March 2015 Blind Spot: WINGS (1927)

I was pretty excited to finally watch this movie. I'm not usually into silent films, but this one came highly recommended. The film starts off with a light, whimsical tone in small town America where Jack (Charles ‘Buddy’ Rogers) is working on his beloved car and dreaming of flying. The girl next door Mary (Clara Bow) is in love with Jack but …
