Hoffman, Alvin Rakoff, UK, 1970

Sinead Cusack wears a 70s rubberized trenchcoat to protect her chastity from Peter Sellers. "Does your fiancé like you to wear rubber raincoats to bed"? Sellers asks in frustration.. (David)

The ultimate Gangster movie - now available on DVD. (LE)

The Walking Stick, Eric Till, UK, 1970 Samantha Eggar wears a trenchcoat, sixties style, playing opposite David Hemmings. Mixed reviews on IMDB, but some highly enthusiastic. Eggar I think always polarises her audience. Among those whom her electricity shorts around are John Fowles, writing recently about making The Collector (1965, William Wyler) with her - an interesting film in spite of hugely disappointing rainwear. (H)
Brewster McCloud, Robert Altman, US, 1970

During a funeral burial scene it starts to rain and everyone dons different coloured plastic raincoats. (Rainy Brian; thanks for pics to MacRain)

Deep End, Jerzy Skolimoski, US and W.Germany, 1970 The actress in the film "Deep End" is Jane Asher, former girlfriend of Paul McCartney. She wears the yellow PVC maxi double breated stud-fastened raincoat during almost every outdoor scene, of which there are quite a few. (Chris)

Lynne Frederick as MaryNo Blade of Grass, Cornel Wilde, UK, 1970 Lynne Frederick wears a calf-length blue Gangster mack for nearly the whole film and in some filthy weather. Her father and mother wear shortie riding macks for the whole film and there are at least ten sightings of women wearing double textured macks during the rain sodden film. (Dannimac)
WUSA, Stuart Rosenberg,US, 1970
Stars Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, and others... In one scene, Cloris Leachman, walking with crutches, heads out into the rain, putting on a concertina-style rain hat... (I don't think this movie has been shown since the late '70's, I remember seeing it while I was in High School). (Larbud)
Solo, Jean-Pierre Mocky, France and Belgium,1970 In this enigmatic film noir ending the sixties, Anne Deleuze is a leftist member of a terrorist organisation who want to commit a bomb attack in a bourgeois party. She is recued by a gangster, who is the brother of Anne Deleuze' character's friend. Anne Deleuze wears a magnificent red shiny pvc raincoat typical of that period. (Cire Noir)
Rider on the Rain, Rene Clement, France and US, 1970 Stars Charles Bronson and Marlene Jobert, A French Housewife, played by Jobert, kills a sex maniac who raped her, not knowing she's being pursued by a mysterious American, played by Bronson, in several scenes you see Jobert's character sporting a medium length white raincoat, fashionable at the time, sometimes accompanied by a matching rainhat! (LH)

Samanthe Egar wears a Burberry trenchcoat for a brief hospital scene. (André)


double-texture girl's macL'Uccello dalle piume di cristallo,, Dario Argento, Italy and West Germany, 1970

aka The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

Heroine wears a beige double-texture mac for many scenes including laying on the floor with hands bound behind. Villainess wear a black pvc coat for many shots but rather dark so not clear. (Dannimac)

Brotherly Love, J Lee Thompson, US, 1970

Features Susannah York occasionally wearing a Valstar Gangster mackintosh (off-white rubberised double-textured cotton). It is a lovely white, mini-length version. She looks absolutely superb in it. (Pete D)

Dannimac comments: In the opening ten minutes Susannah York wears a mac of the same raglan sleeve style - yoked front and back - as the one worn in Hoffman, but off-white,. In the end five minutes she wears a short riding mack.



Die Bettwurst, Rosa von Praunheim, Germany, 1971






Wat Zien Ik, Paul Verhoven, Netherlands, 1971

aka Diary of a Hooker

In the opening scenes the lady concerned wear a shiny cornflowered coloured shiny PVC raincoat. (Rainy Brian, Kingler)

gangster macLittle Murders, Alan Arkin, US, 1971 An authentic red Gangster in a cameo role. (H, thanks to Pete)
Percy, Ralph Thomas, UK, 1971 Early scenes in the film show a very brief moment of a woman in a brown PVC coat and a longer scene with a woman in a snakeskin PVC mac in the antique shop. (Gary B)
Franz, Jacues Brel, Belgium and France, 1971
This the first film from Jacues Brel as a director. The man who became a legend in his own time and a monument of the French "chanson" plays here the part of an employee of the state in a "rest house" in a Belgian seaside town. The character is a dreamer who falls in love with another "pensionnare", Léonnie, performed by the French singer and composer Barbara the so called "dame en noir". She wears here a long shiny black trench coat ciré noir. Danielle Evenou who also appears wears the kind of trench coat with the early 70's look - just to my taste. (André)
Max et les Ferrailleurs, Claude Sautet, France, 1971

aka Il Commissario Pelissier (Thanks Milo)

Romy Schneider is a prostitute. Several times during the film she wears a shiny, black raincoat with a belt. You see her put it on, you see her take it off and you see her walk in the dark streets. A fantastic film for all "shiny, black raincoat lovers". (MacRain)

Milo adds: Of interest to smoking fetishists as well: She (Lily and Romy) smokes Kools in several scenes, though her inhales appear rather shallow for a woman noted for being a real-life heavy smoker. There is a long-lasting thin nasal exhale and a nice scene towards the end when she screws up her face as her last drag hits her harder than she had expected. (The film is about a police officer who sets up a bank robbery to apprehend would-be thieves.)

Pics thanks to André.

