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.

The rest of this film is a... read more

Description: This silent film classic deals with two World War I pilots in love with the same woman. Actual footage of air battles adds to the film's realism. WINGS was the first film ever made that graphically captured the emotional combination of ... Full Descriptionfreedom and fear of flying in combat. Director William Wellman drew on his years in an elite flying squadron and pushed the cinematic technology of the day to its limit when he created this film's timeless aerial sequences. The story revolves around two young men, of different classes, who have both fallen for the same young woman before they head off to combat. Richard A ... (more)

Lopussa nähdään kuitenkin muutamia meheviä melodramaattisuuksia. Keskivaiheilla tapahtuva hassutteluryyppäysjak"
