Furs on Film – At Long Last Love (1975)

Finally, I get around to posting that notoriously bad film set in the 1930s starring Burt Reynolds and Madaline Khan. Didn’t you already do that, you ask? No, silly, I’m talking about the musical one: At Long Last Love. When I say notoriously bad, I mean it. City Heat was just run-of-the-mill bad; this one… Read More Furs on Film – At Long Last Love (1975)

Furs on Film – Daughters of Darkness (1971)

Artsy ‘70s lesbian vampire flick plus furs? I’ll take one, please. Daughters of Darkness is probably a little too artsy and deconstructive, but I also watch Marvel movies for fun, so I’m probably not allowed to have an opinion on matters cinematic. I think the filmmakers wanted the “vampire’s” nature to be subjective. There are… Read More Furs on Film – Daughters of Darkness (1971)

Furs on Film – Magnum Cop (1978)

If The Bitch “helped to revive Joan Collins’ flagging career,” according to Wikipedia at least, where was that career flagging? In cheap Italian exploitation fare. Yes, let’s take a quick trip to Austria, where we find Dame Collins on the set of Magnum Cop. Magnum Cop – The Film & The Furs This is a… Read More Furs on Film – Magnum Cop (1978)

Furs on Film – Ritual of Evil (1970)

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… Read More Furs on Film – Ritual of Evil (1970)

Furs on Film – Funny Lady (1975)

More color. 70’s color! 70’s color about the ’20s and ’30s! The ’70s don’t get enough credit for some lovely furs because, well, it’s hard to see anything in the shadow of the blinding brilliance of the ’80s. Most period pieces are a product of their time, so lucky for us; there was no problem… Read More Furs on Film – Funny Lady (1975)

Furs on Film – Snapshot (1979)

How bout an Ozploitation flick? This one is fun for a few reasons. It’s one of the first I’ve posted with a unique combination of multiple release titles and a severed pig’s head. TCM showed it as Snapshot, as that was the name it was released under in its country of origin, Australia. It can… Read More Furs on Film – Snapshot (1979)

Fur on Film – Darktown Strutters (1975)

It’s late at night, and Turner Classic Movies’ core demo has long since retired for the evening. This is where strange things happen, as TCM goes all film history buff on you. Sometimes it’s unintentionally amusing old “educational” films, foreign stuff, and sometimes it’s obscure Blaxploitation from the heart of the 1970s. Yes, I’m exploiting… Read More Fur on Film – Darktown Strutters (1975)

Furs in Film – The Great Bank Hoax (1977)

As mentioned in the last film update, films from the ’30s with an heiress are “must-record.” Films about small towns are… fur fashion kryptonite, so to speak, even if they’re also from the ’70s. Sometimes wild, random hunches pay off, as they did in the case of The Great Bank Hoax. Maybe it was 1977… Read More Furs in Film – The Great Bank Hoax (1977)

Furs in Film – The Dr. Phibes Films (1971-72)

City Heat is a movie from the ’80s about the ’30s, two great fur fashion decades that film that go great together. Here we have a couple of movies from the ’70s about the ’20s. The films in question would be a couple of low-budget camp horror films featuring Vincent Price as a guy who… Read More Furs in Film – The Dr. Phibes Films (1971-72)
