Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

There’s not a lot that is remarkable about Rent-a-Cop. At best, it’s an ‘80s cop show with naughty words and flirtations with more explicit violence. I don’t think it deserved the attention from the Razzies, but the only particularly remarkable thing about it is how well Liza kept warm throughout the winter exterior shoots. And,… Read More Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

Furs on Film – The Ice Follies of 1939 (1939)

I know; I start adding the year to the title of the posts and quickly choose a film that makes it look stupid. That’s on-brand, at least. I mentioned this film before, but that was over ten years ago, so you are forgiven for not remembering. It’s another one on my old “must-post” list: The… Read More Furs on Film – The Ice Follies of 1939 (1939)

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!

Lili Damita in Fur from The Match King

2021 Update – Fixed Dead Embed. Here’s another from last week’s Flickr stream-of-the-week. A rarer gem, the fur from the 1932 film The Match King. I included it in an “omnibus” update, because it was really the only decent fur in the film, but quite the decent fur nonetheless. “Big updates” may be a little… Read More Lili Damita in Fur from The Match King

Furs on Film – Funny Lady (1975)

More color. 70’s color! 70’s color about the ’20s and ’30s! The ’70s don’t get enough credit for some lovely furs because, well, it’s hard to see anything in the shadow of the blinding brilliance of the ’80s. Most period pieces are a product of their time, so lucky for us; there was no problem… Read More Furs on Film – Funny Lady (1975)

Barbara Stanwyck In Lady of Burlesque

There was a shorter, more obvious title for this, but I went the more verbose version to spare everyone the indignity. This is a beautiful publicity shot from 1942’s Lady of Burlesque, featuring that most lovely and rather appropriately sized white fox muff. And the bird… that… bird. I can verify that Photoshop CS5’s content aware fill… Read More Barbara Stanwyck In Lady of Burlesque
