Lee and Daniel take flight with "Wings" (1927). The first Oscar winner for Best Picture (although called Best Production at the time), does this epic mixture of amazing WWI action and technical expertise jive well with the love triangle, broad comedic elements, and fairly blatant homosexual themes? Is the amazing Clara Bow used to her full potential here? The conversation turns into a bit of a dogfight as the hosts fly all around from topic to topic. Racism against the Dutch; the USA's role in WWI; pro-American propaganda; the more liberal attitudes of the 1920s; and Clara Bow fucking everyone she damn well pleased, are just a few of the things brought up. Also covered: listener comments and what they've watched as of late.
