Wings, a ground-breaking aeronautical flick, which the first film to win an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1929, is at the Exeter Picturehouse as a World War I Centenary Screening.
The film was released in 1927 and tells the story of two flying aces who fall in love with the same girl.
For the time, it had the massive budget of $2 million, and set the benchmark for future aviation films with its realism and drama.
