sepia kiss

Ah, romance.

This prompt made me wonder when was the first cinematic kiss. A Google search led me to this photo from an India film released in 1933:

Devika Rani in "Karma"

Yet, certainly 1933 wasn’t the first film to show a kiss. (Google isn’t always the best.) A Yahoo search led me to discover that “John C Rice kissed May Irwin in 1896, and became the first couple to be recorded kissing in the film called The Kiss.
