Mr. and Mrs. Fred Tuttle of Joliet, Illinois were weekend visitors with his mother, Mrs. Anna TutUe, and attended the Big-Four, '-Fair. _ . , : IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY September 9, 10 and 11 "THE RETURN OF WILDFIRE" —Richard Arlen, Patricia Morrison, Mary Beth Hughes and Wildfire By a terrific margin this film transcends any "Western" turned out this year. In every way ft rates right up there with "Smoky" and "Red Stallion." The story is plausible and the characters fine and the plot is believeable. Not only is the plot believeable but there are many new twists that add to the story- It is packed with action and thrills. Filmed in Sepia-brown tint, here is the really Grade A entertainment. And at the box- offices of the average small theater this is the "tops." iinmmmm SUNDAY - MONDAY September 12 and 13 "SUMMER HOLIDAY" —-with Mickey Rooney, Gloria De Haven, Butch Jenkins and Frank Morgan Filmed in Technicolor, this comedy with music is just about the last word in entertainment. There are many popular tunes in it Lots of comedy with little Butch Jenkins in it, too. Gloria De Haven, as Mickey's childhood sweetheart, is outstandingly attractive. Marilyn Maxwell, as a burlesque o.ueen who tries to take • Mickey from Gloria, is gorgeous even though her part is not too pleasant. The Technicolor never has been more beautiful. This, too, is a box- office winner. ALSO A Fine Band Act With JOE BEICHMAX and his BAND SUNDAY SLATTNEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY September 14 and 15 "BLOND SAVAGE" —with Lief Erickson and Gale Sherwood This one isn't 'quite another Tarzan film, but it doesn't miss it very far in the way of excitement and action-packed jungle stuff. ALSO "THE ARIZONA RANGER" A Zane Grey "Western" with Tim Holt and Ann Leslie It just seems to me that regardless of who plays in the cast the Zane Grey stories are more exciting, more plausible, and make better film entertainment than any other pictures. This one is very, very good. Tuesday & Wednesday — are — CASH NIGHTS! Mr. and Mrs. Harland Troy of Minneapolis, Minnesota are visiting this week in the O. J. Nyberg and AUard Nyberg homes.

Those who love "horse" pictures, and that is almost everybody, should not fail to see "The Return Of Wildfire" at the Iris Thursday. Friday and Saturday. September 9. 10 and 11. It is not to be compared to the run of the mill "western." In fact you can say that it rates with "Smoky" and "Red Stallion." Not very often it is possible these days to secure a first run showing of any film let alone an outstanding "horse" picture like this one. Filmed in Sepia, brown tone, the film is extra special in scenic beauty. Patricia Morrison, Mary Beth Hughes, and Richard Arlen are the players but is that splendid horse "Wildfire" that is the "star." You will not want to miss "Summer Holiday" in technicolor with Mickey Rooney, Gloria De Haven, Marilyn Maxwell, Butch Jenkins, and Frank Morgan. This comedy with music is excellent entertainment and Rooney "scores" again with a swell performance. See it Sunday or Monday September 12 or 13. Many are beginning to realize that there is no better place to enjoy technicolor films than right here in Postville. Modern equipment is definitely the answer. Lamps that develop 50 amperes on the film and through lenses that are the last word in optical perfection give beauty to technicolor that is nothing short of breath taking. Iris Theater Management.
