This is an undated rerelease promotional poster designed by Abdul Ghani for the 1949 100-minute Anwar Wagdi black-and-white film The Flirtation of Girls starring Naguib Al Rihani with screenplay by Anwar Wagdi, dialogue by Naguib Al Rihani and Badi Kheiri and cinematography by Abdelhalim Nasr. Plot summary: Hamam (Naguib Al Rihani) was an Arabic language teacher suffering from persistent and almost laughable bad luck and misfortune. Hamam got the opportunity to give lessons to Laila (Laila Mourad), the daughter of a rich pasha who had failed Arabic, and he fell in love with her. He knew she was the victim of a playboy (Mahmoud El-Meliguy). Hamam went out with her one night, not realizing she was going to meet the boy at a cabaret. The girl went inside and Hamam became worred about her and asked a dashing pilot (Anwar Wagdi) to help him get her out. The officer was dazzled by Laila's beauty and stayed with them, although Hamam and Laila tried to get rid of him. They hid in the home of the famous artist Youssef Wahby (as himself). The artist spoke warmly to the girl and while speaking with Hamam he realized he was in love with Laila while she had no feelings for him and advised him to let her go if he loved her. When they left the home of Youssef Wahby they found the officer waiting for them. Love glowed between the girl and the pilot, but there were tears of sadness and joy in the eyes of Hamam. This film is analyzed in considerable depth in "The Golden Age before the Golden Age: Commercial Egyptian Cinema before the 1960s" by Walter Armbrust in Mass Mediations: New Approaches to Popular Culture in the Middle East and Beyond ed. Walter Armbrust, University of California Press, 2000. It is on film critic Ahmad Al-Hadari's 2007 list of the 100 most important Egyptian films.
