IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY MAY 27, 2S and 29 "GOOD NEWS" From the musical comedy which was a terrific hit shortly before World War II In the cast are June Allyson. Peter Lawford, Joan McCracken and Ray MacDonald For sheer beauty of setting, this grand Technicolor musical cannot be beaten. And what a show for all ages! With its college atmosphere as a background plus fine toe-tingling tunes and a fine, down-to-earth story, this is just about the "tops." The youngsters in the cast are as refreshing as a breath of spring. What a grand bunch of performers they are! The Technicolor is beautiful beyond description. "GOOD NEWS" is EVERYBODY'S type of show. SUNDAY - MONDAY MAY 30 and 31 "IF WINTER COMES" with Walter Pidgeon, Deborrah Kerr, Angela Lansbury, Binnie Barnes, Janet Leigh and Dame Whitty This is one for those who like drama at its best. And there are many in this community that do. The performances of every member of the cast are outstanding. The story is full of pathos. Walter Pidgeon gives you a job that even excells his work in '"Mrs. Miniver." There is a touch of comedy here and there to offset the tense dramatic scenes. To tell you the story would spoil your enjoyment of the film. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY JUNE 1 and 2 "SOMETHING IN THE WIND" —with Deanna Dnrbin and Donald O'Connor Music and comedy, with the accent on comedy—this one is a high class film in every sense of the word. Running nearly one hour and a half, the film is worthy of a single billing in any theater—anywhere! — BUT WITH — "UNDER THE TONTO RIM" A fine Zane Grey Story yon get more for your money than yon have ever received on a "Cash Nijbt." There is no question but what a "boner" was pulled when the film "SOMETHING IS THE WIND" was booked on a midweek. Take advantage of the mistake and really see yourself A BARGAIN.
