Screen Kisses: From The Kiss to One Day
Posted June 28, 2011 to photo album "Screen Kisses: From The Kiss to One Day"
The electrifying kiss between Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess) in One Day inspired us to look back at other great screen kisses.
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967)
Stanley Kramer’s liberal-hearted drama Guess Who's Coming to Dinner is filled with lots of talking about civil rights and race relations. Sidney Poitier talks to his white fiancé (played by Katharine Houghton), and her parents (played by Spencer Tracey and Katharine Hepburn) can’t stop talking about it. But when it comes to showing it, the film was very shy. The only interracial kiss in the movie takes place in the rearview mirror of a cab bringing the couple from the airport to San Francisco. Kramer, however, shot quite a few passionate kisses between Poitier and Houghton, but only one made it into the final film. As Poitier joked to a radio station about his excised kissing scene, “I suggest that your listeners hurry down to the theater and see the scene, and just…take some aspirins with them.”
