Sexiest Scenes in Film History: Teacher's Pet (1957)

I think the picture and its caption are self-explanatory don't you think? What could have turned out to be a boring movie with a young Doris Day still trying to find her stride as a romantic lead and an aging Clark Gable a little incredible as her suitor, was saved by this one great frame!


  1. A) I LOVE your new header!!

    and B) What a new GREAT series! (later, looking through your archives, I see it's not so new -- what great stuff!) 'Sexiest scenes in film history'...why didn't I think of that? :)

    I had eventually planned to start a 'best kisses in film history' series, but pictures of people actually kissing are kinda hard to come by (though I guess pictures aren't always necessary...).

    As for Teacher's Pet: I've seen part of it...I remember Doris Day walking past him in a nightclub, and I think he checked out her backside then, too. :)

  2. Thanks Ginger! I wanted something summer-y.

    My site gets the most traffic from the Sexiest Scenes in Film History series although I really haven't been doing much with it lately. I definitely want to revive it. I love your idea for best kisses, but I understand the picture-dilemna. I get a lot of mine from freeze-framing on my laptop.

    Yes, there is a LOT of derriere-oggling in Teacher's Pet. A LOT. Even I was shocked.

  3. Haven't seen that one, but the pic and caption do say a lot. Still, my vote for sexiest ever would be Bacall getting a light (and cigarette) from Bogart in "To Have and Have Not."

  4. Yoga - Well this isn't the Sexiest of all scenes. It's just part of my collection of many sexy scenes in film history. It's a series I have going.

    I agree about the To Have and Have Not scene. That's quite smoldering. My all-time favorite one is Norma Shearer's "c'mon put em around me" line in A Free Soul.


Leave me a comment! If it is a long one, make sure you save a draft of it elsewhere just in case Google gobbles it up and spits it out.