Klute, Alan J. Pakula, US, 1971

Jane Fonda wears the trenchcoat (Dannimac)
Psychomania, Don Sharp, UK, 1971 It's a movie about a motorcycle gang, not a great movie when you ask me. But Jane is always dressed in a red pvc coat and that is a very nice sight I can tell you. (Sid P)

They are thinking of remaking this film - but will it still have the 1970s raincoats? (Bob)

The Mephisto Waltz, Paul Wendkos, US, 1971

Jacqueline Bisset wears a white Burberry-style trenchcoat (as journalists thankfully do) for key action in this Black Arts romp. Huge lapels, teasingly sharp angles on the yoke to the rear, tightly tied belt - but a slim, straight profile, a thing of the early 70s. (HB)

Faustine et le bel Ete, Nina Companez, La France, 1971 In Faustine et le bel Ete (which also shows Isabelle Adjani in her debut), Muriel Catala goes out in the rainy night with a shiny pvc white raincoat with compatible rainhat and rubber shiny white boots. She is really beautiful and would move any raincoat lover. The film is a sort of chronicle about early loves in the country. (Cire Noir)
Mach Alles Mit, Kurt Nachman, Germany, 1971 Marion Forster wears a black plastic mac with a tiger stripe pattern - only.
Puppet on a chain, Geoffrey Reeve, UK, 1971

Carry on Abroad, Gerald Thomas, UK, 1972 When a long thunderstorm interrupts their sunbathing most of the cast don plastic macs and head off on a coach trip, wearing them on their return as well. Gail Grainger (standing in for Valeria Leon) as Miss Plunkett is very impressive as she slides off her wafer thin pale blue transparent mac almost effortlessly after she gets on the coach.) (Rainy Brian)
The Ragman's Daughter, Harold Becker, UK, 1972

Victoria Tennant carries round with her (and sometimes wears) a double-textured rubberised cotton raincoat, fashionable in the period - a white, mini-length, Valstar Gangster. Like the one worn by Sinead Cusack in Hoffman. (David, Pete D)

Dannimac adds:

Actually Victoria Tennant doesn't carry the mac in any scene. though she wears it for most of her scenes - including climbing out of windows, down and up ladders, falling on the floor and snuggling with her boyfriend. I think her white mac is meant to give her a virginial appearance in the hands of her corrupting boyfriend.

plastic macCesar et Rosalie, Claude Sautet, France, 1972

In that film by Claude Sautet following his Max et les Ferrailleurs . Romy Schneider being unforgettable in the former film as Lilly in her long black shiny PVC raincoat, here she is seen on the beach wearing a lovely shiny yellow raincoat. The last interesting film of Claude Sautet as well. (Cire Noir)

Anamika,Raghunath Jhalani, India, 1973

Aka Girl without a name

It’s very unusual to see rainwear in a Hindu movie even when it’s raining, but in this film we see a dancer wearing a fine pink raincoat which glistens in the rain. But our enjoyment is short lived and it soon comes off even though it’s still raining! Note: In this film the director is just referred to s R Jhalani. (Rainy Brian, Kingler)

They plan to kill Auriole, and finally succeed. Stephane (Claude Chabrol's wife) wears a trench coat (a Burberry I think), and there is a great scene when she goes into a museum and Picoli slips his hands under her raincoat to caress her legs. (André)
Projection Privee, François Leterrier, France, 1973 Jane Birkin wears a shiny red raincoat shaped in quite a common way than (but very exciting). (Cire Noir)
riding macThe Mackintosh Man, John Huston, UK, 1973

Features Dominique Sanda in a white trenchcoat, a riding mac-style jacket, and a grey trenchcoat. Highly recommended. (Huw)

Maybe the second trenchcoat is beige? - or actually maybe the second is grey and the THIRD is beige - ? (LE)

I think there are only two - but the second one is definitely beige. I think it is the lighting that makes it look slightly different in the Maltese exterior shots. Beige is a funny colour - it's a mixture off grey, buff and a hint of pink. (Dave D)

Beige (LE)

Comment réussir dans la vie quand on est con et
Michel Audiard, France, 1973
Quite a heavy french comedy saved by a strip tease of Jane Birkin wearing a delightful maxi black shiny pvc raincoat. (Cire Noir)
La gifle, Claude Pinoteau, France and Italy, 1974

Impossible for a film about teenagers from those early years not to wear a pvc raincoat - cire in french for those particular kind -, they were everywhere to our great pleasure. So Isabelle Ajani in her first big part is wearing a zipped blue one. We even learn that she has another one which is yellow. In one scene she goes to bed with the mackintosh and her boyfriend ask : "do you go to bed with your raincoat ?" and they fight as he is trying to get it off her. We can wonder why ? (Cire Noir)

If a viewer watches the rest of the film after the bedroom scene they will discover a white double-texture trench mac with cape, gun flaps and tightly belted. This mac is worn for much of the second half of the film. Its also good to see Robert Hardy in the film, pity he left his riding mac in the All Creatures Great and Small studio. (Dannimac)

This was Hitchcock's last movie. A complicated plot involves fake medium Blanche (Barbara Harris) and her taxi-driver partner Lumley (Bruce Dern) with Adamson (William Devane) and his accomplice Fran (Karen Black) who are seriously into kidnapping. When we first see Fran she is wearing a blonde wig and a black trenchcoat. Sadly, we don't get to see it too well. Later in the film (bewigged again) she dons a classic stone-coloured trenchcoat. This time we get a good look. (Dave D)
