IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY February 5, 6 and 7 "HURRICANE" —with Dorothy Lamour and Jon Hall Back in 1940, Samuel Goldwyn produced this action packed film. ; Goldwyn has recently given the' screen "Pride of the Yankees" and more recently the Academy'- Award winner, "The Best Years of Our Lives." These two, with many other noteworthy films are positive proof of the man's ability to turn out fine films. This film, "HURRICANE", contains the greatest storm scenes ever produced on the screen. Nothing has ever been made to compare to it Recently in Oelwein and Waverly the film out-drew all of the later films that were played there the last three months. As far as our records show this film has NEVER PLAYED IN POSTVILLE. SUNDAY - MONDAY February 8 and 9 "SONG OF THE THJN MAN" —with Myrna Loy, BUI Powell and Kennan Wynn This is the first "Thin Man" film in a long time. Bill Powell's illness held up filming of it for several years. Its background is a cabaret where there is music and song. One of the musicians suddenly is shot by someone. The Thin Man takes over and finally solves the mystery. This is a very clever film and not the run of the mill mystery film. It has lots of toe tingling music and many, many Bill Powell wise cracks. There is good entertainment for young and old in this,one. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. MiiiMimMiiimiii .t ii*»iiiittiHminmi TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY February 10 and 11 "UNTAMED FURY" —with Bob Lowery and Patricia Morrison Here is out-of-doors action with accent on action plus. The story has to do with a young couple who make their living catching live alligators for zoos and circuses. To say it is packed with action is putting it mildly. There are scenes' that keep you on edge. In fact, every nerve to your body will tingle. ALSO "WILD WEST" Filmed in Tru Color, this fine "Western" is really a honey. Eddie Dean sings as only Eddie Dean can. Whether you like this boy's personality or not, the fact remains that he has a very fine voice. The color, too, is beautiful. This Double Bill is packed with more action and excitement than any yon have seen anywhere and anytime. Tuesday & Wednesday — are — CASH NIGHTS! Douglas R.
