WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 26. 1M5. IRIS Theatre Postville, Iowa MERRY CHRISTMAS and Best Wishes for a HAPPY NEW YEAR TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY December 25 and 26 "GEORGE WHITE'S SCANDALS" —featuring Joan Davis and Jack Haley and the Goldwyn Girls, Gene Kruppa and his band plus other fine entertainers There is everything in this one that goes in for fun. Everything, in fact, that everybody likes. Good music, rib-tickling comedy and a good story. — ALSO — "LOST AND FOUND" a good technicolor cartoon, and "SUNNY DUNHAM" Band Act Matinee Christmas Day at 2:30 P. M. THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY December 27, 28 and 29 "YOU CAME ALONG" with Robert Cummings, Lisbeth Scott, and Cedar Rapids, Iowa's Don DeFore Assigned to a nation - wide bond selling tour, DeFore, Cummings and Charles Drake meet up with Miss Scott . Before the tour is over Robert and Lisbeth fall in love and marry, despite the fact that Robert is supposed to die of an incurable blood disease he had contracted in India . . . To tell more of the story would spoil your fun and the ending of the film might then be exposed. But, it's a very fine dramatic film that everyone will go for. SUNDAY, MONDAY December 30 and 31 Fred MacMurray and Lyn Bari "THE LIFE OF CAPT. EDDIE RICKENBACKER" One of the most exciting and human men of today is Eddie Rlckenbacker. A great auto race driver and a great flyer in World War I, there is not a dull moment in this exciting film. And there are plenty of laughs watching the old style Indianapolis auto races of years back, especially with some of the old cars that were the last word in speed in their day. This is one swell show and I know you will like every minute of it. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY January 1 and 2 Danny Kaye and Virginia Mayo in Samuel Goldwyn's— "WONDER MAN" Filmed in technicolor, this is THE MUSICAL FILM of 1945! Danny Kaye's second starring film is a smart hit that if you have been reading the ads in the Chicago Tribune and noted how extensively it has been played all over that city, you will observe that the picture is really popular. If there is any comedian on the screen that can make you laugh like Kaye, we would like to know the guy. Playing a dual role he is a riot. The picture has beautiful girls, song and dances and they are great— but Danny Kaye's fun-making tops everything. ALSO—A grand two-reel Technicolor act— "LET'S CO FISHING" Dr. C. M. Morgan went to Ames on ( Saturday to be with his family for hus went to Chicago on business Sat- Christmas.
