Best movie kisses

Central and North Burnett Times - - READ -

Gone With The Wind: “You should be kissed, and of­ten. And by some­one who knows how,” Rhett But­ler tells Scar­lett O’Hara in what is widely con­sid­ered the most iconic screen kiss of all time. What woman wouldn’t want to hear those words? From Here To Eter­nity: Burt Lan­caster and Deb­o­rah Kerr’s sandy, wa­ter-logged em­brace has been repli­cated, and par­o­died, many times over. The sheer phys­i­cal­ity of the scene, dur­ing which their char­ac­ters pas­sion­ately kiss on the beach as waves wash over them, makes it an en­dur­ing cine­matic mo­ment. Ti­tanic: Who could for­get one of the most iconic scenes in James Cameron’s Os­car-win­ning dis­as­ter epic, when Jack and Rose first ce­mented their ro­mance while en­joy­ing the free­dom of stand­ing on the steamship’s bow. Dirty Danc­ing: You have to wait the en­tire movie for it, but when Johnny re­turns to dance with Baby at the end of this 1987 cult clas­sic and takes her into his arms, it’s im­pos­si­ble not to swoon. Ghost: Not even death could stop Patrick Swayze’s char­ac­ter Sam from com­fort­ing his griev­ing part­ner Molly (Demi Moore) in a scene that must have boosted sales in pot­tery wheels. Pretty Woman: Richard Gere and Julia Roberts made fire es­capes sexy when their char­ac­ters fi­nally kissed at the end of Garry Mar­shall’s ro­man­tic com­edy about a businessman who falls in love with a pros­ti­tute. When Harry Met Sally: This is that other mem­o­rable scene from Rob Reiner’s com­edy about two long-time friends (played by Billy Crys­tal and Meg Ryan) who fi­nally give in to their feel­ings for one an­other. The Notebook: They re­port­edly didn’t get along on set, but Rachel McA­dams and Ryan Gosling chan­nelled that tension into their char­ac­ters’ mem­o­rable meet­ing in Nicholas Sparks’ ro­man­tic drama. Spi­der-Man: Tobey Maguire may not be re­mem­bered as the best Spi­der-Man, but his up­side-down kiss in the rain with Kirsten Dunst will stand the test of time. But film­ing the kiss was a chal­lenge, with wa­ter con­stantly run­ning into Tobey’s nose. Twi­light: There isn’t a teenage girl, or many grown women for that mat­ter, who hasn’t watched Bella and Edward’s first pas­sion­ate kiss on re­peat. For­bid­den love be­tween a girl and a vam­pire, what’s not to like?
