We had some very good guesses. Our kissing couples are:
A: An aggressive Jane Wyman and a totally surprised Leon Ames in “Let’s Do it Again” (1953), which we discussed here.
B: Alexis Smith has been trying to get Franchot Tone to notice her in “Here Comes the Groom” (1952), discussed here. She finally succeeds.
C: One of my favorite movie kisses. Mary Wickes shows her approval of Bing Crosby in “White Christmas” (1954).
D: Richard Barthlemess gives one of the most tender, sweet screen kisses to faithful friend Aline MacMahon in “Heroes for Sale” (1933), discussed here.
E: Dan Dailey kisses Cyd Charisse for luck in “Meet Me in Las Vegas” (1956).
F: Jane Russell and Victor Mature in a flashback of better days in “Las Vegas Story” (1952).
G: Lovely Lillian Gish and dashing Conrad Nagel in “One Romantic Night” or “The Swan” (1930),which we discussed here.
Come back Thursday for the CMBA Fabulous Films of the 1940s Blogathon and “Resisting Enemy Interrogation” (1944).
My twin brother John and I just published a children's picture book. Bob the Bear Likes to Run is the story of a bear named Bob who likes to run.
Picture book, pre-K. Bob the Bear loves to run, but when his friend enters him in a race, Bob faces a bewildering world of competition. When he trips on his shoelace and falls, he is more worried about disappointing his friend than losing the race. Both friends learn in this warm and gentle story that winning isn’t everything and there’s always a next time to try again.
