Let me just tuck this away...
Classic Kissing With A Cigarette In Your Mouth, Circa 1948

This is a short clip from The Pirate, released in 1948, of a man kissing a woman after flipping the cigarette he’s smoking back into his mouth, then flipping it back out after the kiss to cover her face in a cloud of smoke. Or maybe he’s just blowing her a shotgun. And they say chivalry is dead!

Thanks to my dad, who agrees they sure don’t make ’em like they used to. You know, because they make them better now, just to be clear.
