Brokeback kiss is voted number one
A online poll of people who rent DVDs has revealed that their favourite movie kiss of all time was between two men.
Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal’s passionate kiss in Brokeback Mountain topped the online survey by DVD rental firm Lovefilm, beating classic movie moments from Gone With The Wind and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Lesbians are not left out either: the Selma Blair/Sarah Michelle Gellar encounter in Cruel Intentions came in at number five.
Lovefilm marketing manager Fliss White said: “We never expected the results to be so varied.
“Our top 10 has covered everything from sexy passionate embraces to more sinister, threatening kisses.”
There certainly were some puzzling results from the online poll.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie make the list for their kiss in Mr Mrs Smith, and The Godfather comes in at number seven.
In the case of The Godfather, it is not a passionate lip-lock that won over DVD viewers, but the famous scene where Michael Corleone kissed goodbye to his brother Fredo, whom he has decided to have killed.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s was number two in the poll, followed by the Pitt/Jolie kiss and then Gone With The Wind.
Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster’s beach kiss in From Here To Eternity came sixth, followed by Bridget Jones’s Diary
The final two places were claimed by Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst in Spider-Man and Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray in Dirty Dancing.
