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 – 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)

Furs on Film – House of Gucci (2021)

The one great thing about running this blog is that, at no point do I ever find myself especially troubled by all the new releases I “need to cover.” With today’s addition, I’m pretty much caught up with *checks notes* the past ten years. Feel free to tell me I’m wrong (with as much detail… Read More Furs on Film – House of Gucci (2021)

Furs on Film – The Stuff (1985)

If you’re in the business of reviewing films for marginally esoteric fashion content, specific genres are generally to be avoided. Even in the ‘80s, teens in horror movies did not typically find themselves in oversized fox fur coats. That’s not to say there aren’t exceptions to the horror movie rule, and if you’re making a… Read More Furs on Film – The Stuff (1985)

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 – Dracula’s Daughter (1936)

A Secretary in a White Fox Cape 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… Read More Furs on Film – Dracula’s Daughter (1936)
