It's in the Kiss...

What's a romantic movie without a massive dose of PDA and lips locked in a passionate kiss. Here are a few of our favourites

Gone With the Wind, 1939

"You need kissing badly," Clark Gable, as Rhett Butler, told Vivien Leigh's Scarlett O'Hara in this 1939 epic.

From Here To Eternity, 1953

This sea-soaked embrace was considered quite risqué in 1953, even though the raciest footage ended up on the cutting-room floor.

Breakfast at Tiffany's, 1961

Audiences adored this stylish film, particularly for the final scene, in which Holly (Audrey Hepburn) and Paul (George Peppard) make a rainy New York City alley seem as romantic as any pink-streaked sunset.

Twilight, 2008

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart shared a memorable kiss in the film. She was an ordinary schoolgirl, he a 109-year-old vampire Adonis. Their forbidden love made their romance so much more exciting to watch.

Romeo & Juliet, 1996

Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes updating Shakespeare's classic tragedy with a hip, modern-day Verona Beach setting for the MTV generation was pure class. Putting pin-up Leo in the role of Romeo-- a stroke of genius.

Thelma and Louise, 1991

How we cheered when downtrodden housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) got her kicks with the blessedly shirt-shy cowboy, JD (Brad Pitt).

Mr & Mrs Smith, 2005

It's not exactly unusual for actors to fall in love on set, but when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie became a couple after playing married assassins in the 2005 movie Mr and Mrs Smith, it generated headlines around the world.

Titanic, 1997

"I'm flying!" an excited Rose (Kate Winslet) exclaimed as she stood atop the prow at dusk with Jack's (Leonardo DiCaprio) arms entwined with hers. And who can blame her excitement?

Slumdog Millionaire, 2008

It was easy to see why Jamal (Dev Patel) was so hung up on his childhood friend Latika (Freida Pinto). When they finally kiss on a Mumbai train platform, the moment was exuberantly optimistic.

Spiderman, 2009

The upside-down kiss that Spiderman (Tobey Maguire) shared with Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) in this 2002 flick was breath-taking.
