Furs on Film – Baba Yaga (1973)

The concept of Baba Yaga has been mentioned in everything from John Wick to DnD. One might argue that is the power of good myth, but I’m going to argue that’s the power of the public domain. If the real Baba Yaga does show up one day, she’ll bring along many lawyers. Baba Yaga –… Read More Furs on Film – Baba Yaga (1973)

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 – 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 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 – American Hustle (2013)

Hey, two ‘80s updates in a row. Sorta, and it’s the one thing that keeps me going cinematically, ‘80s period pieces with real fur. This one hits even harder because I vaguely recall seeing the evening news reporting on the events this movie dramatized when I was but a wee webmaster. Not only that, it… Read More Furs on Film – American Hustle (2013)

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 – 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 – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

Time to post that 60’s spy film where the female lead wears a red fox fur coat for a big part of the movie. No, not that one, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Yes, it’s the odd-man-out-Bond that is still 100% cannon. I have no opinion on Lazenby’s Bond, but I have many on the… Read More Furs on Film – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)

Furs on Film – Billion Dollar Brain (1967)

It’s the sixties, and a certain super spy is burning up the silver screen. If you’re United Artists, finding more spies to make movies with was a pretty good idea. One of them was “Harry Palmer,” originally intended to be a bit of a blue-collar contrast to the more well-known spy, he went Bond in… Read More Furs on Film – Billion Dollar Brain (1967)
