Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

There’s not a lot that is remarkable about Rent-a-Cop. At best, it’s an ‘80s cop show with naughty words and flirtations with more explicit violence. I don’t think it deserved the attention from the Razzies, but the only particularly remarkable thing about it is how well Liza kept warm throughout the winter exterior shoots. And,… Read More Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

Furs on Film – Billion Dollar Brain (1967)

It’s the sixties, and a certain super spy is burning up the silver screen. If you’re United Artists, finding more spies to make movies with was a pretty good idea. One of them was “Harry Palmer,” originally intended to be a bit of a blue-collar contrast to the more well-known spy, he went Bond in… Read More Furs on Film – Billion Dollar Brain (1967)

Furs on Film – Over the Moon (1939)

Welcome back to the other greatest fur fashion decade, the 1930s. I had never heard of this film until I saw Merle Oberon’s photo in white fox from the film. The film is a bit obscure and thus turned out to be almost impossible to find in anything but a colorized DVD. So, while I’m… Read More Furs on Film – Over the Moon (1939)

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 – Magnum Cop (1978)

If The Bitch “helped to revive Joan Collins’ flagging career,” according to Wikipedia at least, where was that career flagging? In cheap Italian exploitation fare. Yes, let’s take a quick trip to Austria, where we find Dame Collins on the set of Magnum Cop. Magnum Cop – The Film & The Furs This is a… Read More Furs on Film – Magnum Cop (1978)

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 – Juliet of the Spirits (1965)

I have recently learned there are films not made in English-speaking countries, and some of those films have furs in them. I suspect this is just a sneaky way to further complicate my quixotic efforts to see all the good stuff and post about it. I suspect if you take this opening paragraph seriously, you’re… Read More Furs on Film – Juliet of the Spirits (1965)
