Notorious Kiss

By Sheril Kirshenbaum | April 25, 2010 7:51 am

One of Hollywood’s most memorable kisses took place between Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman in the 1946 film Notorious. What’s noteworthy is that it happened during the years of the Hays Code (1930-1968) when “scenes of passion” were extremely restricted and kisses were limited to seconds. To get around the regulations, director Alfred Hitchcock cleverly filmed Grant and Bergman exchanging a series of interrupted kisses as Grant answers a telephone call. So each kiss takes just moments, but the entire scene is nearly three minutes.
