Movies, The Ultime Oscars Project

Wings (1927)

I think Wings is the only silent film Oscar winner.

I really can’t post a decent review since I know no other 1920s film, so I have nothing to compare it with.

But here, let me try.

– I wasn’t expecting the quality of the film (effects and stunts).
– The Jack Powell character was kindov a jerk. I’m not happy that he got the girl at the end. Spoiler alert. btw.
– Clara Bow was stunning. So stunning. But she’s not on screen as much.
– Tons of planes!

Again, for a pre-worldwar2 movie, Wings is pretty impressive.
