Veteran movie producer A.C. Lyles first saw the World War I epic "Wings" in 1928 on his 10th birthday. He's lost count of how many times he's seen the Oscar-winning film over the past 75 years, but his enthusiasm and love for the picture have never waned. So he's as excited as a youngster at the prospect of attending two screenings this week of a newly restored print at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Samuel Goldwyn Theater. "This picture meant so much to me," Lyles says.
