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 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 TV – Pelts (2006)

The monkey’s paw shrivels as the last wish is spoken. The last couple didn’t go so well. Still, you’re confident that asking for a mainstream piece of media that explores some of the historically noted eroticism of fur fashion is a simple wish. What could go wrong? The Pelts Blu-ray smacks you in the face. … Read More Furs on TV – Pelts (2006)

Furs on Film – Factory Girl (2006)

Like Factory Girl, a 60s period piece from the mid-’00s featuring a reliable modern fur wearer,… Read More Furs on Film – Factory Girl (2006)

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)

Furs in Film – Why Did I Get Married (2007)

Film subjects of this blog have tended towards a few specific periods. It is not my fault fashion does not stand still, and that doesn’t mean there aren’t promising signs as we slog through a nearly 20-year drought in fine on-screen fur fashions. We have Tyler Perry to thank for this modest little reminder, which… Read More Furs in Film – Why Did I Get Married (2007)
