Postville, Iowa N THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY January 22, 23 and 24 "ALONG CAME JONES" -"1 —with Gary Cooper and Loretta Young Released in 1944. this exciting Western" was one of the best of its kind. Because of bad weather and bad roads the business done here at the Iris was less than thirty-five per cent of the normal amount. There are large number of movie goers in this immediate neighborhood who 'did not see it. It is one of Gary's best pictures—if not his very best. Under normal wea ther conditions this film originally did a terrific business. Recently at the Grand Theater in Oelwein it played to a fine Saturday night crowd. People were lined up waiting for the second show. These older and most certainly better films have done and are doing better business than many new ones. SUNDAY - MONDAY January 25 and 26 "DARK PASSAGE" —with Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart These two are boxoffice dynamite in small towns and large. Bogart, wrongly convicted ot his wife's murder, is sent to prison for life. He escapes and by means of plastic surgery, is able to keep on the hunt for the guilty party and by the aid of Bacall he finally catches the guilty one. There is never a dull moment in this exciting two hour mystery film. In fact, here is a film that keeps you on the very edge of your chair. Bogart and Bacall are "boxoffice" in no small degree. Theatres with whom we have checked report the film to be doing a great job of ticket selling—particularly so among the adult patrons. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M, wmttuuuuniutuuiui^ TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY January 27 and 28 "BANJO" —with Sharon Lyn, Walter Reed and Una O'Connor There, is the cutest little girl and the cutest little dog in this fine and glean film of small town life. Full of comedy and human appeal. Here is a fine bit of entertainment for those who love pets and children. It is one of those unpretentious films that come along once in a while that really turn out to be what the film business calls "sleepers." . . . For every member of the family this is a fine film. —ALSO "THE LAW OF THE CANYON" —with Charles SUrrett and . Smiley Bornette There is more action in the Durango Kid series than any of the other types of "Western" we have shown. While some like a lot of singing in a western there are a large percentage who prefer out and out action. For those who like either type this will fill the bill.
