When I was about ten years old I watched this movie, no lie. I found it very inspirational and still do today.
Synopsis of the Wings of Eagle
A drinking buddy--Cmdr. Frank "Spig" Wead. John Wayne stars as Wead, a reckless WW1 Naval aviator who (it says here) was instrumental in advancing the cause of American "air power". In private life, Wead becomes estranged from his wife Minnie (Maureen O'Hara) after the death of their baby. Drinking heavily, Wead tumbles down the stairs of his home, and as a result he is apparently paralyzed for life. With the help of happy-go-lucky Navy mechanic Carson (Dan Dailey), Wead is able to regain minimal use of his legs, but it seems clear that his Naval career is over. Fortunately, he manages to find work as a prolific Hollywood screenwriter, and after the attack of Pearl Harbor he is called back to active duty to oversee the construction of "jeep carriers".

In the movie John Wayne had a friend that cared about him. Yes this is important to him because his friend came in everyday and made him sing “I’m gunna move that toe“,I’m gunna move that toe.”” over and over again
In this video, there is so much to learn. It is about friendship, determination, heart, inspiration and the most of it is about the brain. If you put your mind to something there is no telling what you can do…. There is NO limit!!
