FRIDAY and SATURDAY February 19, 20 and 21/ "WHERE THERE'S LIFE v| THERE'S HOPE" —with Bob Hope, William Ben"- di.v and Signe Hasso Jammed with laughs and action. Bob starts out as a wisecracking disc jockey and winds- up behind the eight ball with a bunch of spies on his trail and a blonde honey trying to get him to agree to become a member of her government to save her neck. There isn't a dull moment in this one. In fact— there is more slapstick comedy than most Laurel and Hardy films. Hope's digs at Bing Cros by are very, very funny. ALSO A Beautiful Technicolor 22 -Minute Musical Revue— "SMOOTH SAILING" Mimtiiiiiiiiuinunnniiimnnitniiiumniiimtii SUNDAY - MONDAY February 22 and 23 "THE UNFINISHED DANCE" —with Margaret O'Brien, Cyd Charise, Karin Booth and / Danny Thomas j Filmed in Technicolor This tense drama of back stage people and their trials and "troubles, filmed in the making on the huge sound stages, makes this a gorgeous spectacle of music and beauty. Little Margaret is superb dancing and her fine acting make this a film that everyone of her many fans will long remember. Danny Thomas, a newcomer, is grand. For sheer beauty, both in music and in staging, this is easily the very tops. The film is actually packed with human interest and if little Margaret doesn't hold you in the palm of her hand, literally speak ing, then you do not love children. She is such a great little actress that you actually live the part with her. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. lttlM»HlllMHim>HIHMi»Htll«W11IIIIHI>ltlllllH TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY February 24 and 25 "WILDFIRE" One of the greatest of all the "horse" films was "Smoky." And while "WILDFIRE" is also filmed in Technicolor, is a grand show, it can't quite match the film "Smoky." However, it is a very close second. There is action and thrills in this one and every lover of horse flesh should be sure to see it ALSO "RENEGADE GIRL" —with Allan Curtis and Ann Savage An action-packed story of the Civil War days and particularly just after that war. Curtis, a Union officer, is sent to pick up a band of Renegades and in the band is Ann Savage. He falls tor her and after many difficulties amid plenty of action and thrills, all is well.
