Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Decided to cover an underground gem from the mid-90s that most people will be surprised to learn has a lot of fur fashion. Also decided to see how many readers could pick up on sarcasm. Yes, it’s Casino, the film that associated Sharon Stone with “chinchilla” in certain circles. It’s also the ‘90s, so it… Read More Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

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)

Furs on Film – Penelope (1966)

I have unintentionally been flipping back and forth between drama and comedy for the past few updates, so let’s keep that ball rolling. It’s swinging ‘60s time again, a decade that is not the best for my preferred type of fur fashion but is not without its charms. Charm #1 is Natalie Wood, who returns… Read More Furs on Film – Penelope (1966)

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 – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

Time to post that 60’s spy film where the female lead wears a red fox fur coat for a big part of the movie. No, not that one, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Yes, it’s the odd-man-out-Bond that is still 100% cannon. I have no opinion on Lazenby’s Bond, but I have many on the… Read More Furs on Film – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

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)

Elizabeth Taylor in Fur

A brief detour into “current events” for this blog. Elizabeth Taylor’s recent passing gives us a reason to take a look back. Unfortunately, her most high profile roles occurred in the most low profile fur fashion years. The IMDb suggests she started in 1942 and was particularly big in the 50’s and 60’s. She did some things in… Read More Elizabeth Taylor in Fur

Furs on Film – The Millionairess (1960)

I am a big fan of Sophia Loren, but the trajectory of her international stardom rests firmly in the late ’50s and ’60s. Those were the year’s fur fashion was merely phoning it in, a dreary wasteland of minks that were better suited to funerals than glamorous ladies on the big screen. Loren compounded this… Read More Furs on Film – The Millionairess (1960)
