Furs on Film – The Crime Is Mine (2023)

“Low-quality source month” has become “I knew I put up the suggestion box for a reason” month as some kind soul stuffed the ballot box with something useful.  So, let’s look at Mon crime, or, for those not speaking French (like me), The Crime Is Mine. The Crime Is Mine – The Film Madeleine Verdier… Read More Furs on Film – The Crime Is Mine (2023)

Furs on Film – Harlow (1965)

So July is “tragic blonde month,” and we end with one more: Jean Harlow. Harlow biopics have the advantage of being set in the 1930s, the second-best fur decade after the 1980s (and most of the 1970s, but they’re all just one great streak). In 1965, Hollywood did the thing and released two different Harlow… Read More Furs on Film – Harlow (1965)

Furs on Film – The Jayne Mansfield Story (1980)

I’m not sure why July became “tragic blonde month,” but I figured we might as well pile on Jayne Mansfield while we’re at it. Also, I haven’t visited the greatest decade in a while, so the CBS television movie The Jayne Mansfield Story brings us back to 1980 just in time. Since it earned a… Read More Furs on Film – The Jayne Mansfield Story (1980)

Furs on Film – Blonde (2022)

Hey, I got the right controversial Monroe “biopic” this time. I made light of the fact that Norma Jean and Marylin was so long, and this is even longer. All the better to draw out the agony, I suppose. So let’s dissect one of the least controversial aspects of Blonde: the real fur fashion. Blonde… Read More Furs on Film – Blonde (2022)

Furs on Film – Norma Jean & Marilyn (1996)

Time to cover that controversial Marilyn Monore biopic. What? What? Norma Jean & Marilyn – The Film This version is a “made-for-television” movie from 1996. The “television” in question was HBO, so today, it would be a twelve-part prestige series, not a movie. She’d spend seven hours in her small town to really hammer home… Read More Furs on Film – Norma Jean & Marilyn (1996)

Furs on Film – L’arcangelo (1969)

Ah, Italian cinema, the home of some of the most beautiful women in the world. Today we look at L’arcangelo, aka The Archangel, which features a glamorous blonde in the lead role. Where might this stunning beauty hail from? What bustling, historic Italian town produced this breathtaking blonde? *Checks notes* Oklahoma City? The hell? L’arcangelo… Read More Furs on Film – L’arcangelo (1969)

Furs on Film – Cougar Hunting (2011)

Okay, let’s induct another cinematic classic today. So classic that I was not aware it existed at all before… well, now I can’t even remember where I saw it mentioned. Ultimately that does not matter, as it will remain one of the many great mysteries of the film Cougar Hunting, including how the hell they… Read More Furs on Film – Cougar Hunting (2011)

Furs on Film – Seven Golden Men (1965)

While the “swinging” Sixties aren’t my favorite fur fashion decade, it turns in some good stuff occasionally. And, hey, you’re more likely to find fur in a ’60s film than anything made after 1990. Granted, you may be wondering what a movie about Seven Golden Men has to do with fur fashion, but fortunately, those… Read More Furs on Film – Seven Golden Men (1965)

Furs on Film – Maybe I Do (2023)

Let’s see, checking notes, reading summary. Pausing. Reading again. Cross-referencing. Realization is slowly dawning. Maybe I Do is not a period piece! It is not a period piece and features white fox fur! I guess the math eventually caught up, and a new release slipped through a very tiny crack. And landed with a dull… Read More Furs on Film – Maybe I Do (2023)

Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Decided to cover an underground gem from the mid-90s that most people will be surprised to learn has a lot of fur fashion. Also decided to see how many readers could pick up on sarcasm. Yes, it’s Casino, the film that associated Sharon Stone with “chinchilla” in certain circles. It’s also the ‘90s, so it… Read More Furs on Film – Casino (1995)
