More than six decades after a sailor grabbed and kissed Edith Shain in the iconic photo taken during a World War II victory celebration in Times Square, she locked lips with yet another man in uniform. Just last weekend, the 90-year-old woman got a backstage smooch with a 25-year-old actor who plays a sailor in the show "South Pacific," according to The Daily News. In town for New York City's Veterans Day parade, the little old lady will be honored as the parade's grand marshal. Shain is one of many who've claimed that it was she whose kiss was captured on Broadway and 45th Street in 1945, but Alfred Eisenstaedt, the Life Magazine photographer who captured the moment, didn’t know either of his subjects.
