Petticoats and Crinolines in Films
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

ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE - TVS
Fifties Bouffant, especially as shown in above vidclip - girl on a swing, petticoats aflyin'
|2001||THE OTHER SIDE OF HEAVEN (Set in the early Fifties, the scene is a dance. Actual filming was done in New Zealand, using members of a swing dance club there. Couple of very nice pettis to be seen. Miss. Hathaway, alas, is more modest than the extras. Something that she's wearing shows, but I'm at a loss to characterize it.) -- Review by Lisa Stills||ANNE HATHAWAY|
|1999||THE OTHER SISTER (Several flurries of bride's maid's petticoats at the end!!)||JULIETTE LEWIS|
|1972||OUR MISS FRED (Danny LaRue is Britain's foremost female impersonators. It is WWII and [s]he is playing the female; the end of the show and she is mistaken for a real woman and therefore let free by the Germans. In order to escape back to England and not be shot as a spy, (he) must carry on the charade. His journey necessitates many disguises, including a French maid.. At one point (s)he is trapped into appearing in a fashion show, with many changes of frocks. Many of the clothes (s)he wears would appeal to petticoat fans. You don't really get to see the frilly pettis under his maid's outfit, but at one point he is trying to change out of a skirt suit and we see that (s)he is being very authentic in his disguise - he is wearing a lacy white slip. What's the betting he is also wearing the prettiest panties [s]he can find as well?) --Review by Paulina Barbie-- Click here for still-clips||DANNY LA RUE|
