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 GO FISHING" ; THURSDAY, FRIDAY • and SATURDAY Z January 3, 4 and 5 "THE FIRST YANK INTO » TOKYO —with Tom Neal and Barbara Hale Packed with all the action, all the thrills that made "Back To Bataan" one of l&45's most exciting thrillers. For sheer excitement and action you can't beat this one. ALSO A two-reel Technicolor Short entitled "I AM AN AMERICAN" SUNDAY, MONDAY January 6 and 7 "THE PRIDE OF THE MARINES" —with John Garfield, Eleanor Parker, Dane Clark, John Ridgely and hundreds of others The actual and true life story of Marine Private Al Schmidt, who, having killed two hundred Japs loses his sight in the engagement. Many sequences are so vital and so exciting that you will find yourself gripping the edge of your chair—but it is a film that every single person should see—lest we forget what these gallant Marines went thru and how they saved Australia from invasion. There is a grand love story, too. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M.
