London:  Classic romance of iconic couple Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh of 'Gone With The Wind' has gone down the line of favourites with cine lovers and doomed romance between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet on sinking ship 'Titanic' has floated to the number one position. An extensive survey has named Leonardo and Kate as the most romantic onscreen couple of all time.

The survey of moviegoers, one of the most extensive ever undertaken, saw the actors voted ahead of Gable and Leigh from the 1939 classic, set in the backdrop of American civil war.

 Almost a quarter of all those who voted, rated the romance that plays out during the final hours on the ill fated cruise liner Titanic as the best Hollywood has ever made.

 “Titanic” which has won 11 Oscars stars Winslet who plays Rose, a high society woman while DiCaprio plays Jack, a poor artist. They fall in love during the voyage.

But there is no happy ending as Jack dies along with other 1,500 passengers when the ship sinks on its maiden journey after hitting an iceberg in the North Atlantic.

The relation between Gable and Leigh in the 'Gone with the Wind' was rated the second most romantic onscreen pairing.

Their fiery kiss against a crimson sky as they escape from a burning Atlanta has become one of cinema's most iconic images.

Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in 'Pretty Woman' grabbed the third position in the survey.
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman were placed fourth most romantic onscreen couple of Hollywood for their powerful performances in the 1942 classic 'Casablanca'.
