No Poetry Accepted. NATIONAL €DITORIAl_ I^WXSSOCJATION WEDNESDAY. JANUARY 30, 1946. IRIS Theatre Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 and 2 "RHAPSODY IN BLUE" —with Joan Leslie, Robert Aldo, Al Jolson. Oscar Levant, Alexis Smith, Hazel Scott, Charles Coburn and countless others To come boldly out in print with the statement that "Rhapsody In Blue" is better than "Anchors Aweigh" or to even say that it is as good takes a lot of fortitude. Yet there are right in this little community several people who liked "Rhapsody In Blue" better. It truly is a great musical — this life story of a great American composer of popular music. Paul Whiteman's fine band playing some of the George Gershwin popular numbers is a treat for any ear. The film has been doing tremendous business not in the big houses, but in the small theatres, too. Don't miss this tremendous film as you may be one of the many who will like it better than "Anchors Aweigh." It also runs well over two hours, therefore the shows will begin at 7:00 and 9:30. SUNDAY, MONDAY February 3 and 4 "THE SPANISH MAIN" —with Maureen O'Hara and Paul Ilenried in the leading roles and filmed in Technicolor There is more action in this tempestuous story than any film in a long time. Here is the film that moves with the speed of a buzz bomb. It has spectacle and sweep and is a lavish production in every sense of the word. The cast is excellent and Maureen O'Hara is positively a knockout. Her beauty is breath-taking. The film is really terrific. Nearly two hours of action and thrills with a love story that makes most women's hearts pound. Nothing slow and nothing less than swell entertainment is "THE SPANISH MAIN." SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY February 5 and 6 Roy Rogers, Gabby Hayes and Dale Evans in— "DON'T FENCE ME IN" The King of Cowboys hits the bell again. It is really a fine film for ALL classes of fans. ALSO "TELL IT TO A STAR" —with Ruth Terry and Robert Livingstone A cute musical film that you will go for! Tuesday & Wednesday — ARE—CASH NIGHTS! Wanted—Baby stroller. Geo. Bowles, R. 1, Postville.— Phone No. 22-F-7-1. Milo Gcricke went to Dos Moines Tuesday to attend a frozen foods processors' meeting.
