WINGS (1927) from john rose on Vimeo.

 

 WWI epic and winner of the first Academy Award. Paramount took a $2 miilion chance on young director and WWI ace William ( Wild Bill) Wellman, which became a box office hit. Clara Bow was top billed, even though she appears for a limited time. Gary Coopers one scene cameo led to greater things.
