Description
The life-inspired story of reckless, fun-loving, romantic "Spig" Wead, Squadron Commander!

Cmdr. Frank "Spig" Wead was a pioneer aviator, renowned screenwriter (whose works include John Ford's They Were Expendable) and a man of war. The skies beckoned Spig to action; a crippling injury ultimately left him powerless to act, propelling him to discover the power of his pen. He was talented, driven, flawed, a friend of Ford's - and the subject of this compassionate biography.

John Wayne plays Spig and Ford directs The Wings of Eagles, which also offers a fascinating glimpse into the ways and world of Ford: Ward Bond plays moviemaker John Dodge, a role modeled on Ford. Maureen O'Hara, Wayne's five-time co-star (including Ford's The Quiet Man), and Dan Dailey (of Ford's 1952 What Price Glory?) play Spig's indomitable wife Min and cigar-chomping sidekick "Jughead" Carson.

    Comments about this product:

    Aviation buffs already know this movie. History addicts already know the plot. This movie brought together with some really decent acting on John's part is a story worth telling. Guess what, there's costs for everything in life. It's the sad notes that brings a reality flavor that's actually a bit surprising. We've got to remember, early aviation didn't come with the same set of rules and neither did the people who somehow survived it and their families.
