Furs on Film – Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008)

When I first saw Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, I thought it was an excellent throwback/satire of my favorite era of filmmaking (fur fashion-wise at least), the 1930s. It was initially meant to be adapted as a film in 1939, and it just took seventy years to make it to the screen. Lucky for… Read More Furs on Film – Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008)

Gallery Update – What a Way to Go!

Updated the gallery and added a clip for What a Way to Go!, the 1964 comedy starring Shirley MacLaine. Still the best cinematic use of pink-dyed fox fur to date. Since I don’t think modern Hollywood will put out anything soon that will significantly alter the “pink fox fur on film” rankings, it should enjoy… Read More Gallery Update – What a Way to Go!

Furs on Film – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

Time to post that 60’s spy film where the female lead wears a red fox fur coat for a big part of the movie. No, not that one, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Yes, it’s the odd-man-out-Bond that is still 100% cannon. I have no opinion on Lazenby’s Bond, but I have many on the… Read More Furs on Film – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

Gallery Update – Death of a Scoundrel

Revisiting perhaps the most mink-filled entry I’ve done to date: Death of a Scoundrel from 1956. I have new images and a clip, all clean and crisp, like a nostalgic view of the ’50s. Which is not what you’ll find in the movie, at least. Since it’s from the ’50s, you’re only allowed to wear… Read More Gallery Update – Death of a Scoundrel

Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

There’s not a lot that is remarkable about Rent-a-Cop. At best, it’s an ‘80s cop show with naughty words and flirtations with more explicit violence. I don’t think it deserved the attention from the Razzies, but the only particularly remarkable thing about it is how well Liza kept warm throughout the winter exterior shoots. And,… Read More Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

Furs on Film – Billion Dollar Brain (1967)

It’s the sixties, and a certain super spy is burning up the silver screen. If you’re United Artists, finding more spies to make movies with was a pretty good idea. One of them was “Harry Palmer,” originally intended to be a bit of a blue-collar contrast to the more well-known spy, he went Bond in… Read More Furs on Film – Billion Dollar Brain (1967)

Furs on Film – Over the Moon (1939)

Welcome back to the other greatest fur fashion decade, the 1930s. I had never heard of this film until I saw Merle Oberon’s photo in white fox from the film. The film is a bit obscure and thus turned out to be almost impossible to find in anything but a colorized DVD. So, while I’m… Read More Furs on Film – Over the Moon (1939)

Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)

Want a horror movie set in the desert where the ladies wear fur? Sure, we got that too. Interestingly, White of the Eye relentlessly establishes the southwest Arizona scenery every chance it gets, all so Cathy Moriarty can cruise around it in a red fox jacket. Oh, and a horny housewife can pull the ole… Read More Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)

Furs on Film – Asso (1981)

Our tour of Italy continues with a film destined to make my inner middle-schooler giggle: Asso. The title translates to “Ace,” and more mature individuals would have used that name. Personally, I would have gone with “Pretty Lady Wears A Lot of Furs.” Asso – The Film Ahem, “Ace” (Adriano Celentano), the greatest poker player… Read More Furs on Film – Asso (1981)
