This charming book celebrates the most surprising, predictable, famous, and extraordinary kisses of some of the world's most beloved movie stars. These kisses are certainly hot, but also innocent (Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland in Babes on Broadway), illicit Turner and John Garfield in The Postman Always Rings Twice), demanding (Greta Garbo in Mata Hari), desperate (Vivien Leigh and Leslie Howard in Gone With the Wind), self-satisfied (Clark Gable and Jeanette MacDonald in San Francisco), exquisitely troubled (Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer in Romeo and Juliet), seductive (Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca), committed (Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy in Woman of the Year), and promising "And they lived happily ever after" (Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard in Modern Times). This book is about love and all its ramifications. It is delicious to discover, despite Maureen O'Sullivan teaching Johnny Weissmuller in Tarzan and his Mate to say "I love you," how rarely these words are spoken when kissing. Instead, the reader finds that a kiss is never just a kiss, as Eva Marie Saint accuses Cary Grant of being a murderer in North by Northwest, or as Greta Garbo in Mata Hari demands that Ramon Navarro blow out the Virgin Mary's candle as a requirement - before the kiss. This is a book for Valentines of all ages. From young love to enduring love, from silliness to seriousness, from play to passion, here are the most surprising, delicious, and provocative kisses you have ever seen.
