    Description

    Wings (Paramount, 1927). Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14"). During World War I, Richard Arlen served in the Royal Canadian Flying Corps as a pilot, but he never saw combat. After the war he drifted around and eventually wound up in Los Angeles, where he got a job as a motorcycle messenger at a film laboratory. Legend has it that he crashed into the gates of Paramount Studio and from there was cast in films. His big break came when he was cast as a pilot in the Academy Award winning film, "Wings." This lovely portrait of Richard Arlen, as well as the card depicting one of the final scenes in the film, Arlen's death scene, are offered in this lot. Both linen finish cards are in excellent condition. The portrait card has a pinhole in three corners with a minor chip off of the upper right corner. The other card has a single pinhole in three of the corners but is otherwise pristine. Very Fine+.

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