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 – Dracula’s Daughter (1936)

A Secretary in a White Fox Cape I’ve been spoiling you. Seven color updates in a row? Okay, four color updates, ten years, and three color updates. Still, I double-checked the math; it adds up. So you get to eat your veggies today with a film I was hoping to do back when I was… Read More Furs on Film – Dracula’s Daughter (1936)

Furs on Film – The Bitch (1979)

This is our note that this is an R-rated movie, and our update references some “adult themes.” Continue at your own discretion. The Bitch – The Film The titular character, Fontaine Khaled (Joan Collins), is a woman fallen on hard times, something the film only tells and in no way shows, thankfully. She’s divorced her… Read More Furs on Film – The Bitch (1979)

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 – I’ll Take Romance (1937)

Hey, I should post one of these “review” things… Admittedly the allure of just tossing out something I find on Flickr each week is pretty strong, but this is what I’m “supposed” to be doing, after all. This entry is from the late ’30s, that most special of times, and this film is another fine… Read More Furs on Film – I’ll Take Romance (1937)

Claudette Colbert in Fur – “The Gilded Lily” 1935

While Claudette Colbert is not a particular favorite of mine from the period (she’s not even my favorite Colbert), she does look rather nice in this exemplary white fox fur cape from 1935. I haven’t seen The Gilded Lily, but it is going on the “remember to record” list, that’s for sure. Sadly I don’t… Read More Claudette Colbert in Fur – “The Gilded Lily” 1935

Furs on Film – Lady with a Past (1932)

This week we have an entry from 1932 that, considering the ratio it racks up, I’d have preferred it be shot in 1938. That’s a bit of a quibble, as it has some good furs, and the viewer can certainly take their time and enjoy them. Besides, it was either this or a ’70s Aussie… Read More Furs on Film – Lady with a Past (1932)

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

Furs on Film – Love Is A Headache (1938)

And we’re back. When I find out who the “we” is in this one-man operation, I’ll be sure to fire them. We return with another of the increasingly rare gems that TCM has seen fit to dole out from that most halcyon of fur fashion years, 1938. It is a lovely film about a Broadway… Read More Furs on Film – Love Is A Headache (1938)
