DECEMBER 10, 1947 B. M. Sweitzer of Hudson was a guest last week in the home of his son -in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. James A. Gregg, and family. IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY December 11, 12 and 13 "BOOMERANG" Some few years back Twentieth Century Fox came out with an F. B. I. film. "The House on 92nd Street." This was one of the most exciting films to ever come out of Hollywood. The film company is following thru with another great action film, based on a. true incident in the life of the late Homer Cummings, who was Attorney General of the United States. In tho cast of "BOOMERANG" are Dana Andrews, Jane Wyatt, Lee Cobb and Arthur Kenned}'. The film packs more suspense and thrills than any other since "The House on 92nd Street." We had a large patronage on that picture and nothing but compliments. After all the comedies and "Westerns" that have been on the programs this one should be a welcome change. SUNDAY - MONDAY December 14 and 15 "LIVING IN A BIG WAY" —with Gene Kelly, Marie MacDonald, Charles Winninger, Spring Byington, Phyllis Thaxter and Jean Adair A soldier meets a girl while on furlough and they fall in love and marry in haste. He goes overseas and she regrets her hasty marriage- Upon returning he finds that she is the daughter of an industrial tycoon. Determined to keep her at any cost he moves into her home, but fails to do so. She finally realizes that she loves this brash young man and all's well that ends well. This is the type of film that goes over big to all classes of audiences. Gene Kelly's singing and dancing is one big reason. Marie MacDonald's beauty is another.' There are many, many laughs— but it is Gene Kelly who is tops. Good entertainment, this one! DON 'T MISS IT! SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY December 16 and, 17 "ABIE'S IRISH ROSE" We have been advised by several people that have seen this one that it is a swell cpmedy. It 's the old story of an Irish girl marrying a Jewish boy. As a stage play it was really terrific. It was made into a silent picture with Buddy Rogers playing the lead. The old silent film was a boxoSice winner. If you have not seen this one do so. We haven't heard of any one who didn't get a lot of laughs out of it ALSO A GENE ACTRY "Oldie" that is a food one— "THE MAN FROM MUSIC MOUNTAIN" Makes no difference whether you have or have not seen these older films, the fact that pre-war films were better made, and are better entertainment. This one no exception. Tuesday & Wednesday — are — CASH NIGHTS!
