I’ve never seen William Wellman‘s Wings (’27), and so today’s discovery of this sepia-toned tracking shot was quite the knockout. Notice that each couple is conveying a different situation — the soldier and the well-dressed debutante, the gigolo and the older woman, the lesbian lovers, the cautious couple (younger woman, military guy) involved in a clandestine affair, the bickering couple (woman throwing a drink in man’s face) and finally the flyboys and their champagne.
