Petticoats and Crinolines in Films


UPDATE SOURCES TEXT EMAIL FEATURES HOME CHAT BULLETIN IMAGES GROUPS BOOKS PINUPS ADS

Please take notice: These films mostly contain lovely visions of bouffant skirts, particularly of the 50's style, and MIGHT show peeks of petticoats. Very few show full petti-views
(these will be noted). We are also now adding films which feature classic crinolines and petticoat as well. You might also review the corsetfilm list located at staylace.com

Many of the corset-era productions show gowns and petticoats as well!

Any rating comments obviously refer to the quality of the film vis-ā-vis frou-frou

1996   JACK -- Ms. Drescher wears a very cute, bouncy short dress (almost like a "cigarette girl"!) with crinies sticking out. FRAN DRESCHER

1957

JAMBOREE -- Some nice 50s petti-dance scenes, with flips! KAY MEDFORD
1943   JANE EYRE -- Jane herself is much too serious and austere for much in the way of pettis, but the little girl for whom she becomes governess wears this darling style in lots of scenes. She was played by the famous child star Margaret O'Brien [who must have been smothered in more fussy, old fashioned pettis than any girl this century; just look at her filmography: "Jane Eyre," "Meet Me in St Louis," "Little Women," "The Secret Garden"...  Review by Pammie   Stillclips  #1   #2      BUY DVD
1947 JASSY -- "...a veritable cornucopia of gorgeous gowns belled out with what must be innumerable underskirts (though very little on show).  There is a particularly gorgeous 'number' in white, with pale blue ribbon trim."   Review by Fiona  
AVAILABLE ONLY ON VHS - BUY IT
MARGARET LOCKWOOD
 1980   THE JAYNE MANSFIELD STORY (TVM) -- Sometimes the great scene where Loni jumps into Arnold Schwartzenegger's arms is cut, but it's really worth checking out! ...and then there is the great mermaid gown scene.      BUY THE FILM! LONI ANDERSON
1960 JAZZ BOAT --  Fifties bouffant, especially in the dance scenes   Stills:  #1   #2   #3    Video ANNE AUDBREY
1952

PEGGY LEE
2014 JERSEY BOYS -- Near the end (NO WOMEN SPECIFICALLY HIGHLIGHTED)
1938 JEZEBEL-- A crinoline classic! In the 1850's, an unmarried Southern belle attends a ball wearing a scarlet dress, shocking genteel antebellum society. In the war between the crinies, the Southern gals always win hands down, right? Watch for the scene when Ms. Davis, clad in a gorgeous, beautifully laundered and starched cloud of snowy, frilly lace, goes out on the steps of the colonnaded mansion to sing. Why it was colorized, I do not know, for the red of her gown can be sensed even in B&W! -- Review by Pammie BETTE DAVIS
