One hundred years ago this month, America entered World War I. Cinema St. Louis, the Webster University Film Series and Centre Francophone commemorate the centenary with a screening of William A. Wellman's 1927 film Wings. The silent drama focuses on two rivals (Charles Rogers and Richard Allen) who join the war effort as fighter pilots and end up falling in love with the same woman (Jobyna Ralston). It won the first-ever Academy Award for Best Picture and features some of the most impressive aerobatics ever caught on film. Tonight's 7:30 p.m. screening of Wings includes a live soundtrack provided by the Prima Vista Quartet of France. The film is shown at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; Tickets are $10.
