Inaugural Best Picture “Wings” Gets The Restorative Treatment

After decades of waiting, Paramount Pictures has finally gotten around to restoring the silent classic Wings, which a.) introduced a then-barely known Gary Cooper to the masses which would soon adore him, b.) won the first-ever Oscar for Best Picture in 1927, and c.) outfitted Clara Bow in a Red Cross uniform, complete with tie. The film’s going to have a one-time special screening at the Academy, and then comes out on Blu-Ray and standard-def DVD next Tuesday. Look at it as history, look at it as a classic example of silent film making, look at it however you want. I’m getting it for Clara Bow, personally. (FULL ARTICLE: Bryan Alexander, USA Today)
