When he takes that one step closer, and you think perhaps for a split second he is going to show her mercy, but doesn't... it makes my breath catch.
She is having no part of his polite goodbye kiss. His smile afterward is priceless and makes me smile right along with him.
Neither one can shoot the other, and when he slaps her gun out of the way to kiss her yep, it make me quiver. 'Course I also like how she slaps back for the hell of it after they 'make up'.
We've all seen this scene in ET, but if you've not scene the orginal movie, it is well worth the watch. Excellent writing and who can help but be a fan of any woman brave enough to slap John Wayne.
I love the passion with which he grabs her while they are kissing, as if he could not help himself. Makes me sigh.
