Wings -- December 3, 2012

 This ad, from the November, 1928 Moving Picture Magazine,  touts Paramount's production of Wings, directed by Wild Bill Wellman, who had flown fighter planes in World War One.  I first saw it at the Avenue Theater, accompanied live on the Mighty Wurlitzer by Bob Vaughn.  The flying scenes are wonderful.  Clara Bow and Jobyna Ralston were the feminine leads.  Gary Cooper had a small part which led to bigger things.  The ad mentions that Wings was an early movie with a sound track of music and sound effects.
