This is a 39" x 55" unused Italian two-sheet poster designed by Rabbat
for the 1965 Youssef Chahine film Auliban the Seller of Jokes
written by Assi Rahbani and Mahsour Rahbani and starring Fairuz as
Rima. Plot summary: The story is set in the year 1914 in a peaceful
mountain village in Lebanon. The mayor, seeing that the population is
bored, invents a fictitious character named Rajeh; he tells stories to
villagers about the exploits of this person, who is a robber and a
murderer. One day the mayor [Nasri Shamseddine] warns the villagers
that Rajeh is heading to the village and they must beware. Two clever
men realize the mayor has been lying and decide to impersonate the
fictitious Rajeh, steal money and assault the mayor in the
dark. Eventually an old man who is actually named Rajeh arrives in the
village, amid public fears. Then it became obvious that Rajeh was
merely a seller of rings for weddings who had wanted to marry his son
to the mayor's daughter Homa (Fairuz). The two miscreants willingly go
to jail for exploiting the mayor's prank.
