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 petticoats 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-ŕ-vis frou-frou

1953 THREE SAILORS AND A GIRL      Dance scene video   #2
1938 THREE SMART GIRLS GROW UP ("As the film begins we see three girls walking towards the camera. They are wearing ball gowns with tight-fitting bodices and full skirts. They are walking along the corridors and down the stairs of their mansion to join the guests of Deanna's first grown-up party. We see the film credits and hear snatches of their conversation between the film music. We also hear the rustle of their dresses, for Nan Grey, in particular, is wearing a stunning party frock with a very full skirt accentuated by pleats let in the back, and puffed sleeves tied up with little bows of ribbon. There are three parties altogether in the film, and one wedding. We see the dancers are wearing full skirts in various fabrics and at the wedding all the bridesmaids wear taffeta frocks with very short sleeves puffed up into stiff points. In one of Hollywood's favourite underwear scenes, Nan Grey is revealed in a full-skirted frilled petticoat.!")  -- Review by Janet DEANNA DURBIN
