Furs on Film – Murder-Rock: Dancing Death (1984)

Lucio Fulci is a big name in the scary movie world. He’s responsible for some genre classics in zombie and Gallio films and worked in many genres over a decades-long career. So, naturally, since I’m talking about him, we’ll be looking at one of his flops. Yes, horror fans may sing the praises of Zombi… Read More Furs on Film – Murder-Rock: Dancing Death (1984)

Furs on Film – Over the Moon (1939)

Welcome back to the other greatest fur fashion decade, the 1930s. I had never heard of this film until I saw Merle Oberon’s photo in white fox from the film. The film is a bit obscure and thus turned out to be almost impossible to find in anything but a colorized DVD. So, while I’m… Read More Furs on Film – Over the Moon (1939)

Furs on Film – What a Way to Go! (1964)

Back this week to fill in a bit more of that rather great-fur anemic decade, the 1960s. At least, the ’60s still have the charm of not being the 90s. This one is able to row against the prevailing fashion tide primarily thanks to the liberal use of fantasy sequences and parody of Hollywood “excess.”… Read More Furs on Film – What a Way to Go! (1964)

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 TV – Moonlighting Seasons 1 and 2

Posting has been a little thin in these, the dog days of summer. Not that that’s an actual excuse, mind you, it just sounds nice. In any case, I think this one may be a little popular. My stats are clear on one thing, readers like color, and readers love the ’80s. Hey, I love… Read More Furs on TV – Moonlighting Seasons 1 and 2

Mamie Van Doren – Dyed Fox Wrap

Picturegoer Film Annual 1960-61 Originally uploaded by CharmaineZoe Going all PG-13 on you this morning. This is Mamie Van Doren, whose career fell, sadly, in the 50’s and 60’s, thus depriving her of a lot of opportunities for nice furs on screen. Even more disappointing as she was a member of the “blonde bombshell” club,… Read More Mamie Van Doren – Dyed Fox Wrap

Furs on Film – Silk Stockings (1957)

The 1950s weren’t entirely a wasteland of “elegant and tasteful” (read: boring) mink. There were exceptions, usually in the form of stoles, and this next update is the poster child of 1950s fox stoles. It also contains my main weakness: pink-dyed fox. Silk Stockings is, like fox stoles, something the ’50s presented a lot of… Read More Furs on Film – Silk Stockings (1957)

Furs On Television – Bring Me the Head of Dobie Gillis (1988)

Heading back to more familiar territory, the 1980s, with one from “the vaults” of older caps. Always nice to be reminded what a truly spectacular decade that was. With any luck, the fashion cycle will replay it sooner rather than later. I’m filing this under “television” and not film because it was a TV movie,… Read More Furs On Television – Bring Me the Head of Dobie Gillis (1988)
