Wings, the first movie to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and the only silent film to win, is still remarkably enjoyable to watch.  The story is a fairly conventional one--two flyboys, both in love with the same girl, go off to fight World War I, and male 0008911

It's a perfectly serviceable plot, except for the key logical flaw that both young men have inexplicably fallen in love with  the boring girl down the street and have somehow failed to notice that Clara Bow is the girl next door. Both male leads really flew their  airplanes, and the dogfight footage is still spectacular. The main reason to watch Wings, though, is to see the difference between an actor  and a movie star. There are many actors in the film, but only two movie stars. Clara Bow is a treat to watch every minute she's on screen,  and young Gary Cooper in a tiny role nearly walks away with the movie, mostly by standing there and looking dreamy. It's well worth  sitting through a little cheesy organ music for a movie this much fun. --Ali Davis
