Kedington Film Club presents Wings
23 November @ 7:00pm–9:00pm
1927 PG (silent movie)
Starring: Clara Bow, Charles ‘Buddy’ Rogers, Richard Arlen and the screen debut of Gary Cooper
Two young men, one rich, one middle class, who are in love with the same woman, become fighter pilots in World War I so an appropriate choice of film at this time of Remembrance.
Wings was the very first film to win an Oscar and the only silent movie to win an Oscar for Best Picture until The Artist (2011) in 2012. It was lost for decades until a copy was discovered languishing in the Cinematheque Francaise film archive in Paris, France.
The aerial and ground combat scenes are spectacular and very realistic. Although American it is sensitive to the other nations involved in the conflict.
