Cinematic Kisstory


Responding to a piece by BrainPickings that discused the probable first kiss in cinema (1896!), Open Culture posted an item in January 2012 about what seems to have been the first same sex kiss in cinema, or at least one of the earliest known ones.


It occurred in the 1927 film Wings, the only silent film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Buddy Rogers and Richard Arlen star in the film, playing two combat pilots who vie for the affection of the same woman, played by Clara Bow.


That is the storyline, but neither, as writer Kevin Sessums apparently wrote, "shows as much love for her … as they do for each other."

If you know when the first loving (cinematic) kiss between two women happened, please let us know.
