Product Details


Product Description

Director William A. Wellman's masterpiece is the first film to win the Academy Award® for Best Picture. Featuring a meticulous restoration and a newly recorded soundtrack based on the original score, Wings comes to Blu-ray for the very first time. This timeless story of love and loss follows two men who go to war and the girl they leave behind. Popular Twenties "It" girl Clara Bow stars in this unforgettable World War I epic alongside Richard Arlen, Charles "Buddy" Rogers and the legendary Gary Cooper in a cameo appearance. The aerial battle sequences still rank among the best in motion picture history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wings-an absolute treasure! Feb. 5 2012
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Wings(released Aug/27)has always been touted as the winner of the first Best Picture award.Technically this is not the case.When they won their award in 1929 it was for the Most Outstanding Production for 1927/28.It was a year later that a Best Production award was instituted and the Academy decided retrospectively that that was to be the equivalent award.A year after that,this was again changed to Best Picture,whose namesake it has remained to this day.No matter,this was the start of Hollywoodland's(after /49,Hollywood's)self congratulatory back slapping.
Wings has been restored magnificently by Paramount,this their first release in their 100th birthday celebration.The original tinting and length is back.The only thing you won't see,as in the original theatrical release,is one of the early uses of Magnascope,a widescreeen effect used in some sequences.
Starring in this extravaganza is Charles Buddy Rogers,who became better known as a bigband leader and went on to steal Mary Pickford's heart in real life.Richard Arlen was a Paramount contract player at the time and he went on to marry his Wings co-star Jobyna Ralston,well known as a staple in many a Harold Lloyd film.Gary Cooper got his career start in this film,at the time the boyfriend to the star of the picture Clara Bow.Clara eats up the scenery every moment she is in the film.It is a testimony to Clara's emoting and acting skills in general that we get so involved,that we literally want to reach out and dry those tears away from her eyes.To top this,she is in and out of the film throughout its run,with far less screen time than her co stars Arlen and Rogers.But when you think of Wings,Clara is pretty much the first person you think of.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit above average, I guess. May 7 2004
By Esn024
Format:VHS Tape
Well, here is exactly the type of silent film that most people do not watch nowadays; it's neither a comedy like the Charlie Chaplin movies, nor a horror film like Nosferatu. This, instead, is a typical American action/drama flick, with ample quantities of both.
It certainly suffers at times for being a silent film; dialogues have to be displayed on the screen, and this happens quite often because the story here is sometimes quite complex. Not only do the characters talk a lot, but the story also often requires some explaining, and some of the explanations can be quite long.
The action sequences are not as "big" as in they would be in movies today, but they are a lot more impressive in their own way. I was just amazed at how they could have shot some of those sequences; I got the impression that the person who was shooting was probably in quite a lot of danger, because I knew that they could not have used special effects in 1927; what I was seeing was the real thing. It was quite exhilirating to see those old, unsafe, WW1 planes in the air. I do not think that any director today would be crazy enough to duplicate something like this with real planes, so this is probably the only chance anyone has to see these planes in action, and feel like you're right in the thick of a dogfight.
That having been said, the film does stretch out for a bit too long sometimes. It never really gets boring, but it never really gets particularly interesting for most of the movie either. Most of the time, it's just entertaining enough to keep you watching it.
The reason I gave it a "4" is because the ending, when it comes, is quite good (don't let anybody spoil it for you; watch for yourself), and also because of the action sequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wings (1927) March 24 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is way ahead of its time, no wonder it won the Best picture Academy Award in 1927, Silent movies are for the most part under rated, the acting and the action is something we sit and watch in awe, these actors had to be very brave to perform some of the stunts we are entertained with, I loved this movie when it was aired through the night on a movie station, and after watching it in total awe, I had to find it, kudo's to you and your team for finding it and making it available. I will treasure it, and has already been watched three times the short time we have had it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never seen anything like it! March 27 2013
By V. Buttino TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This film really blew me away. Like, REALLY blew me away.

Admittedly, I'm not the biggest silent movie fan - they usually tend to bore me and I end up shutting them off after only half an hour. But this one kept me glued to the TV for over two hours! Paramount's restoration is unbelievable and I give it full credit for making me fall in love with this film. The picture was so sharp and vivid and the effects were awesome (for a movie as old as this one, that's incredible).

Wings has already gone down as one of my absolute favourite classic films! The story is an emotional one that will leave you in tears (yup, I was sobbing at one point). The cast was flawless and performed very well together (keep your eye out for a four-minute appearance by a young, virile Gary Cooper), and the battle scenes were flawless.

Well worth it to add this cinematic gem to your collection!

An incredible product. The story is wonderful but the reproduction is simply breathtaking. The new (optional) sound score is great too. I loved this product and it was well worth the wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing movie, ahead of its time
Wings, while certainly having some spots where the plot drags in its 2 hour 19 minute length, is worth at least one viewing by any movie fan. Read more
