Here are five films that are sexier, steamier than anything 50 Shades of Grey will expose. Due to the Production Code’s innate rules Hollywood’s films of yesteryear had to find ways to express sexually within rules that would not allow nudity, long kisses or even married couples in bed together. Here are five films from the heyday of Hollywood that are sexier than 50 Shades of Grey.
Alfred Hitchcock got around the production code’s rule that kisses could not last longer than three seconds by having Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman nuzzle and whisper sweet nothin’s in between those three second kisses. The scene went on for more than two hot sensuous minutes.
From Here to Eternity
Probably the most erotic beach scene ever filmed. Burt Landcaster and Deborah Kerr are involed in an adulterous affair. They are embracing on the beach as the waves coming crashing over them. As the waves draw back toward the ocean, their gleaming wet bodies shine as they continue to embrace.
The Postman Always Rings Twice
Another steamy illicit affair on the beach with murder thrown in for good measure. You can’t blame John Garfield for his carnal desires toward Lana Turner. Dressed in virginal white, she is anything but! Stuck with an older husband, working at a roadside diner in the middle of nowhere. Garfield and Turner’s love scenes burn up the screen.
It Happened One Night
Before Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart was never thought of as a romantic lead. The film drips with sexual steam between the actor and Bergman. While Casablanca is one of the most romantic of movies, it does have a more unsavory side with characters like Renault (Claude Rains) who work with the Nazi’s selling Visas for sexual favors.
