    Wings (Paramount, 1927). Jumbo Lobby Card Set of 8 (14" X 17").
    The phenomenal jumbo lobby card set offered in this lot is a Heritage first, a treasure that was certainly worth the wait! The cards were inspired by the film billed as "An Epic of the Air," starring Clara Bow, Buddy Rogers, and Richard Arlen. The picture was honored with the very first Best Picture Academy Award in 1929 (then referred to as the "Best Production" award). It is also notable for a brief but memorable appearance by a young Gary Cooper. Arlen had been a fighter pilot in World War I, and Rogers learned to fly during the course of the picture, as filming closeup scenes required the actors, during the flying scenes, to not only fly the planes, but operate the motorized cameras, act, and land safely as well. The result is an engaging film, as thrilling today as it was when it was previewed in San Antonio in 1927. The linen finish jumbo lobby card set captures the stars in action, along with beautiful life-size portraits. A very light crease can be detected on each card, but otherwise the lobbies are in exceptional condition. The original envelope is also included. Very Fine+.
