Wings (1927) Rated NR

Two men, one rich and one middle class, fall in love with the same woman and become fighter pilots in World War I. Starring Clara Bow, Charles ‘Buddy’ Rogers, and Richard Arlen.

This film took me by surprise. It is the start of American cinema and one of the first films to win an Oscar. The acting is superb, and while the story is not new, it was the first, so every film that came after is actually copying this film. I would say the story of two men fighting over a girl is pretty interesting, especially throwing in the action of fighting for their country. This film also has some pretty gruesome scenes for a film of that era, as the death scenes almost look like horror films. It’s easy to see how this film influenced future films. This movie is worth a watch.
