Furs on Film – Baba Yaga (1973)

The concept of Baba Yaga has been mentioned in everything from John Wick to DnD. One might argue that is the power of good myth, but I’m going to argue that’s the power of the public domain. If the real Baba Yaga does show up one day, she’ll bring along many lawyers. Baba Yaga –… Read More Furs on Film – Baba Yaga (1973)

Furs on Film – Mr. Magoo (1997)

Let’s do another one-scene wonder: Mr. Magoo. Because it’s great, and because I only have to create one page for it. Here’s the edit off the jump. I’m tired of all the terrible “DALL-E” BS, but AI does have its uses… Mr. Magoo – The Film You don’t need to know anything about the movie,… Read More Furs on Film – Mr. Magoo (1997)

Furs on Film – Sokaktan gelen kadin (1984)

Let’s check out a different corner of the world: Turkey in the 1980s. Do I speak Turkish? No. Did the film have subtitles? No. Did this dissuade me in the least? No. Because I think it is safe to say that silver fox fur’s language is universal. So, let’s take a very plot-optional look at… Read More Furs on Film – Sokaktan gelen kadin (1984)

Furs on TV – Lace & Lace II (1984-85)

Hey, television, I’m supposed to be paying attention to that, too. So, let’s turn our dials back to the prestige TV mini-series era. It’s also the era of fabulous furs, the 1980s, which works out well for us. While many were sweeping in scope, many boiled down to short soap operas with a colossal location… Read More Furs on TV – Lace & Lace II (1984-85)

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)
