    Description

    Wings (Paramount, 1927). Fine/Very Fine. Linen Finish Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    Heritage is pleased to present a complete lobby card set for Wings for the first time. Director William Wellman drew on his years in an elite flying squadron to push the cinematic technology of the day to its limit when he created this film's timeless aerial sequences. Richard Arlen and Charles "Buddy" Rogers are well paired as they fight it out over both Clara Bow and enemy soil, and Gary Cooper makes a memorable cameo appearance, which launched his career. General wear between the cards includes pinholes, some creases, mostly unobtrusive stains, and small tears. These issues have been partially addressed in the title card, in addition to a tear extending from the upper right background through the "S" of the title to the lower right edge. The title card also has strips of archival and paper tape on the verso, bracing the aforementioned tear. Other wear found in the set includes surface scuffs, as well as minor chips and paper lifts. The portrait card featuring the three leads has a stain in the upper part of the image. A few of the cards display toning and the card with Clara Bow and Charles Rogers has a small piece of paper tape on the verso bracing a crease. Lobby cards from this silent drama set during Word War I are few and far between, making this lot a top choice for discerning collectors.
