Subject: Screen Kisses Fox News
This morning (Nov. 25, 1998, Tuesday), Fox did a segment on movie screen
kisses (which included a commercial for the segment). In both the
commercial and the segment, the first two were R and J's first kiss in
the Zeffirelli (with soundtrack) and Luhrmann (without soundtrack)
versions. Other films included Gone with the Wind, Meet Joe Black, A
Place in the Sun, From Here to Eternity, Notorious, and The Thomas Crown
Affair. the segment is another testament to the foundational status of
R and J for heterosexual romance in the U.S.
