The December issue of Glamour Magazine has hit newsstands and inside I served as one of three judges for a piece entitled, The 6 Best Movie Kisses of All Time.
Before you read the column, I’m interested to hear what films and characters you believe should make the list… What are your favorite kisses onscreen?
One of Hollywood’s most memorable kisses took place between Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman in the 1946 film Notorious. What’s noteworthy is that it happened during the years of the Hays Code (1930-1968) when “scenes of passion” were extremely restricted and kisses were limited to seconds. To get around the regulations, director Alfred Hitchcock cleverly filmed Grant and Bergman exchanging a series of interrupted kisses as Grant answers a telephone call. So each kiss takes just moments, but the entire scene is nearly three minutes.
