Furs on Film – Never Say Never Again (1983)

“I don’t have time for this because I want to be playing Starfield” Month begins with low-effort post #1: Never Say Never Again. The film and a particular secondary antagonist are pretty well known in several remote little internet huts you don’t want to barge into without knocking.  Never Say Never Again – The Film… Read More Furs on Film – Never Say Never Again (1983)

Furs on Film – Harlow (1965)

So July is “tragic blonde month,” and we end with one more: Jean Harlow. Harlow biopics have the advantage of being set in the 1930s, the second-best fur decade after the 1980s (and most of the 1970s, but they’re all just one great streak). In 1965, Hollywood did the thing and released two different Harlow… Read More Furs on Film – Harlow (1965)

Furs on Film – Blonde (2022)

Hey, I got the right controversial Monroe “biopic” this time. I made light of the fact that Norma Jean and Marylin was so long, and this is even longer. All the better to draw out the agony, I suppose. So let’s dissect one of the least controversial aspects of Blonde: the real fur fashion. Blonde… Read More Furs on Film – Blonde (2022)

Furs on Film – Norma Jean & Marilyn (1996)

Time to cover that controversial Marilyn Monore biopic. What? What? Norma Jean & Marilyn – The Film This version is a “made-for-television” movie from 1996. The “television” in question was HBO, so today, it would be a twelve-part prestige series, not a movie. She’d spend seven hours in her small town to really hammer home… Read More Furs on Film – Norma Jean & Marilyn (1996)

Furs on Film – Cougar Hunting (2011)

Okay, let’s induct another cinematic classic today. So classic that I was not aware it existed at all before… well, now I can’t even remember where I saw it mentioned. Ultimately that does not matter, as it will remain one of the many great mysteries of the film Cougar Hunting, including how the hell they… Read More Furs on Film – Cougar Hunting (2011)

Furs on Film – G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

Confession time. Well, confession outside of this entire website. That would be my misspent youth raised by toy commercials. One, in particular, is relevant to this update. It’s funny; there were only “two” seasons of G.I. Joe, but 96 episodes total. I spent most of them with a terrible secret: my favorite character was The… Read More Furs on Film – G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

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 – Every Day’s a Holiday (1937)

I have neglected the classics over the past year but will fold some good Old Hollywood films back into the program. What better way to start than with a new entry in the 20% club? Okay, thanks to a lot of ermine, it gets across the finish line, but it’s legit. It is our latest… Read More Furs on Film – Every Day’s a Holiday (1937)

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)
