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)

Furs on Film – The Couch Trip (1988)

The late 80s: fur is on the way out, and mediocre comedy is on the way in. Thus we find ourselves at one of Dan Aykroyd’s less beloved comedies: The Couch Trip. We’re in luck, though, because this update has nothing at all to do with Aykroyd. The Couch Trip – The Film The overarching… Read More Furs on Film – The Couch Trip (1988)

Furs on Film – Bluebeard (1972)

We return to what this blog is known for, reviewing fur fashion in terrible movies. This week, it is the later Richard Burton vehicle Bluebeard. Burton went from one of the most respected dramatic actors in Hollywood to closing out his career with a guest spot on The Fall Guy. This is also a period… Read More Furs on Film – Bluebeard (1972)

Gallery Update – Shanghai Express

Another ancient gallery update this 2023 New Year, as I celebrate(ish) the fact that I managed to do this for an entire year after my “minor sabbatical.” I thought about trying some year-end roundup kind of post, but let’s face facts, it’s not like I can do a “Top 10 Fur Movies of 2022.” So,… Read More Gallery Update – Shanghai Express

Furs on TV – Snow Queen (2002)

It’s almost Christmas, or it will be the week after this goes live. I may take that off, so here’s the best I can do for a Christmas update. The funny thing is Christmas movies may seem like something that would make fur more likely because they are nominally associated with cold weather. But, let… Read More Furs on TV – Snow Queen (2002)

Furs on Film – Respect (2021)

Time to play “how quickly can I get a copyright claim on Youtube” with the most recent film I have ever reviewed: Respect. Since it came out in 2021 and has real fur, you better believe it’s a period piece, just like everything else I have reviewed released after 2010. You’d think there was something… Read More Furs on Film – Respect (2021)

Gallery Update – The Awful Truth

The biggest white fox fur coat committed to film happened in 1937. Sadly, I have to report there hasn’t been much effort put into besting it, and the odds of anyone trying grow dimmer with each passing decade. If you wish to dispute the title, the suggestion form is always open, though please note we… Read More Gallery Update – The Awful Truth

Furs on Film – Rabid (1977)

Well, I’m not waiting for next Halloween, so let’s do this. This is the second film from noted horror director David Cronenberg. Unlike many horror films I’ve reviewed, this one has the distinction of being: “mid,” as the youths say these days. So, let’s get Rabid with our devotion to late ‘70s zombie pandemic horror. … Read More Furs on Film – Rabid (1977)
