This is an undated rerelease poster designed by Abdel Rahman for the
1949 Helmy Rafla 110-minute black-and-white film Fatma, Marika and
Rachel [fatma wa marika wa rachel] starring Muhammad Fawzi based on
the 1778 play The Marriage of Figaro by Pierre-Augustin Caron de
Beaumarchais, with story, screenplay and dialogue by Abu Seoud
El-Ibiary and cinematograpy by Bruno Salvi. Plot summary: A wealthy
young playboy who loved virgins to obtain pleasure with them met a
Jewish girl named Rachel. He told her his name was Youssef and that
he was a practicing member of her religion. Her father sent her with
him to her tailor named Marika to pay her for the dresses account.
Youssef met Marika. He liked her and learned she was of Greek
extraction. He told her he was also of Greek extraction and
established a relationship with her; then Rachel learned about it and
quarreled with Marika. Youssef fled this situation while his rural
father sent him a request that he marry Fatma, the daughter of his
friend, who was living with her uncle in Cairo and doing nothing but
depriving him of his inheritance. The boy and his friend planned to
go together to Fatma and claim that the friend was the groom so she
would be disgusted with both of them. Fatma made the same plan so she
could get rid of this miserable groom. She impersonated her maid and
said she was refusing the groom, while the boy refused the bride.
After a few laughable exchanges the boy told his father he would marry
the girl he loved and the girl told her father she would marry the one
she loved. The father objected, but when the truth became clear,
everyone realized the girl he loved was Fatma and the boy Fatma loved
was the one who was the candidate for marriage with her. They married
with the consent of the family and the wealth gave him a reason to
live with his wife Fatma.
