Furs on Film – The Bitch (1979)

Guess I should put some more effort into this. Thus, as of the current status of my review of all fur media, I present the greatest fur film of the 1970s, The Bitch. It has a couple of things in common with the greatest fur film of the 1930s, The Mad Miss Manton: lots of… Read More Furs on Film – The Bitch (1979)

Furs on Film – Snapshot (1979)

How bout an Ozploitation flick? This one is fun for a few reasons. It’s one of the first I’ve posted with a unique combination of multiple release titles and a severed pig’s head. TCM showed it as Snapshot, as that was the name it was released under in its country of origin, Australia. It can… Read More Furs on Film – Snapshot (1979)

Furs on Film – Lady with a Past (1932)

This week we have an entry from 1932 that, considering the ratio it racks up, I’d have preferred it be shot in 1938. That’s a bit of a quibble, as it has some good furs, and the viewer can certainly take their time and enjoy them. Besides, it was either this or a ’70s Aussie… Read More Furs on Film – Lady with a Past (1932)

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)

Stanwyck In Fur – The Minor Films

A change of pace this week with a long-overdue update to the Fur Stars gallery, focusing on the third leg of the 30’s triumvirate of most-famous fur wearers: Barbara Stanwyck. One could easily focus on Dietrich, Garbo, and Stanwyck alone and cover some of the decade’s most fur rich films. Instead of rehashing the ground… Read More Stanwyck In Fur – The Minor Films

Furs on Film – Success at Any Price (1934)

Let’s stay in the year 1934, and stick with high-handed melodrama, while we’re at it. Success at Any Price illustrates a point that I’d describe with Shanghai Express if TCM would just show it again… that even fur I’m not a huge fan of can be put to great use. Success at Any Price –… Read More Furs on Film – Success at Any Price (1934)

Furs on Film – Manhattan Melodrama (1934)

Words evolve, and to a certain extent, the term “melodrama” no longer carries with it a particularly positive connotation. Indeed, when used in the sentence “don’t be so melodramatic” or connected with any original movie from Lifetime. It probably wasn’t so big a deal back in 1934 when it was slapped on a low-budget crime… Read More Furs on Film – Manhattan Melodrama (1934)

Furs on Film – The Great Race (1965)

I’m posting a film from 1965 about events in 1908. It will join previous time-shifting entries like City Heat and the Dr. Phibes films. Still, it’s a film from 1965, and it will neatly fill the gap in the decade list. Besides, The Great Race has Natalie Wood in 5 different furs in the space… Read More Furs on Film – The Great Race (1965)

Ginger Rogers Wearing a Red Fox Cape

Originally uploaded by Silverbluestar Housekeeping weekend, so Miss Rogers and her rather full red fox fur cape will have to keep everyone company. I updated the Film Gallery main page with all the updates I’ve done… for a while. Included links to both the galleries and the reviews for each film. Should make it easier… Read More Ginger Rogers Wearing a Red Fox Cape
