IRIS Theatre Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY January 17, 18 and 19 "THE HOUSE ON 92nd ST." Here is an actual and authentic story of the F. B. I. in action—a story that could not be told until the war was over. It's packed with more thrills and more action than any film you can name. In the cast are William Wythe, Lloyd Nolan and Sig-na Hasso. It is only part of the great work the F. B. I. did in breaking up countless sabotage groups. Work that saved hundreds of lives and millions of dollars worth of material and equipment. The film has really been "clicking." BE SURE TO SEE IT! SUNDAY, MONDAY January 20 and 21 "MILDRED PIERCE" —Who was she? — What did she do? — She was the kind of a woman most men wanted but shouldn't have. Joan Crawford, playing the role of Mildred Pierce is terrific. Supported by Jack Carson. Playing the mother role, she gives one of the finest screen portrayals of her entire career. The story is easily one of the season's most dramatic and is full of pathos and heart- appeal. Please do not disclose the surprise ending. To do so will spoil the film for others. 8UNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY January 22 and 23 Roy Rogers and Trigger in— "SUNSET ON THE ELDORADO" None have been better.
