Author and Actor William Wellman Jr.
Bill’s presentation will center around the production of “Wings,” a massive undertaking even by today’s standards. The film employed 3,500 actors, 65 pilots and 165 aircraft. It featured leading actors of the time – Charles “Buddy” Rogers, William Arlen, and Clara Bow and introduced a young Gary Cooper in a role that launched his career. The film took a year to complete, but when it was released it turned out to be one of the most financially successful silent pictures ever. READ MORE…
