Pictured is a 27" x 39" Egyptian promotional poster for the 1983
125-minute Nader Galal color film Five Doors Bar [khamsa bab] based on
the 1963 Billy Wilder film Irma La Douce, with screenplay and
dialogue by Sharif Al-Minbawy and cinematography by Ibrahim
Saleh. Plot summary: In the 1940s Kollu Mashi (Fouad El Mohandes)
owned a bar in the Ezbekia neighborhood where prostitution was
allowed. The singer Tragy (Nadia El Guindy) worked with the pimp
Abbas (Youssef Eid), with whom she divided her daily take. He
protected her and a number of other girls of the night in an area
where the police would take bribes in exchange for ignoring what was
going on. The policeman Mansour (Adel Imam) was transferred to the
neighborhood and all attempts to bribe him, as had been done with his
predecessors, failed. One night he took everyone to the police
station, but Abbas planted drugs in his room and he was fired.
Mansour went back to working as a tough guy and took over the
neighborhood. He fell in love with Tragy, tried to convince her to
repent and tried to get money for her so she could live in better
conditions. He impersonated a wealthy man, then married her after she
repented; Abbas was arrested. This film was initially banned in Egypt.
