Hardboiled Kisses

I love a bit of film noir.  In fact, I’d say that the film noir aesthetic has influenced my writing in many ways.  Anyhoo, not so long ago, thanks to Angela, I watched Hitchcock’s The Birds for the first time ever.  What a fabulous movie!  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  But the kiss (there’s often a kiss in film noir, right?) just wasn’t steamy.  I’m all about the sudden, lingering, desperate kisses, or the grasp of the body and the moment of pause before mouth swoops to mouth.  So, to make up for the lack of smooching in The Birds, here’s Ingrid Bergman with Cary Grant, doing their steamy thing in Notorious, oh yes…

Also, thanks to super-talented author, Christa Faust, I watched this vid today.  It’s by Serena Bramble, posted by Ruby Tuesday, and entitled A Valentine to Film Noir.  We at GDP love it!

And if you’re looking for more steamy kisses — accompanied, I might add, by some sensational sex — keep your eye out for Zoe More’s Hunger, coming soon from GDP.

    (It’s spelled “Cary” Grant…)

    I’ve always thought one of the best on-screen kisses ever was James Spader & Elias Koteas in Crash (1996). Check out the link here, starting at 6:20 —

    You must have been thinking of some other fabulous movie star named Carrie. 😉

    The “Carries’ of this world are awesome, it has to be said. 🙂 I’ve changed Carrie to Cary in the post, thanks to you!
