movie poster designed by Marcel for the 1962 Salah Abouseif
film Letter from an Unknown Woman starring Farid Al Atrache as
Ahmed Sameh. Plot summary: The musician Ahmed Sameh received a letter
on the evening of his birthday. He was used to receiving flowers every
birthday but this time he was reading a letter from a woman he did not
know. Her name was Amal [Lobna Abdel Aziz] and she lived in front of
him in his old home. She loved him without him knowing about it; she
seldom saw him or had any reason to go into his home, but she knew his
servant Ibrahim. However her mother had to get married and moved to
another city. From time to time Amal looked at the home of her
beloved who did not know her. One day he stopped his car for her,
took her to his home and she became pregnant by him, but he forgot her
because she was just another girl to him. He lived the life of a
musician. Amal worked in an office. The owner of the office offered
to marry her but he knew there was another man in her life so he left
her alone. Amal met her beloved one night but he did not remember
her. He avoided her son but one day the son was hurt in a collision
with a bus. The doctor said the type of blood the injured boy needed
was rare. Amal was obliged to send her letter to Ahmed Sami, who came
to the hospital on the evening of his birthday. He gave the blood to
his son and married Amal after he realized how long she had loved him.
This film was directed by Salah Abouseif based on the 1922 novella of
the same title by Stefan Zweig, which was also the basis for a 1948
movie with the same title starring Joan Fontaine.
