Furs on Film – The Gumshoe Kid (1990)

It’s VHS time! While I love the 80s, there is quite a bit of media from that time that is only available in postage stamp resolution by modern standards. So forgive the lower quality; AI upscaling can only do so much at this point. I hereby swear, should The Gumshoe Kid be released with a… Read More Furs on Film – The Gumshoe Kid (1990)

Furs on Film – The First Wives Club (1996)

At this rate, I’ll be done with the ‘90s pretty soon. The First Wives Club probably lands in that gray area where the costume designers (correctly) figured the “elite” were still wearing furs even though the post-80s backlash was in full swing. So, we get some real fur by way of authenticity, which is still… Read More Furs on Film – The First Wives Club (1996)

Furs on Film – The Last Metro (1980)

The ’80s were great for a lot of reasons. Okay, mostly the furs, but you could also make movies where Nazis were the bad guys without some whiny bitches on Twitter complaining about it. So let’s take a ride on The Last Metro and hope no one shows up in the comments to claim that… Read More Furs on Film – The Last Metro (1980)

Furs on Film – Girls About Town (1931)

Enough of this 2020s BS; let’s head back to simpler times where the women were of low moral character, and the Hays Code had yet to be implemented. Amusingly, the low moral character in question of these Girls About Town is of the fiscal variety, though I’m sure the film producers would have no qualms… Read More Furs on Film – Girls About Town (1931)

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 – Shanghai Express (1932)

So, everything is back to “normal,” which means all the reviews have been updated to replace the example shots, and all the galleries have been returned. I wanted to get that out of the way before I went ahead with a new post. I haven’t done this since October, so I should probably start with… Read More Furs on Film – Shanghai Express (1932)

Dietrich in Fur – Shanghai Express

Not sure I’ve mentioned this… oh, yes, I have… but I’m a big fan of this scene from Shanghai Express and continue to wait patiently for TCM to show the film, which used to air almost every freaking month, again. Ironically this publicity shot provides a much clearer view of exactly how much fur “isn’t”… Read More Dietrich in Fur – Shanghai Express

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 – 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)
