Memorial Day Silent Film- Wings 1927

Filmed in 1927 Wings is an epic WWI drama telling the story of three friends, one played by Clara Bow, and their war time adventures.  It's also famous for featuring cinemas first same sex kiss.  Here are four amazing clips from the film:

Clara Bow as the Girl next store:

The Paris party scene: 

The aerial battle: 

The famous kiss


  1. Oh I just love this picture! I saw it when I was still in pigtails and is the picture that lit the fires of my love for silent film. I need to watch it again...thanks for posting about this, I completely forgot about wings!

  2. Have seen the 'kiss' section before.......very touching and sad.

  3. Great video clips. The aerial battle scenes are amazing!
    Happy Memorial Day!

  4. Thank you for sharing about another excellent classic silent film with us. The kiss scene in Wings really makes one stop and reflect on how coding halted/stunted the potential progress in terms of more advanced views on sexuality and other (at the time) taboo subjects.
