That would be Captain Kirk and the Radio operator, I cannot spell her name; the first movie was James Brown and Rachael Welch. Why is it allways a black man with a white woman? The only example of a white man with a black woman is the couple on the Jeffersons, some realitives of George or Wheezy. Dosen't this make Hollywood the most raceist city in America?

Actually, Shatner and Nichelle did'nt really kiss. The upper ups were agast at the potential national reaction. They just pretended - no mouths touched. It was a back of the head shot.
