No Poetry Accepted. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 1948. IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa \ THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY MARCH 25, 26 and 27 ABBOTT and COSTELLO iu— "BUCK PRIVATES" Back in early 1942 this comedy,] hit was standing them in line; everywhere. Not in the large: towns as much as in the small' ones. The film has never played here because of the mess of poor films that had to be bought in order to get this great comedy. pair. Now it is possible to secure this film without having to take the poor ones. In the cast are also Lee Bowman, The An- ,< drews Sisters, Alan Curtis and j many others. This pair of nits j 1 are a scream and are rated even! higher than Laurel and Hardy.; "BUCK PRIVATES" is considered, after six years, the funniest comedy Abbott and Costello ever •turned out. If you haven't seen this one, be sure to attend its showing here. ALSO TWO FIXE TECHNICOLOR SH«RT SUBJECTS SUNDAY - MONDAY MARCH 28 and 29 "THAT HAGEN GIRL" —frith Shirley Temple, Ronald Reagan. Rory Calhoun, Lois Maxwell and Dorothy Peterson Shirley was great in her recent adolescent role in '"The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" and here she is again in a more mature role of a girl who comes from the other side of the tracks. It is the story of the cruelty and* harm of small town gossipers who do their best to ruin the life of a small town girl. Ronald Reagan is superb and when he gets up and tells off a bunch of the so-called socially elite you want to stand up and cheer. There is a great performance given by Temple and Heagan and one that is gripping and compelling. ALSO FREDDIE MARTIN and his great band in a 15- aainute Musical Revue that is worth the price of admission. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. ititnt >HMiiiimiiniiitmimi»<HMHimiitiiHitt TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY MARCH 30 and 31 "NEWS HOUNDS" —with the Dead-End Kids which means Leo Gorcey and Hauntz Hull and Company The Kids are popular with all types of audiences and the films they appear in are full of action and comedy. This one is packed •with action. ALSO ZANE GREY'S— "WANDERER OF THE WASTELANDS" —with Bill Williams and Barbara Hale These Zane Grey films top them all because of the plausibility of the stories. Many ot the stories are so far-fetched that even the imagination can not be stretched to cover them but not so with the Zane Grey novels. Tuesday & Wednesday — are — CASH NIGHTS ! jjuliss.
