Fay Wray on director William Wellman: "Wellman's reputation as 'Wild Bill' wasn't apparent on the set. There were rumors of his wild behavior, but that made him kind of an exciting personality, I think. He was almost a belligerent director. He was going to get this scene, you know, and he was like a whole rooting section himself, vital and strong." See more »
There is a Grosset and Dunlap book out on this presumably lost Paramount film with six plates which I recently rediscovered in preparation for a garage sale. The frontispiece shows close-up of Fay Wray and a young Gary Cooper. Unfortunately, the nice copy is without its original dust jacket. This book has a 1928 copyright on it and probably was intended to be a promotional title for the marketing of this film which came out while the Wings film was still circulating. Whether this film is truly a lost film, I don't know, but if it is this book with its plates will help to add to the history of this secondary film.
