'Breakfast At Tiffany's' voted best movie kiss

Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard's rain-soaked kiss in Breakfast At Tiffany's has been voted the greatest movie smooch of all time. Die-hard romantics will be delighted that the 1961 classic topped a poll for the most memorable silver screen embrace.

In second place was Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore's tear-jerking kiss in the film Ghost, while another cinema classic, Gone With The Wind, took third. It seems that Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh's clinch in the 1939 epic is forever etched in the memories of movie fans.

But it's not just the golden oldies who can manage an unforgettable kiss, because Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst came home in fourth, thanks to their puckering up in Spider-Man, and Julia Roberts and Richard Gere were fifth, for Pretty Woman.

Other top-ten smoochers included Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca along with Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly in Singin' In The Rain. And the inimitable Colin Firth took his place alongside the greats by winning eighth position, with a little help from Renee Zellweger in Bridget Jones' Diary.

There was another British heart-throb at number nine, as Jude Law and Nicole Kidman got up close and personal in Cold Mountain, while Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair rounded out the top ten for their girls-only canoodling in Cruel Intentions. The list was compiled by video rental company Blockbuster, after it polled over 4,000 movie fans for their favourite ever silver screen kiss.
