Furs on Film – The Shadow (1994)

How many of you remember the “before times?” You know, back before Marvel movies, when superhero movies kinda sucked? We return to this period with The Shadow, a superhero movie that kinda sucked. While the plot, pacing, acting, and overall cinematic quality may be subpar, we are here to honor the costume designer’s 100% faithfulness… Read More Furs on Film – The Shadow (1994)

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)

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 updating this blog with some degree of… Read More Furs on Film – Dracula’s Daughter (1936)

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!

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)
