Furs on Film – Dracula’s Daughter (1936)

I’ve been spoiling you. Seven color updates in a row? Okay, four color updates, ten years, and three color updates. Still, I double-checked the math; it adds up. So you get to eat your veggies today with a film I was hoping to do back when I was updating this blog with some degree of… Read More Furs on Film – Dracula’s Daughter (1936)

Furs on TV – Moonlighting Seasons 1 and 2

Posting has been a little thin in these, the dog days of summer. Not that that’s an actual excuse, mind you, it just sounds nice. In any case, I think this one may be a little popular. My stats are clear on one thing, readers like color, and readers love the ’80s. Hey, I love… Read More Furs on TV – Moonlighting Seasons 1 and 2

Furs on Film – This is the Night (1932)

Back this week with an actual update, one I’ve been sitting on for a while now. Another entry from the early ’30s, this one pulls out the big gun right up front but doesn’t wholly fizzle later. It also boasts two prominent female roles. That’s a sad rarity for films from this period. Put your… Read More Furs on Film – This is the Night (1932)

Furs on Film – The Millionairess (1960)

I am a big fan of Sophia Loren, but the trajectory of her international stardom rests firmly in the late ’50s and ’60s. Those were the year’s fur fashion was merely phoning it in, a dreary wasteland of minks that were better suited to funerals than glamorous ladies on the big screen. Loren compounded this… Read More Furs on Film – The Millionairess (1960)

Furs on Film – Dance, Girl, Dance (1940)

Finally, we are back with a full-on, legit, single film update post. It has been a while, TCM; thanks for finally ponying up a good one. This one fits into a few of my favorite categories. Foremost, it’s another entry from 1940 where the costume director didn’t get the memo about that regrettable sea change… Read More Furs on Film – Dance, Girl, Dance (1940)

Furs on Film – The Thin Man Films

Time to revisit the gentleman detective genre with what is arguably the most iconic of them all: The Thin Man. The adventures of Nick and Nora Charles spanned six films between 1934 and 1947, and as you can imagine, the ones from the 1930s will be featured a bit more prominently in this update. The… Read More Furs on Film – The Thin Man Films

Furs on Film – Times Square Lady (1935)

If you were paying attention to the last update, this one shouldn’t be a surprise. Or maybe it should be since I actually “found the time” to do it. We return to the warm, thick fox blanket that is the 1930s with Times Square Lady, a 1935 film starring Virginia Bruce. Times Square Lady –… Read More Furs on Film – Times Square Lady (1935)

Furs on Film – The Mad Miss Manton (1938)

Time to kick off the New Year with something I’ll not be able to outdo: the best fur fashion film of all time: The Mad Miss Manton. I was wavering on that opinion because I hadn’t really seen it in a while, but now that I’ve dug through almost every frame with a glistening guard… Read More Furs on Film – The Mad Miss Manton (1938)
