No Poetry Accepted. WEDNESDAY, ."MARCH IT, 1948. IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY MARCH IS, 19 and 20 "THE SPOILERS" —with John Wayne and Marlene Dietrich Back it{ 1942 this Rex Beach story \vas one of the better films of that year. This is a story of Alaska, and it"s packed with action. The fight between Randy Scott and John Wayne is one of the most exciting and thrilling in many years. This was a Universal Picture and has never played in the Iris. If you saw it you did not see it in Postville. For ninety minutes of action and thrills nothing produced since world war II compares with it. Patrons prove that these older films "are what they enjoy most..' Attendance on them in every instance is higher than the newer film^. SUNDAY - MONDAY MARCH 21 and 22 "THE BACHELOR AND THE BOBBY-SOXER" —With Carey Grant. Myrna Loy ami Shirley Temple Once in a while, and strange as it seems, some producer gets it into his head to turn out a comedy instead of heavy murder dramas, and the man that produced this one did a fine job because it has been doing a grand business. This is the type of film that seems to hit every one. It's funny and it's clean, and the bobby soxers love it and so do ihe oldsters. It has done so very well everywhere it has played. It is coming to the Iris a little late, but rather than pass it up on that account it was decided to play it regardless. There should be in this immediate vicinity enough people to make it •worth playing. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. —MMlHilitiiiiiiiiiiiiMiimmnMiti^intiiiinitiiitiiii TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY MARCH 23 and 24 "LOST HONEYMOON" —with Franchot Tone and Janet Greer Another "oldie" in as much as the film is about a year old. But in spite of that it is well worth your time. It is a swell comedy with a good cast and two theaters within 40 miles of Postville have already played it on a Sunday. This is a good comedy. ALSO "RAINBOW OVER THE ROCKIES" —with Jimmy Wakely With some fans it is Roy Rogers, with others it's Autry—but after looking them all over there really isn't much difference in any of them if you are looking for an action packed film. And this boy Wakely is getting to be mighty popular with mosf of the "Westerns" fans. Tuesday & Wednesday — are — CASH NIGHTS!
