    Description

    Wings (Paramount, 1927). Window Card (14" X 18.25").
    Director William Wellman, himself a wartime aviator, was not yet even thirty years old when he made this film about two World War I aviators (Buddy Rogers and Richard Arlen) who are in love with the same Red Cross nurse (Clara Bow). A young Gary Cooper also appeared in a small but crucial role as a veteran aviator. Wings was the first feature film to win an Academy Award, and this dazzling window card from the picture sports a flame-haired Bow against a soft, cotton candy-colored sky. The "Hear!...See!" tagline was added when the film (originally silent) was released with a musical soundtrack. Professional restoration has addressed pinholes in the borders, a tear in the bottom border, corner bends, and 3 1/2" of the imprint area has been replaced. Fine+.
