IRIS Theatre Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY February 7, 8 and 9 Robert Hutton and Joan Leslie in "TOO YOUNG TO KNOW" There just couldn't be a finer and yet funnier domestic comedy of a young "air" man and his bride. There is a grand story, too—so true to life that it could even happen to you and I. You will laugh a little and you will cry a little and you will go for this swell pair of youngsters who give you an hour and forty minutes of down to earth entertainment—so you'd better see "TOO YOUNG TO KNOW." SUNDAY, MONDAY February 10 and 11 BETTE DAVIS IN— "THE CORN IS GREEN" When service men tell you they think that this is the best film from Bette in a long time— they are not fooling. It is the story of a kind and devoted school teacher who sacrifices her life to give a deserving and ambitious young boy a chance for a college education. It is truly an inspiring story and is packed with human heart-appeal that you leave the theater with the feeling that this is a pretty darn good old world after all because there are still people in it as unselfish and kind as the school teacher in this story. Bette Davis is tremendous. If she doesn't win the Academy Award for this there is something wrong somewhere. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M.
