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.
