BBFC insight: 

<p>WINGS is a restoration of the 1927 black and white silent war film starring Clara Bow in which two love rivals join the US Army Air Service and are posted to France during the First World War.</p><dl><dt>Violence</dt><dd><p>The film includes several set piece battles on the ground, as well as a number of aerial dogfights. Soldiers and airmen are shot or bayoneted but with no clear injury detail and only occasional brief sight of blood in black and white. In one scene two men box as part of their military training. One man is twice knocked to the ground and a small trickle of blood runs from the corner of his mouth.</p></dd></dl><p>The film's caption cards contain a single use of very mild bad language ('hell'). On two occasions Germans soldiers are referred to as 'Heinies'. There are scenes of cigarette smoking but the film as a whole neither glamorises nor promotes the practice of smoking.</p>
