Four years ago this winter this film played at the Iris during a three day blizzard. With the temperature around 20 below zero and many side roads blocked, the film played to less than 168 people in three nights. Therefore, it is evident that in this area there are several hundred people who did not get to see this fine musical. Those who did see it will certainly want to see it again, and if you were one of the many who didn't see it at that time don't miss it. With the exception of "The Dolly Sisters" this one is considered Betty Grable's best film. SUNDAY, MONDAY and TUESDAY February 17, 18 and 19 "WEEK END AT THE WALDORF" —with Van Johnson, Walter Pidgeon, Lana Turner and Ginger Rogers This is perhaps this season's finest drama. In fact, here is a film that has everything: comedy, drama, pathos and romance. Four of the finest stars in the business play the leading roles. To tell you the complete story of "Week End At The Waldorf" would spoil the film for you— but there is one that you should know and that is the film is doing a tremendous business. For the "Bobby Soxers" there is Van Johnson; for the "Wolves" there is Lana Turner - - and there you have something. Owing to the length of this swell film the time of showings are as follows: Sunday Matinee at 3:30 o'clock. Sunday Night at 7.00 and 9:30. Monday and Tuesday Nights One Show at 8:00 o'clock WEDNESDAY ONLY February 20 "DANGEROUS PARTNERS" ALSO "ROUGH RIDERS OF CHEYENNE" A very exciting "Western." W. A.
