Lovefilm did a survey and named their top ten sexiest moments in film ( Number One was the spanking scene in Secretary. (Which was pretty good I have to admit.) I decided to list some of my favorites. Also decided to limit the list to films I own on DVD. That’s why Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in the surf in From Here to Eternity and Ursula Andress walking out of the surf in Doctor No aren’t on the list. (If I did, they would be.) By the way, sometimes romantic is sexy, sometimes erotic is sexy and sometimes it’s just plain sexy. Boy, this is a mixed bag.

Anyway, here we go (in alphabetical order):

Casablanca – the flashback, in Paris, when Bogie kisses Bergman. “We’ll always have Paris.”

Entrapment – Catherine Zeta-Jones, waking, nude, to discover Sean Connery sitting in her dark hotel room.

Friendly Persuasion – Phyllis Love chasing Mark Richman down the road as he’s riding off to join his Civil War command. She stumbles and falls; he finally hears her crying out his name.

The Quiet Man – In the empty cottage, wind blowing, John Wayne pulling Maureen O’Hara into his embrace.

Pretty Woman – Julia Roberts in the red evening gown.

Rear Window – James Stewart waking to Grace Kelly kissing him.

Rob Roy
– Liam Neeson saying to Jessica Lange – “Do you know how fine you are to me, Mary MacGregor?”

Some Like It Hot – Marilyn walking along the train platform past, in drag, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis. Lemmon: “Will you look at that! Look how she moves! It's like Jell-O on springs. Must have some sort of built-in motor or something. I tell you, it's a whole different sex!”

– Sean Connery taking Molly Peters into the steam room.

Working Girl – Melanie Griffith vacuuming her boss’s apartment in only panties and high heels.

This is such hard work on some days.

The two I that immediately come to mind (off the top of my head)

are the long kiss between Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant in "Notorious"

and in "Robin and Marion" when Sean Connery as Robin Hood says to Audrey Hepburn who is Marion,

"You are so beautiful..." as she lolls under a tree.

Later, there's a great kiss under that same tree.

I love that they're both older in this movie.
