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 – 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)

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 – 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 – 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)

Furs on Film – Over the Moon (1939)

Welcome back to the other greatest fur fashion decade, the 1930s. I had never heard of this film until I saw Merle Oberon’s photo in white fox from the film. The film is a bit obscure and thus turned out to be almost impossible to find in anything but a colorized DVD. So, while I’m… Read More Furs on Film – Over the Moon (1939)

Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)

Want a horror movie set in the desert where the ladies wear fur? Sure, we got that too. Interestingly, White of the Eye relentlessly establishes the southwest Arizona scenery every chance it gets, all so Cathy Moriarty can cruise around it in a red fox jacket. Oh, and a horny housewife can pull the ole… Read More Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)

Furs on Film – Asso (1981)

Our tour of Italy continues with a film destined to make my inner middle-schooler giggle: Asso. The title translates to “Ace,” and more mature individuals would have used that name. Personally, I would have gone with “Pretty Lady Wears A Lot of Furs.” Asso – The Film Ahem, “Ace” (Adriano Celentano), the greatest poker player… Read More Furs on Film – Asso (1981)
