IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY AUGUST 19, 20 and 21 "A FUSSING, A FEUDING AND A FIGHTING" —with Marjory Main and Percy Kilbride These two people were the real hit of that grand film. "The Egg and I." Now they are together again in this side-splitting hillbilly comedy. They get mixed up in a Kentucky feud and things really happen — but fast. Comedy all the way thru. The film is really a boxoffice winner as the public is hungry for good comedies like this one. ALSO Bob Wills & his Texas Playboys in a twenty minute musical revue entitled— "Frontier Frolics" rmntnmmniuMUMimjjtit^jmit SUNDAY - MONDAY AUGUST 22 and 23 "THE BLANDINGS BUILD THEIR DREAM HOUSE" •—with Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, and Melvyn Doujlas After slaving and saving for years, the Blandings dream of a place in the country where they hope to have a little elbow room. Like many people, they had to have a place where Washington *lept or Grant changed his boots. So they buy an old ramshackle house. By the time they get the well dug they have assorted heart aches, back aches and mishaps and laughs. All these things are crowded into this fine film. If there has ever been a film true to life this is it. Anyone who has attempted to Sx up an old home or even built a new one will get many a laugh out of this one. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P.
