HATIONAL€DITORIAI_ "^'°WAPRESys 1948 WEDNESDAY. APRIL 7, 1948. IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY APRIL 8, 9 and 10 "BAD LANDS OF DAKOTA" with Robert Stack. Anne Rutherford, Richard Dix, Frances Farmer and Broderick Crawford Not for nearly two and a half months have we been able to secure as fine a "Western*' as this one. Running time is 85 minutes, and with a cast of excellent performers here is fine out of doors entertainment. This is not a new film, in fact it was released in 1942 but it has never played at the Iris. As an Extra Added Attraction yon may see Laurel and Hardy in a 27 minute comedy entitled "CHICKENS COME HOME TO ROOST" SUNDAY - MONDAY APRIL 11 and 12 "THIS TIME FOR KEEPS" Filmed in Technicolor with Esther Williams, Johnny Johnstone and Xavier Cugat and his Band PLCS what seems to be all the beautiful girls in Hollywood By this time it is pretty well known that new equipment at the Iris makes Technicolor something "out of this world" as far as vividness and beauty are concerned. The Water Ballet scenes are exceptionally beautiful. The music and fine cast makes "THIS TIME FOR KEEPS" something to see. There are those who will tell you that this film is even better than "My Wild Irish Rose" and that is a strong statement. There is a grand love story here, too, and Esther Williams proves that she can act as well as she can swim. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY APRIL 13 and 14 LAUREL AND HARDY in— "BLOCKHEADS" A fine 70 minute side-splitting comedy. And we mean sidesplitting without any doubt. . . . What a pity these two comedians have left the screen so there is nothing left for showing but some of their older films. This one, released in 1942, is like the others, doing business second to Hope and Crosby. ALSO "RIDING DOWN THE TRAIL" —with Jimmy Wakejy and 'Lasses White The Wakely series are second only to Autry and Rogers in popularity. There is always music and song with plenty of action thrown in.
