Don't expect a new transfer of WINGS to air on TCM this evening. Sadly, It isn't going to happen. However, While it is the same old, same old tonight, there is very big late breaking news on WINGS. Presumably it will be coming to DVD and Blu-ray before to long now. Check out this quote by David Shepard this morning. It is the first real confirmation that Paramount is indeed doing something major with WINGS. Now if we could just get a similar announcement concerning THE BIG PARADE, from Warners. That is taking much to long in my view.
"Paramount is working on its own version of WINGS using the Academy's beautiful tinted restoration, a new orchestral recording of the 1927 score by J. S.Zamecnik (which is wonderful) and sound effects as done in the roadshow screenings which will be executed with modern technology by Ben Burtt. Be patient."
