2021 Update, fixed dead embed. Sure, you’ve seen it before, but it’s a really nice shot of one of the most “famous” furs in silver screen history. This is the fur with top billing in a film with a very crowded marquee, perfectly deployed upon the shoulders of the lovely Miss Stanwyck. I found this in… Read More The Manton Crystal Fox
There was a shorter, more obvious title for this, but I went the more verbose version to spare everyone the indignity. This is a beautiful publicity shot from 1942’s Lady of Burlesque, featuring that most lovely and rather appropriately sized white fox muff. And the bird… that… bird. I can verify that Photoshop CS5’s content aware fill… Read More Barbara Stanwyck In Lady of Burlesque
Comments on the last post got me thinking a little harder about my favorites, so I decided to try and get them down, all official-like. So here is my entirely subjective personal opinion on the top 12 fur-wearing actresses of the last 80 or so years (mainly minus the last 20 since they… sucked).

A change of pace this week with a long overdue update to the Fur Stars gallery, focusing on the third leg of the 30’s triumvirate of most-famous fur wearers: Barbara Stanwyck. One could easily focus on Dietrich, Garbo, and Stanwyck alone and cover some of the decade’s most fur rich films. Instead of rehashing the… Read More Stanwyck In Fur – The Minor Films
Today we look at one of the more famous films I’ve profiled, while mostly ignoring everything that made it famous.

Yes, Miss Stanwyck’s career highlight may not be until 1938, but she was no slouch in the fur wearing… Read More Furs on Film – Baby Face
Barbara Stanwyck Originally uploaded by Gary Cooper 79 Taking a little break after the Manton post and the fact that TCM has been rather dry of late. Here’s a shot of Miss Stanwyck from another good fur movie of her’s: Baby Face.
Time to kick off the New Year with something I’ll not be able to out-do: the best fur fashion film of all time: The Mad Miss Manton. I was wavering on that opinion because I hadn’t really seen it in a while, but now that I’ve dug through most every frame with a glistening guard… Read More Furs on Film – The Mad Miss Manton
Happy Thanksgiving to all. As a follow on to a decade of awesome fur fashion, the 1940’s stunk nearly as much as the 90’s. Their only redeeming grace, the fact fur didn’t simply vanish, it simply became far more conservative. Mink ruled the day, in coats and jackets. Elegant and… boring. I refer to it… Read More Furs in Film – Lady of Burlesque
