Paramount Pictures is celebrating its centennial with a "truly magnificent, high-definition restoration of William A Wellman's 1927 World War I epic Wings," as Dave Kehr puts it in the New York Times. It'll be screening at Seattle's Northwest Film Forum on February 13 but it's also out on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, "the last of the Best Picture Oscar winners to appear on those formats in this country," as Daniel Eagan notes in a piece on the restoration for Smithsonian Magazine. Kehr points out that the famous flying sequences would be created digitally today and with "miniatures, rear projection and optical printing" in the 30s and 40s. "But in 1927 the only way to capture these effects was to perform them in front of live cameras, and Wellman found himself at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio commanding a 220-plane escadrille staffed by Army airmen and Hollywood stunt flyers."
