  1. I just found your 2013 review of I Wanted Wings (1941) on IMDB. You noted you received a DVD copy (from AMC’s broadcast) from Barbara at Reel Old Films. The link in the review no longer works. My father was an extra in the film, while an Air Corps cadet at Kelly and Randolph Fields. Do you know if there is still any way I could get a copy? Many thanks,
