Doris Day and Louis Jourdan Performing the Longest kiss (1956).
Original Captions: Doris Day and Louis Jourdan are shown in what is termed the longest and most expensive kiss in motion picture history. The embrace in the forth-coming MGM picture "Julie", cost $125,000 to film and was scheduled to last on the screen for 53 seconds. Some state censors have ruled that a 53-second kiss is too suggestive and that at least 40 seconds of it must go. The studio has appealed the decision, arguing the kiss already cost nearly $2,500 a second and is dramatically necessary to the film.
