The first film ever to win an Academy Award for Best Picture, Wings is the story of two men who have gone to war and the girl they both leave behind. Director Wellman makes one of his most humanistic statements as he explores the devastating results of war. Clara Bow (the popular Twenties “It” girl) shines with vitality in contrast to the rigid, staid Richard Arlen, and “Buddy” Rogers, his youthful, naïve counterpart. A cameo by Gary Cooper is portentous of his ascent to stardom. The arial battle sequences which abound throughout the film still rank among the best in motion picture history. The special home video release includes a digitally recorded score, composed and performed by Gaylord Carter at the console of the Sargent/Stark Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ in Hollywood, California.
