The battle scenes in this silent film about a love triangle between two World War One airmen and an army nurse are a clear highlight of the first Best Picture winner. They are gory, thrilling, blessed by the lack of sound (it allowed Wellman to attach cameras to the wings of the planes as they performed their aeronautical manuevers) and often spectacular.

"I can totally get why this film won Academy Award for best picture. It's very well-made for its age, air combat scenes looks spectacular, especially when you know that there are no computer effects behind it. Regardless, people might get tire of this kind of story, since it's seen many times in some later films. Also, there were some flaws here and there, with few silly sequences, but this mixture of humor, drama and tense is still good and worth watching. "

" Not a review of the film --- This is the first film to win an Oscar and it wasn't until 2012 that it was issued on DVD. My typical dvd by mail service didn't seen to inclined to actually own a copy so I waited... and waited... and waited... The blu-ray version is JAW DROPPING STUNNING and they managed to get everything right. The daytime is sepia toned while the night shots are blue tinted film stock. The restoration of the hand-painted battle scenes is impeccable. It was actually confusing"
