Trivia

Harold Russell's first film role since his dual Oscar-winning performance in The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), a gap of about thirty-four years. Director Richard Donner persuaded the double amputee to take a sabbatical from his work as head of the US President's "Commission for Affirmative Action on Hiring the Handicapped" to appear in the key supporting role of Wings.

High on my list of top 10 movies of all time.
29 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

John Savage provides us with another look at his exceptional talent with perhaps his finest performance since The Deerhunter, with a supporting cast including Oscar-nominated Diana Scarwid and another of my favorites, David Morse. A truly feel-good movie, directed by Richard Donner, that explores the depths of human emotion while depicting the sometimes comedic, sometimes heartwrenching stories of characters who are all crippled, either physically, mentally, or morally. It is a great mystery to me why this movie has not been made available on DVD, and if I knew how to achieve its release, I would be relentless in my pursuit of that goal!
