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 in Film – Why Did I Get Married (2007)

Film subjects of this blog have tended towards a few specific periods. It is not my fault fashion does not stand still, and that doesn’t mean there aren’t promising signs as we slog through a nearly 20-year drought in fine on-screen fur fashions. We have Tyler Perry to thank for this modest little reminder, which… Read More Furs in Film – Why Did I Get Married (2007)

Fur Super Star – Marlene Dietrich

I’d say I’m starting this series out on an easy one, but that’s the point. Marlene Dietrich is one of those figures who is quite clearly associated with furs. Her on screen fur wardrobe is stocked with classics. This list is not meant to be exhaustive. I’m concentrating on films I have clips from, and… Read More Fur Super Star – Marlene Dietrich
