Wellman (1896-1975) in this engrossing 1995 study is Clint Eastwood, who appeared in Wellman's penultimate 1958 movie Lafayette Escadrille. 'He was wild. He was from a wild era of filmmaking, ' Eastwood recalls, referring to the freewheeling Hollywood of the 1920s and '30s. The documentary chronicles how the Massachusetts-born Wellman's daring WWI flying record helped land him his breakthrough assignment in Hollywood: directing Wings, an Academy Award winner for Best Pictures in 1927. Included are clips from such Wellman screen classics as The public enemy (1931), Wild boys of the road (1933), A star is born (1937), The Ox-Bow incident (1943), Battleground (1949) and The high and the mighty (1954)"--TV guide, August 13, 1996.
