IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY January 29, 30 and 31 "A LIKELY / STORY" —with Barbara Hale, Bill Williams, Lannie Ross and ' Sam Levine This swell little comedy is) really a rib-tiekler. It is the! story of a G. I. who, through a? mistake and misinformation he„ overheard, thinks he has but a few days to live. He gets mixed up with romance and racketeers before he discovers that he is not going to die at all. He determines to win the girl involved ; in the case. There are a lot of laughs involved in this comedy- irama. ALSO ! The Short Subject Academy- Award Winner for 1917— "A Boy And His Dog" This splendid 20 minute Technicolor short was voted as the best released in 1947 from among 337 short subjects. In fact, it is even better than many features. Any lover of pets will find this a tremendous bit of entertainment. And last, but not least, another fine short— THE 1948 ROSE BOWX GAME between Michigan and 17. S. C. The most exciting moments of; this great game are packed into' a ten minute film that all foot-j ball fans are anxious to see. ' it SUNDAY - MONDAY February 1 and 2 HONEYMOON" —with Shirley Temple, Franchot Tone, Guy Madison and Grant Mitchell Bright, wholesome and thoroughly' engrossing is this comedy about a G. I. and his difficulty trying to get married in Mexico while having only a three-day pass. The picture is in excellent taste and is so finely contrived that not even the most Puritan mind can find anything but good fun in it. In taking a new step toward grown-up roles, Shirley shows thar she has great talent as a full-blown comedienne. The film sparkles with comedy and is very well produced. Countless millions who have been Shirley's fans through her childhood days are very happy with this film. "HONEYMOON"' has been a surprise at the boxoffices. It has and is really doing a very fine business and especially so in the small towns. ALSO—Another outstanding Short Subject— "Hollywood Wonderland" in Technicolor SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P.
