IRIS Theatre Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY APRIL 4, 5 and 6 "THEY WERE EXPENDABLE" with Robert Montgomery. John Wayne. Jack Holt, Ward Bond, and countless others Every movie reviewer and every person who has seen this stupendous production in the larger city theaters consider it to have the Academy Award for 1946 safely tucked away. The producers have lavished time, brains, and heart on this film with the result that it is simply "Super" For two hours and a half it holds audiences enthralled, misty eyed and chuckling. The film is brilliantly cast and is filmed with the cooperation of the Navy and the Coast Guard. The story was a "best seller" and has to do with the struggle of two Naval Lieutenants to obtain recognition of their P. T. boats. Recognition finally comes in a manner so gripping and tremendous that your heart will pound. OWING TO THE LENGTH OF THIS GREAT SHOW, THERE WILL BE ONE EACH NIGHT- COMMENCING AT 8:00 P. M. SUNDAY, MONDAY APRIL 7 and S "MY REPUTATION" —with Barbara Stanwyck and George Brent Here is an excellent drama with fine acting and a well knit story full of tender and human emotions. Barbara Stanwyck's performance is superb and carries so much emotional appeal that it leaves you misty-eyed. Two new youngsters, Scotty Beckett and Bobby Cooper, who plays Miss Stanwyck's older son, each steal the show. A widow's battle against slander and her efforts to keep the love of her two sons, make this an unusual drama. In fact it is easily the best dramatic film of this 1945-46 season.
