Chemistry on Film: “It’s Even Better When You Help”

Actress Lauren Bacall passed away this week, and so it seems like a good opportunity to post this clip from Bacall's first movie, To Have and Have Not, made when she was just nineteen years old.

This is how on-screen chemistry works (and yes, the two embarked on an affair during the course of this film that culminated in their getting married).

What are your favorite on-screen moments of chemistry?

Olivia deHavilland and Errol Flynn in The Adventures of Robin Hood. Flynn, though married, had a huge crush on her and, many years later, she admitted she had one on him as well. And it shows.

If we go way, way back--Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell, one of the first great movie couples. Their chemistry in Seventh Heaven is so great it could still capture my teenaged niece's attention when I showed her the film recently!

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie in Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Ben Browder & Claudia Black in Farscape.
