pick up on sarcasm. Yes, it’s Casino, the film that associated Sharon Stone with “chinchilla” in certain circles. It’s also the ‘90s, so it… Read More Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Furs on Film – The Stud (1978)

Today we learn that there are sequels that are better than the original. Unfortunately, it’s because we’re talking about the original. The Stud was the first of what might have been a trilogy, but, despite the success of the sequel (The Bitch), a third film was never made. Thus Forever Lulu remains the top 1980s… Read More Furs on Film – The Stud (1978)

Furs on Film – Star! (1968)

Julie Andrews in a musical? Box office gold, Jerry! Except when it’s not. Yes, we continue the fine tradition of flops with great fur fashion. The 1968 musical Star! landed three years after The Sound of Music with high studio expectations. Things did not go quite as well as hoped; as you may have noticed,… Read More Furs on Film – Star! (1968)

Furs on Film – Piercing (2018)

How do we know the 2018 film Piercing is set in the 1980s? Is it the poorly animated “Feature Presentation” graphic that opens it and the digitally inserted VHS artifacts during the production credits? Is it the taxis and phone booths? Is it the upscale call girl using a hotel landline? No, it’s the blue… Read More Furs on Film – Piercing (2018)

Furs on Film – Via Montenapoleone (1987)

Let’s discuss the limits of technology. Namely, upscaling technology, where the results can be impressive but are still highly dependent on the quality of the source material. In old programmer lingo: garbage in, garbage out. Thus, when you start with fuzzy-VHS-quality standard def, you are not destined for 4k greatness. Thus do I adjust your… Read More Furs on Film – Via Montenapoleone (1987)

Furs on Film – Every Day’s a Holiday (1937)

I have neglected the classics over the past year but will fold some good Old Hollywood films back into the program. What better way to start than with a new entry in the 20% club? Okay, thanks to a lot of ermine, it gets across the finish line, but it’s legit. It is our latest… Read More Furs on Film – Every Day’s a Holiday (1937)

Furs on Film – Chicago (2002)

It’s a Saturday and a movie from 2002, so it’s probably a period piece. This one is a musical, which is generally regarded as a lot better than the last musical I covered. Chicago is set in the 1920s, and I suspect there’s a little “embellishment” in the costume department, but that works out well… Read More Furs on Film – Chicago (2002)
