IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY JULY 29, 30 and 31 "BLACK BART" —with Yvonne DeCarlo. Jeffrey Lynn and Dan Duryea Another big Technicolor Western that is jam-packed with action and thrills and the scenic backgrounds are out of this world. The out of door shots were taken in the Mojave Desert and the Sierra Madre foothills. "BLACK BART" was a once- famous outlaw of Arizona and New Mexico history and was as famous in those states as the James Boys were in the middle west iiMtitititintm nnniMiiiHHMununn SUNDAY - MONDAY AUGUST 1 and 2 "THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES" —with Abbott and Costello There is no sense nor reason in the antics of this crazy pair, yet boxoffice records for the entire nation show these two boys to be the absolute tops in popularity among the screen's comedians.

Business was swell. Here is the sequel to that one. Plenty of action in this fine film. ALSO "LITTLE MISS BIG" —with Fay Holden and Little Beverly Simmons Here is what the film industry terms a "sleeper."
