My first exposure to leather-wearing was seeing programmes and films on my tv screen. I can remember seeing Elvis in his leather jumpsuit in concert and I had to watch and re-watch so many times I wore the video out.
In a world of streaming there is perhaps little reason to own these iconic, leather filled shows and movies on disc, and yet I have a treasured collection and always will. Some of my favorite leather shows aren’t available on stream so DVD is the only way to go.
Here are some of my favourites…..
I had only seen the early Diana Rigg episodes, until the 1980s when Channel 4 started showing the early Honor Blackman episodes where she wore full leather in virtually every episode. Such a leather icon for me! Series 2 & 3 featured the leather-clad Honor and just series 4 of the Diana Rigg episodes featured her in leather. In later episodes, although filmed in colour she didn’t wear leather (apart from 1 episode) and there was very little leather in all the other shows. However, the series was very enjoyable especially the Diana Rigg season 4 and 5 so maybe buy the complete set on DVD. The movie looked promising with Uma Thurman looking great in a leather catsuit but sadly the film wasn’t great and not much leather in the final cut.
Girl On A Motorcycle
Marianne Faithfull riding around in a sexy leather catsuit for the majority of the film is a beautiful thing to watch. I’m not sure there is much of a story but who cares when you can enjoy this fine sight
