Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Decided to cover an underground gem from the mid-90s that most people will be surprised to learn has a lot of fur fashion. Also decided to see how many readers could pick up on sarcasm. Yes, it’s Casino, the film that associated Sharon Stone with “chinchilla” in certain circles. It’s also the ‘90s, so it… Read More Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Furs on Film – The Stud (1978)

Today we learn that there are sequels that are better than the original. Unfortunately, it’s because we’re talking about the original. The Stud was the first of what might have been a trilogy, but, despite the success of the sequel (The Bitch), a third film was never made. Thus Forever Lulu remains the top 1980s… Read More Furs on Film – The Stud (1978)

Furs on Film – Star! (1968)

Julie Andrews in a musical? Box office gold, Jerry! Except when it’s not. Yes, we continue the fine tradition of flops with great fur fashion. The 1968 musical Star! landed three years after The Sound of Music with high studio expectations. Things did not go quite as well as hoped; as you may have noticed,… Read More Furs on Film – Star! (1968)

Furs on Film – Piercing (2018)

How do we know the 2018 film Piercing is set in the 1980s? Is it the poorly animated “Feature Presentation” graphic that opens it and the digitally inserted VHS artifacts during the production credits? Is it the taxis and phone booths? Is it the upscale call girl using a hotel landline? No, it’s the blue… Read More Furs on Film – Piercing (2018)

Furs on Film – Via Montenapoleone (1987)

Let’s discuss the limits of technology. Namely, upscaling technology, where the results can be impressive but are still highly dependent on the quality of the source material. In old programmer lingo: garbage in, garbage out. Thus, when you start with fuzzy-VHS-quality standard def, you are not destined for 4k greatness. Thus do I adjust your… Read More Furs on Film – Via Montenapoleone (1987)

Furs on Film – Chicago (2002)

It’s a Saturday and a movie from 2002, so it’s probably a period piece. This one is a musical, which is generally regarded as a lot better than the last musical I covered. Chicago is set in the 1920s, and I suspect there’s a little “embellishment” in the costume department, but that works out well… Read More Furs on Film – Chicago (2002)

Furs on Film – The Couch Trip (1988)

The late 80s: fur is on the way out, and mediocre comedy is on the way in. Thus we find ourselves at one of Dan Aykroyd’s less beloved comedies: The Couch Trip. We’re in luck, though, because this update has nothing at all to do with Aykroyd. The Couch Trip – The Film The overarching… Read More Furs on Film – The Couch Trip (1988)

Furs on Film – Bluebeard (1972)

We return to what this blog is known for, reviewing fur fashion in terrible movies. This week, it is the later Richard Burton vehicle Bluebeard. Burton went from one of the most respected dramatic actors in Hollywood to closing out his career with a guest spot on The Fall Guy. This is also a period… Read More Furs on Film – Bluebeard (1972)

Furs on Film – Respect (2021)

Time to play “how quickly can I get a copyright claim on Youtube” with the most recent film I have ever reviewed: Respect. Since it came out in 2021 and has real fur, you better believe it’s a period piece, just like everything else I have reviewed released after 2010. You’d think there was something… Read More Furs on Film – Respect (2021)
