No one won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1917 – the award’s first year of existence – signaling the prestige of future winners. For nearly a century, the award would be given to deserving novels by the world’s best writers. Since the creation of the Academy Awards in 1927, there has always been a winner. But only one film will be the first winner and that honor goes to Wings, a silent film set during the First World War, which stars a young Gary Cooper, among other cinema greats. As part of its screening series, ArthouseFW, at the Kimbell Art Museum, the Lone Star Film Society presents the film in all its monochrome glory at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Renzo Piano Pavilion. As a special treat, there will be musical accompaniment by Curtis Heath, a local musician and composer who recently scored the film, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. Tickets start at $4 and are available at lonestarfilmsociety.com.
