Sexual Chemistry

So the chemistry achievements of the commenters range from total failure to a magnificent CSE grade 3. I suspect a few of you may have been a tad modest.

But I wonder how you'd score on Sexual Chemistry?

Vivien and Gerald had it in buckets (see above).
Probably this Gerald as well.

If there was nothing going on in the test tube my students wrote NVR for their observation. It means No Visible Reaction.

The exquisite Audrey Hepburn had NVR with Whatsisname in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'. I watched it on DVD last week.

So who has sexual chemistry?

Perhaps these Synchronised smokers:

He probably only sees her for the photo op these days:

Richard Burton and Liz without a doubt.

But what about Liz and this other thin friend?


But undoubtedly the most Effervescent, Exothermic, Explosive couple ever on the large or the small screen had to be Mike and Alma:

Dontcha still miss them?

Thought these blokes would have it with sheep, not zebras ... I guess the correct term is "Balztanz". Have a fine Sunday.

Wot no Ken & Deirdre? I know Ken had no chemistry whatsoever but Deirdre had enough for the whole street...!

I believe I have it in bucketfulls.

Sadly no-one else suffers from this delusion.

I haven't watched Corrie since Alma split up with Len Fairclough to spite Ena Sharples.

I bet if you put Dave and Vicus together in the same room that something would smoulder. . .

Well that partnership of Mick and Bette seems to have passed me by.

She was so generous with it. Did she ever get around to Roy Cropper?


They just haven't told you.

So you won't have heard that Gail was the love child of Albert Tatlock and Hilda Ogden.


Yeah - good call.

He doesn't know when to stop the punishment

Yes. Male brains trying to outdo each other.

Mike & Alma: NVR as I have no idea who they are.

Be my valentine then! [mwah!]

I'd like to see the Nick Tilsleys get it on (the last two). They are made for each other.

MJ won't know about the new one yet.

Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in To Have and Have Not.

mj will tell you about Mike and Alma.
I was going to be your Valentine but I see you asked Roses as well.
Too fickle.

Any chance of a new Gail?

Much better than Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

That should be very effervescent!!

Blogger nwtrunner said...

Kaz - yes, Mike and Alma had sexual chemistry, but not on the lines of Stan and Hilda Ogden, eh?!

Watching Corrie this morning and wishing that Mike, Alma, Stan, and Hilda were on :-)

6:30 pm  
Blogger Tim said...

Of course, all those people were acting. I remember reading Julie's description somewhere of how that scene in Don't Look Now got made - and Bacall had never met Bogie before and was p'ing herself with nerves.
So, faking it seems to work.

6:55 pm  
Blogger Z said...

They weren't faking it though, Tim - bear in mind that after making that film, Bogart left his wife and subsequently married Bacall. She was indeed very nervous - I didn't spot the damp patches, but can see how stiffly she holds her head to one side to disguise her shaking. They named their children after their characters in the film, if I remember rightly, because that's where they fell in love.

OK, I'm going to regret showing my age and taste, youngsters have surely forgotten Emily and Mr. Swindley, behind the counter in his dark little emporium.

And what's the zebra photo about?

I'm feeling rather left out now... XL has asked Roses and you to be his valentine... and MJ too, but not me...

*wanders off pouting*

Poor David I think Liz looks like she is holding him up.
For sexual chemistry, for me it has to be Heathcliff and Kathy. The best lovers are always fictional.

9:46 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Amazing - there you are on top of the earth and you watch Corrie.
I agree - it's a bit rubbish these days.

Faking it?
I bet you speak from experience.

I don't think I've seen the film all the way through.
I must track it down and look for the signs.

I remember them better than the characters from last night - sheer class........and Emily is still there.

I think it was a fashion accessory.

The man is a cad and a bounder.
Not worth a pout!

I thought it was the other way round - she is at an alarming angle.
Good point re the fictional lovers. They never got that pair right on screen.

I'm still sobbing into my tissues about XL.

Chemistry? Clarice and Hannibal in Silence of the Lambs.

8:53 am  
Blogger Istvanski said...

Are you suggesting that Elton & Furnish have some kind of sexual chemistry with zebras?
All this adult talk is confusing me. I was flummoxed by MJ's glory hole post, what was all that about? C'mon Kaz, have a heart, I'm struggling with my CSE re-takes.

9:17 am  
Blogger dinahmow said...

Emily still there? Blimey! She's had more horizontal action than the rest put together. In a very genteel way. Of course.
And when I was off-comments I was going to be pithy about Dopey Derek not being "a pudding man." That is a running joke in this house. (For private reasons.)

And I have a personal tale about Annie Walker.

Blogger MJ said...

What on earth is Geoff on about?

Anyway, one of my houseboys stopped watching Corrie the day Alma died.

As for XL, yes I did notice he's been all over BlogsVille wooing the womenfolk. Shameless.

12:31 pm  
Blogger Kerrie said...

I know I once saw Cliff Richard as Heathcliff, it wasn't pretty.

2:39 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

We'll forgive him eventually.
'Clarice and Hannibal' - I don't think I want to go there.

Good luck with the retakes - Give us a call if you need help.

I'd forgotten Dopey Derek but not Leonard Swindley.
Wiki tells Derek was killed off in 1997.

I was Alma.
I had the hair for it.

xl has upset Ponita who felt excluded.

Too much information daahling.

Hmmm, well I haven't watched Corrie for a very long time but I'm sure that Mike and Alma are still doing just fine....I hope you're not going to suggest otherwise?

6:25 pm  
Blogger SSS said...

I haven't seen Corrie for donkeys years. Mike is indeed a sex god. Who could forget his blistering affair with Deidre Barlow and his pained little face when she told him she was staying with Ken? Poor Uncle Albert was so upset by it all.

8:36 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Well strictly speaking they are both dead.
But I have it on good authority that Amanda Barrie and Johnny Briggs are OK.

I wish the scriptwriters had killed off Ken instead.

I think you'll find it was just one of Ken's dreams. Or maybe two.

(I know a scriptwriter)

Clark Gable and Carole Lombard - they even got married and he was devastated by her death in a plane crash. Not least as he had a male blow up doll in their bed to surprise her with when she got back (they were constantly playing sexy pranks on one another).

zIggI X 3:
House I know
Zebedee and Florence I know
Otherwise you're making me feel like Dave. Is it because I only have Freeview channels? Should I get more?

What - with each other or with Weed?

Sounds lovely to me - will you save it or have you eaten it?


How on earth do you know these things?
I often fancy catching up on these old movies but rarely get round to it.
