Furs on Film – American Dreamer (1984)

It’s DVD time! Unlike The Gumshoe Kid, there is an outside chance American Dreamer may one day be delivered in a slightly higher resolution, but for now, we will have to make do with advanced technology. This exemplifies that we’re still at the “garbage in, garbage out” stage of AI upscaling. There’s only so much… Read More Furs on Film – American Dreamer (1984)

Furs on Film – Anna Karenina (2012)

Do you know what we need more of in 2022? Tragedy. Wait, no, I mean Keira Knightley in a bunch of fur. So let’s break out the most recent adaption of the Tolstoy classic, Anna Karenina, and check out Keira and her Oscar-winning Imperial Russian costume design.  Anna Karenina – The Film Holy crap, look… Read More Furs on Film – Anna Karenina (2012)

Furs on Film – Sokaktan gelen kadin (1984)

Let’s check out a different corner of the world: Turkey in the 1980s. Do I speak Turkish? No. Did the film have subtitles? No. Did this dissuade me in the least? No. Because I think it is safe to say that silver fox fur’s language is universal. So, let’s take a very plot-optional look at… Read More Furs on Film – Sokaktan gelen kadin (1984)

Furs on Film – Factory Girl (2006)

On to the next 100 reviews, I suppose. Fair warning, there is no abundance of softcore flicks with lots of big fox furs, so you’ll have to make do with a lot of regular flicks with big fox furs. Like Factory Girl, a 60s period piece from the mid-’00s featuring a reliable modern fur wearer,… Read More Furs on Film – Factory Girl (2006)

Furs on Film – At Long Last Love (1975)

Finally, I get around to posting that notoriously bad film set in the 1930s starring Burt Reynolds and Madaline Khan. Didn’t you already do that, you ask? No, silly, I’m talking about the musical one: At Long Last Love. When I say notoriously bad, I mean it. City Heat was just run-of-the-mill bad; this one… Read More Furs on Film – At Long Last Love (1975)

Furs on TV – Lace & Lace II (1984-85)

Hey, television, I’m supposed to be paying attention to that, too. So, let’s turn our dials back to the prestige TV mini-series era. It’s also the era of fabulous furs, the 1980s, which works out well for us. While many were sweeping in scope, many boiled down to short soap operas with a colossal location… Read More Furs on TV – Lace & Lace II (1984-85)

Furs on Film – Angel (1937)

Time to go back to the 1930s, still co-champ of best fur-film-decade with the 1980s. Sadly overlooked by generations who cannot conceive of a time when they couldn’t turn their noses up at black-and-white film because that is all there was. Angel not only is from the 30s but stars one of the top fur… Read More Furs on Film – Angel (1937)

Furs on Film – Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008)

When I first saw Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, I thought it was an excellent throwback/satire of my favorite era of filmmaking (fur fashion-wise at least), the 1930s. It was initially meant to be adapted as a film in 1939, and it just took seventy years to make it to the screen. Lucky for… Read More Furs on Film – Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008)
