    Description

    Wings (Paramount, 1927). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Former aviator William Wellman, only 28, directed this war picture, the first feature film to win an Academy Award, and still the only silent film to win Best Picture. Two World War I aviators (Buddy Rogers and Richard Arlen) compete for the love of a nurse (Clara Bow). This gorgeous title card pictures all three of the stars. We sold two different style original release one sheets in previous auctions for $86,250 and $63,250. This card has one pinhole in the upper center border and one pinhole in the lower center border. There is a very minor bend in the upper border. These linen finish cards did not hold up well over the years; and this card has to be one of the cleanest and brightest unrestored cards of this finish we have ever seen! It must assuredly be the best condition title card for this film in existence. Very Fine/Near Mint.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
