IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY December 4, 5 and 6 "RAMROD" —with Joel McCrea, Veronica Lake. Don DeFore, Preston Foster, Arleen Whalen and Charlie Rubles Here is the super-duper "Wes[ tern" that makes the biggest hit of all films with our patrons. At [ -least that is what the boxoffice checkup has always shown. . . . There are 100 minutes of action and thrills with the finest cast assembled in any film this year or any other year. Filmed in the ranch country of Wyoming, the scenic backgrounds are beautiful. It is the story' of the cattlemen versus the sheep,, ranchers and there is excitemenf' and action all the way throughl SUNDAY - MONDAY December 7 and 8 "COPACABANA" [ —with Groucho Marx, Carmen Miranda, Gloria Jean and Desni Arnaz and his Band Groucho and Carmen make a great pair of comedians and the | curvaceous lovlies, the "Copacabana" girls are most certainly an eyeful. The plot deals with | Carmen, a singer, who, with the I help of her agent. Groucho, is booked in two jobs at the Copa- I cabana Club. A mixup really 1 develops when Carmen tries to I play the two roles and the job J of liquidating one of the girls is up to Groucho. He is eventually | freed after many of the usual , Groucho antics. There is everything in this swell musical- comedy. You'll split your sides laughing at Groucho, and you'll enjoy the splendid singing by J Andy Russell - - and we're sure i you'll like the stunning beauty of the Copacabana Girls. For all around entertainment — see this one! SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. NnnititiiiniiuitiiitnuiiinmiiMi ^iMiiiiintminn. TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY December 9 and 10 "THE FABULOUS DORSEYS" with Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey | and their musical organizations The life story of the Dorsey I brothers is typically American. | Their individual talents and their rise to fame is traced throughout the earlier part of the film. The | musical numbers that are played arc more than worth the price of admission. Tommy Dorsey's playing of "Getting Sentimental , Over You" and "Marie" are real- 1 ly works of art This is the type [ of film that goes over big on Sunday engagements, but with '"^Welcome Stranger", "Variety Girl", "Dear Ruth" and "Desert Fury", there simply wasn't room lor any Sunday booking.
