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 TV – Snow Queen (2002)

It’s almost Christmas, or it will be the week after this goes live. I may take that off, so here’s the best I can do for a Christmas update. The funny thing is Christmas movies may seem like something that would make fur more likely because they are nominally associated with cold weather. But, let… Read More Furs on TV – Snow Queen (2002)

Furs on Film – Daughters of Darkness (1971)

Artsy ‘70s lesbian vampire flick plus furs? I’ll take one, please. Daughters of Darkness is probably a little too artsy and deconstructive, but I also watch Marvel movies for fun, so I’m probably not allowed to have an opinion on matters cinematic. I think the filmmakers wanted the “vampire’s” nature to be subjective. There are… Read More Furs on Film – Daughters of Darkness (1971)

Furs on Film – Girls About Town (1931)

Enough of this 2020s BS; let’s head back to simpler times where the women were of low moral character, and the Hays Code had yet to be implemented. Amusingly, the low moral character in question of these Girls About Town is of the fiscal variety, though I’m sure the film producers would have no qualms… Read More Furs on Film – Girls About Town (1931)

Ice Follies of 1938 Poster with Joan Crawford

I’ve mentioned Ice Follies of 1939 before, and here’s the poster. Fortunately, there’s only a little artistic license, as the outfit in the poster is actually in the film. If anything, the artist may have been a little generous to those white fox cuffs, rendering them a bit larger and fuller than the actual on-screen… Read More Ice Follies of 1938 Poster with Joan Crawford

Furs on Film – This is the Night (1932)

Back this week with an actual update, one I’ve been sitting on for a while now. Another entry from the early ’30s, this one pulls out the big gun right up front but doesn’t wholly fizzle later. It also boasts two prominent female roles. That’s a sad rarity for films from this period. Put your… Read More Furs on Film – This is the Night (1932)

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)

Lupe Velez In White Fox

I’m cheating, because I linked to a different version of this via text a while back, but ondiraiduveau upped it to Flickr in an embeddable format, so, here it is. A beautiful shot, in subject, composition, and fashion. Ladies with gleaming obsidian locks can’t go wrong framing them with thick white fox fur. They have… Read More Lupe Velez In White Fox
