Furs on Film – The First Wives Club (1996)

At this rate, I’ll be done with the ‘90s pretty soon. The First Wives Club probably lands in that gray area where the costume designers (correctly) figured the “elite” were still wearing furs even though the post-80s backlash was in full swing. So, we get some real fur by way of authenticity, which is still… Read More Furs on Film – The First Wives Club (1996)

Furs on Film – The Infiltrator (2016)

This is the last ‘80s period piece I have queued up at the moment, which means entries that start with “2” in the year of release will be far less common. Tip of the big fur hat to all the costume designers who demand authenticity in their historical films,  but I just wish the 1980s… Read More Furs on Film – The Infiltrator (2016)

Furs on Film – Factory Girl (2006)

On to the next 100 reviews, I suppose. Fair warning, there is no abundance of softcore flicks with lots of big fox furs, so you’ll have to make do with a lot of regular flicks with big fox furs. 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 – 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 – American Hustle (2013)

Hey, two ‘80s updates in a row. Sorta, and it’s the one thing that keeps me going cinematically, ‘80s period pieces with real fur. This one hits even harder because I vaguely recall seeing the evening news reporting on the events this movie dramatized when I was but a wee webmaster. Not only that, it… Read More Furs on Film – American Hustle (2013)

Furs on Film – House of Gucci (2021)

The one great thing about running this blog is that, at no point do I ever find myself especially troubled by all the new releases I “need to cover.” With today’s addition, I’m pretty much caught up with *checks notes* the past ten years. Feel free to tell me I’m wrong (with as much detail… Read More Furs on Film – House of Gucci (2021)

Furs on Film – The Stuff (1985)

If you’re in the business of reviewing films for marginally esoteric fashion content, specific genres are generally to be avoided. Even in the ‘80s, teens in horror movies did not typically find themselves in oversized fox fur coats. That’s not to say there aren’t exceptions to the horror movie rule, and if you’re making a… Read More Furs on Film – The Stuff (1985)

Joan Bennett – Fox Fur Cape

Joan Bennett Originally uploaded by EmMe09 From a 1936 publicity photo. Guessing it’s blue fox, which wasn’t all too common at the time, at least as compared to white. Rather partial to both so I’m good either way. Granted, I’m also partial to hot fuchsia dyed fox, so I probably can’t be trusted in a… Read More Joan Bennett – Fox Fur Cape
