Romantic classics: 'From Here to Eternity,' 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' and 'To Have and Have Not'

'From Here to Eternity'

The hot-and-heavy clinch on the beach between illicit lovers Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr as waves engulf them in the 1953 Oscar-winning drama "From Here to Eternity" still epitomizes erotic sizzle.

'Breakfast at Tiffany's'

Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly is reunited with her lover (George Peppard) and the missing cat (Orangey) — the "poor slob without a name" — in the rain-drenched, tear-inducing conclusion of 1961's romantic classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

'To Have and Have Not'

Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall fell in love making the 1944 film noir "To Have and Have Not." No wonder their love scenes, especially when she tells him how to whistle, practically burn up the screen.
