Old School Kisses

What do you think when an old school movie from the 40's, 50's or 60's comes on? Cringe?
We've always loved them...well not all of us.
The gorgeous costumes, hair, accessories, sets, music, dancing and script. Love it, the innocence of them. Of course a critical eye would notice the racist and misogynistic themes, but perhaps we're just superficial.
Either way one part of them that always captures us is the kiss. There is always at least one Kiss Moment. You know the ones - those long, lingering looks, close enough to touch yet oh so restrained, the lean in, soft or demanding but always full of 'oh thank god!'.


They got us thinking about the quotes that go with movie kisses: 
“No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”
Gone With the Wind (1939) – Rhett Butler (Clark Gable)
“It's a treat to be kissed, even goodbye.”
Spawn of the North (1938) – Nicky Duval (Dorothy Lamour)
“Wanna dance or would you rather just suck face?”
On Golden Pond (1981) – Norman Thayer (Henry Fonda)

These ones in particular will probably end up making an appearance on our art wall sometime or other. Could even create His and Hers bedroom art...
