DL, spent the holidays with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Art Burdick, IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY JANUARY S, 9 and 10 "THE GANG'S ALL HERE" Filmed in Technicolor —with Alice Faye, Charlotte y Greenwood, Carmen Miranda,' Phil Baker and Johnny Morrison Here is an "oldie" that is beirij* brought back with great success. Alice Faye has permanently retired from the screen and this one was her last picture. Here is a film with fine songs, a grand story and one that is packed with comedy. The picture played everywhere but Postville at. the time it came out in 1944. Present day films simply do not measure, up to these older ones. / mnimnmmimmmnminil SUNDAY - MONDAY JANUARY 11 and 12 ^POSSESSED" —with Joan Crawford, Van Hef- lln, Raymond Massey, Geraldlne Brooks and John Ridgely Joan Crawford gives a never- to-be-forgotten performance of a woman madly in love with a heel. Raymond Massey is terrific as her middle-aged suitor. If there has been a more masterful portrayal than the one given by Joan Crawford, most movie reviewers would like to know when. This is without a doubt the greatest woman's picture since Helen Hayes' "The Sins of Madelon Claudet." We have just finished with "Unfaithful," which did very well at the boxoffice. It, too, was a so-called "woman's picture." SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. HltlMIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIMII The Wm. Shope family left New Year's eve for a vacation trip to Los Angeles. California.
