IRIS Theatre Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY Feb. 2S and Mar. 1 and 2 "TORRID ZONE" with Pat O'Brien. Anne Sheridan and James Cajney The exciting and thrilling story of an American girl caught in the web of circumstances in one of South America's tough seaports. The film originally was released in the summer of 1941, but did not play in the Iris that year. There is more action in this than in many 'Westerns" and there is a finer story than any drama. — ALSO — Latest News and a fine two- reel subject entitled •I WONT PLAY" SUNDAY, MONDAY March 3 and 4 "OUR VINES HAVE TENDER GRAPES" —with little Margaret Obrien. little Butch Jenkins and supported by James Craig, Edward G. Robinson and Frances Gifford There has yet to be made and yet to reach the screen a finer story than this one. It .s the heart-warming story of the lives and loves of Norwegian farmers in Wisconsin. The story of the kind of people that we are indeed proud to have as citizens of these United States. People whose hearts are full of love and kindness and honest and God­ fearing. In towns where there is a large Norwegian population the film has done exceptional business. The Grand Theater in Decorah did a tremendous business. But, you who are of a different nationality will enjoy the film just as much. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P.
