Unforgettable Classical Kisses

in Society

Kiss is a symbol of emotional sublimation. However, some kisses are not just the story of “the privacy of two people", but they carry symbolic value for those moments in history and alive through years. Here is a list we compiled about unforgettable kisses through up and down minutes of the life.


In the well-known movie "Gone with the Wind", first published in May 1936, a romantic novel written by Margaret Mitchell, Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh made impressive for viewers with a history-making kiss which was ever printed on an American stamp. “Gone with the wind” showed off the experiences of Scarlett O'Hara, a spoiled daughter of a rich plantation owner, who must use every means at her disposal to come out of the poverty that she finds herself in after Sherman's March to the Sea. The book was the source of the 1939 film of the same name and the title was taken from the first line of the third stanza of the poem Non Sum Qualis eram Bonae Sub Regno Cynarae by Ernest Dowson.
