No Poetry Accepted WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 14, 1948. IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY January 15, 16 and 17 "THE MACOMBER AFFAIR" —with Joan Bennett, Gregory Peck, and Robert Preston There is action galore in this gripping and exciting filmfare. The producers have gone into big game country in darkest Africa to film thi6 most popular novel by Hemingway. Gregory Feck, who has been a big hit in "Duel In The Sun - ' and "The Yearling", is superlative in this, too. Shots of many animals in their native haunts and also the tenseness under which the scenes are filmed is somehow felt as you watch the film carefully. SUNDAY - MONDAY January IS and 19 "THE ROMANCE OF ROSY RIDGE" —with Van Johnson, Thomas Mitchell, Janet Leigh and Dean Stockwell Van Johnson's sure-fire appeal and the homespun story is pegged toward the family audiences. The story of the bitter hatred between the North and South after the Civil War is subtly treated in this apt and able plea for better understanding and tolerance. The setting is in the Ozark mountains and believe it or not Van does a swell vocal job on mid-western folk balads. There is action in this too when Van discovers a band of outlaws who fan hatred be tween the northern and southern elements in the locality for their own gains. The action is then fast and furious. This is • the type of film that everyone enjoys. Homespun filmfare. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. iin»mmiiiinmii J eiiiiiinnnniimi TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY January 20 and 21 "THE ADVENTURES OF DON COYOTE" A Fine Western in Color Starring Richard Martin and Frances Raferty Lots of action and. many a thrill in this unusually beautiful out-of-doors film.
