Ryan lifts Rachel into the air and fervently kisses her amidst the storm that surrounds them, very sexy indeed.
- "Australia" (Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman) – This is another rain kissing scene—notice a pattern? The leading characters go through a lot together and then come out on the upside. They are happy, they are attracted to one another and then the long awaited rains come, amidst the rain and the celebrating the characters come together in a passionate kiss that quickly makes its way to the bedroom.
- "From Here to Eternity" (Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr) – Images of this kiss are recognized around the globe and far better known than the movie itself. The two main characters spend a day at the beach and lying in the sand, kiss deeply while the ocean waves move over them at will.
- "North and South" (Daniela Denby-Ash and Richard Armitage) – North and South is the tale of a middle class southerner who is forced to move to the northern town of Milton in England.
