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

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

NEVER STEAL ANYTHING SMALL  In James Cagney's last musical comedy, he is intrigued by pretty Ms. Jones, who wears a very full dress with white petticoats during a television commercial sequence. She dances and jumps around, showing off the pretty undergarments. Review by Rhonda Risque    YouTube clip

Ms. Jones in a dance number for a soap commercial. She wears the most delectable full dress and we get to see a LOT of her petticoats as she is twirled and lifted around! A MUST!

1963 A NEW KIND OF LOVE (Token bouffant display) JOANNE WOODWARD
1940 NEW MOON (Because this film was crucified by the critics, the publicity department need to build it up. So what did they do? A press release at the time reads that Ms. McDonald will have sixteen changes in all, a little matter that involves eighty petticoats, or an average of five petticoats to a costume. Her most elaborate gown....tips the scales at thirty-five pounds.' Make no mistake, this film speaks to serious pettis! It is surely a confirmation of the overwhelming wondrousness of petticoats that they can make you wish you were Nelson Eddy!) Review by Pammie JEANETTE MacDONALD

NORTH BY NORTHWEST-- Miss Saint in one of her famous dresses from the movie
(Handsome Cary Grant pursues lovely Miss Saint in this Alfred Hitchcock spy thriller that features the famous cliff- hanger on Mount Rushmore. The Technicolor and VistaVision spectacular (Hitchcock's longest film) also provided famed designer Edith Head opportunities to design some beautiful clothes for Ms. Saint, including a very memorable red and black cocktail dress with petticoats.)
