AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN (1982)
In the final moments of the film, Zack Mayo played by Richard Gere walks through the paper factory where Paula Pokrifki, played by Debra Winger worked. He kisses her over and over and picks her up and carriers her out of the factory.
It was said that the co-stars did not get along off the set. In fact, it was said that Richard Gere did the movie just for the money. However, when you see the two of them kissing, you never would have suspected this.
LADY AND A TRAMP (1955)
This is the only animation in the group, but has been rated the most cherished in pop culture. This kiss is known as the shared spaghetti kiss because cocker spaniel Lady and mongrel Tramp go on a date to an outdoor Italian restaurant. While they are being serenaded by a waiter, they begin chewing on opposite ends of a strand of spaghetti and were startled to meet in the middle where they do the obvious thing. They kiss. (They got away with it, but don't you and your date try it in a restaurant).
FROM HERE TO ETERNITY (1953)
This movie was at first considered unfilmable because the beach scene was considered too racy, The kiss is known as the illicit beach kiss. It was a forbidden one between Army Sergeant Milton Warden played by Burt Lancaster and the adulterous Army Captain's wife Karen Holmes played by Deborah Kerr.
The Hawaiian waves cover them on a summer night on a deserted sandy beach. Karen breathlessly speaks saying, "I never knew it could be like this. Nobody ever kissed me the way you do."
That beach in Hawaii is now named Eternity Beach after that kissing scene.
GONE WITH THE WIND (1939)
Clark Gable who played Rogue Rhett Butler and Vivien Leight who played Scarlett O'Hara embraced and kissed a number of times in this film, but it was what is known as the "conjugal rape" scene that is remembered mostly. Rhett Butler tells Scarlet, "Kiss me, Scarlett, this is what you were meant for."
It is reported that Vivien Leigh said Clark Gable had lousy breath. However, we wouldn't have suspected it because it was a steamy kiss with sexual tension and passion at a time when that was unheard of in films back in 1939.
