The Wings of Eagles

12.99

Commander Frank "Spig" Wead was a pioneer aviator, renowned screenwriter 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 modelled on Ford. Maureen O'Hara, Wayne's five-time co-star and Dan Dailey play Spig's indomitable wife Min and cigar-chomping sidekick "Jughead" Carson.
