I have  great promo photo of Clark Gable kissing Joan Crawford from the forgettable 1934 romance  Chained that I just love.  Clark Gable looks like he wants to eat her up and she looks like she'd rather be beating a child with a wire hanger.

Revisiting the movie it was notable in one way.  The lighting director developed the lighting technique of using one diffuse overhead light which was very flattering to Joan Crawford's eyes and cheekbones.  A style which she insisted on in all of her subsequent films.

- Cool story Glo

Can we also turn this into a favorite onscreen kiss thread?

Of course From Here to Eternity rolling around in the surf snog and  Lady and The Tramp accidental spaghetti kiss are in the running.

Or the ending of Cinema Paradiso where the guy is watching all the compiled censored kissing scenes... so lovely.  Really appeals to me as a movie and smooch aficionado.

Leader O'Cola: misleading headline is misleading, subby


While the story itself is quite worthless, I think it could stimulate some excellent discussion.

Now, kiss me like you mean it.

IMHO Ennio Morricone's "Love Theme" playing during that segment makes it even more enjoyable to watch.

I read Leigh was disgusted because Gable had false teeth.

One thing that's standing out to a lot lately is the 'Disney Double-Kiss'. It's quite recent, first one of note being Tangled, then Wreck-It-Ralph, and now Frozen. Rather than just a simple, child-friendly, old-Disney-esque lip contact, break and smile, now they're going in soft, taking a breath, then going in hard

Might be more realistic, maybe, but it doesn't quite gel when it's Pint-sized Felix snogging 7' Calhoun (who bats for the other side anyway, so I hear)

AMonkey'sUncle: I read Leigh was disgusted because Gable had false teeth.


It wasn't so much that as a result of a bad gum infection when he was 32 he had to have most of his teeth removed and replaced by dentures. Apparently the dentures ended up causing him to suffer from halitosis.

Cruel Intentions Sarah Michelle Gellar teaches Selma Blair how to kiss.
I'd forgotten how great that movie was until I saw a bunch of clips when I watched a music video of the Placebo song a couple of days ago.

Really, Fark?

"Since the invention of the kiss, there have been five kisses rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind. The end. "

Wow. That clip is just so pretentiously French. And no obligatory furburger for its more than patient american viewers. How very pedestrian. *effete puff on cigarette*
