Furs on Film – Harlow (1965)

So July is “tragic blonde month,” and we end with one more: Jean Harlow. Harlow biopics have the advantage of being set in the 1930s, the second-best fur decade after the 1980s (and most of the 1970s, but they’re all just one great streak). In 1965, Hollywood did the thing and released two different Harlow… Read More Furs on Film – Harlow (1965)

Furs on Film – Blonde (2022)

Hey, I got the right controversial Monroe “biopic” this time. I made light of the fact that Norma Jean and Marylin was so long, and this is even longer. All the better to draw out the agony, I suppose. So let’s dissect one of the least controversial aspects of Blonde: the real fur fashion. Blonde… Read More Furs on Film – Blonde (2022)

Furs on Film – Norma Jean & Marilyn (1996)

Time to cover that controversial Marilyn Monore biopic. What? What? Norma Jean & Marilyn – The Film This version is a “made-for-television” movie from 1996. The “television” in question was HBO, so today, it would be a twelve-part prestige series, not a movie. She’d spend seven hours in her small town to really hammer home… Read More Furs on Film – Norma Jean & Marilyn (1996)

Furs on Film – L’arcangelo (1969)

Ah, Italian cinema, the home of some of the most beautiful women in the world. Today we look at L’arcangelo, aka The Archangel, which features a glamorous blonde in the lead role. Where might this stunning beauty hail from? What bustling, historic Italian town produced this breathtaking blonde? *Checks notes* Oklahoma City? The hell? L’arcangelo… Read More Furs on Film – L’arcangelo (1969)

Furs on Film – Seven Golden Men (1965)

While the “swinging” Sixties aren’t my favorite fur fashion decade, it turns in some good stuff occasionally. And, hey, you’re more likely to find fur in a ’60s film than anything made after 1990. Granted, you may be wondering what a movie about Seven Golden Men has to do with fur fashion, but fortunately, those… Read More Furs on Film – Seven Golden Men (1965)

Furs on Film – Every Day’s a Holiday (1937)

I have neglected the classics over the past year but will fold some good Old Hollywood films back into the program. What better way to start than with a new entry in the 20% club? Okay, thanks to a lot of ermine, it gets across the finish line, but it’s legit. It is our latest… Read More Furs on Film – Every Day’s a Holiday (1937)

Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)

Want a horror movie set in the desert where the ladies wear fur? Sure, we got that too. Interestingly, White of the Eye relentlessly establishes the southwest Arizona scenery every chance it gets, all so Cathy Moriarty can cruise around it in a red fox jacket. Oh, and a horny housewife can pull the ole… Read More Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)

Furs on Film – Asso (1981)

Our tour of Italy continues with a film destined to make my inner middle-schooler giggle: Asso. The title translates to “Ace,” and more mature individuals would have used that name. Personally, I would have gone with “Pretty Lady Wears A Lot of Furs.” Asso – The Film Ahem, “Ace” (Adriano Celentano), the greatest poker player… Read More Furs on Film – Asso (1981)

Furs on Film – Madame Claude (2021)

Yes, I know about Madame Claude. This popped into the suggestion box multiple times, along with some brave soul who may have thought they were making a funny by suggesting Cruella. Well, jokes on them. I mean, there is a site search; check it out before you spam me. Madame Claude 2021 – The Movie… Read More Furs on Film – Madame Claude (2021)
