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)

Furs on Film – The Thin Man Films

Time to revisit the gentleman detective genre with what is arguably the most iconic of them all: The Thin Man. The adventures of Nick and Nora Charles spanned six films between 1934 and 1947, and as you can imagine, the ones from the 1930s will be featured a bit more prominently in this update. The… Read More Furs on Film – The Thin Man Films

Furs on Film – Singing in the Rain (1952)

I want to say this isn’t a “fallback” update, but it is. I think I’ll have to readjust my standards if I’m going to have a steadier stream of updates. Or the next decade’s Thirtiesesque renaissance of enormous fur fashions needs to get here sooner. (You heard it here; first, I hope.) Grab your umbrellas,… Read More Furs on Film – Singing in the Rain (1952)

Ginger Rogers Wearing a Red Fox Cape

Originally uploaded by Silverbluestar Housekeeping weekend, so Miss Rogers and her rather full red fox fur cape will have to keep everyone company. I updated the Film Gallery main page with all the updates I’ve done… for a while. Included links to both the galleries and the reviews for each film. Should make it easier… Read More Ginger Rogers Wearing a Red Fox Cape

Furs on Film – Mr. Dodd Takes the Air (1937)

Okay, back on point with this entry from 1937. There’s nothing like the late ’30s to deliver that warm, comfortable, familiar feeling, like an oversized full-length fox coat. Bundle up for Mr. Dodd Takes the Air. Mr. Dodd Takes the Air – The Film Mr. Dodd Takes the Air is one of those stories everyone… Read More Furs on Film – Mr. Dodd Takes the Air (1937)

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)

Furs in Film – The Films of The Falcon (1941-1945)

I know what you’re thinking… I like the Lone Wolf, but what do you have in an ornithologically themed gentleman detective? Well, you are in luck. Today we have the films of a gentleman (and his brother) called The Falcon. Michael Arlen created The Falcon in a short story in Town and Country and was… Read More Furs in Film – The Films of The Falcon (1941-1945)
