It's also notable for the fact that it won the very first UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for Best Picture. Note that there were two categories for Best Picture in the first year. The one that's officially counted today is "Best Production," which was won by this film. The other one, "Unique and Artistic Production"--an award that was never given again after that first ceremony--was won by ''[[{{Film/Sunrise}} Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans]]''.

''Wings'' is a 1927 film directed by Creator/WilliamAWellman that tells a love story between two pilots, Jack and David, and two girls, Mary and Sylvia. Both Jack and David are in love with Sylvia, and Jack doesn't even notice that Mary is crazy about him, despite the fact that Mary is played by Clara Bow. Their lives are disrupted by UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne. Notable for its realistic air battles, filmed without miniatures or rear projection (the latter hadn't been invented yet).

* BillingDisplacement: Even though Clara Bow has top billing, her character, Mary, only appears sporadically. She didn't even exist in the original draft, and was added mainly because SexSells.
