Wings Criterion Blu-ray Review

29 February 2012 1:00 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It is a sad fact of film history that, for much of its existence, the movie studios did not appreciate the value of their creations as archive-worthy artistic endeavors---let alone public interest in props, costumes and other tools of the trade (which only truly came to the forefront during the famous 1970 MGM auction).  As such, many---and, in the case of silent films, the majority---movies have been lost for good.  Every now and then, one such lost work resurfaces, but those that do are fewer than not.  It is almost inconceivable to us now that, of all movies, the very first Oscar winner for Best Picture (then "Best Picture, Production"), William A. Wellman’s Wings, could at one time have been lost, but such was indeed the case.  Fortunately for future cinephile generations, Wings is also among the few lost films that have been found.  Hit the jump for our review of the Blu-ray. »

Wings Blu-ray Review

10 February 2012 11:33 AM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

It seems quite serendipitous that just as 2011's ode to the silent film era, The Artist, is receiving all sorts of praise and accolades that Paramount should release its 1927 silent masterpiece, Wings, for the first time on Blu-ray.

Directed by "Wild Bill" Wellman, Wings tells the story of Jack Powell (Charles Rogers) and David Armstrong (Richard Arlen), small town lads who both have their eye on the same lady; Sylvia Lewis (Jobyna Ralston). Jack and David are both vying for the affections of Ms. Lewis, although she solely has her sights set on David. Despite her lack of reciprocation, Jack remains persistent in his pursuit, making him also blind to his lovely neighbor Mary (Clara Bow) practically throwing herself at him at every turn.

It's not long before the boys get sent off to war, both becoming aviators. What began as a romantic tale quickly becomes one of the most »
