This is a 27" x 39" undated rerelease Egyptian poster designed by an unknown artist to promote the 1945 103-minute Anwar Wagdi black-and-white musical Leila Daughter of the Poor [leila bint al-foqara] starring Laila Mourad as Leila based on a story by Anwar Wagdi with screenplay by Kamal Salim and dialogue by Badei Khayri. Cinematography was by Mohamed Abdel Azim. Plot summary: Leila was a poor girl living in the Seyyeda Zeinab district of Cairo. A lady invited her to her mansion and introduced her to Officer Wahid Mokhtar [Anwar Wagdi]. Leila was impressed by the mansion and its ceremonies and soon became outgoing and cheerful. Wahid was drawn to Leila and asked her alleged father Darwish Basha [Bechara Wakim] for her hand in marriage. Then he learned Darwish Basha was not really her father. Wahid thought Leila had deceived him; he went to see her in Seyyeda Zeinab and cancelled the marriage offer. After that Wahid, who still loved Leila, met Darwish Basha and told him what had happened. Darwish Basha advised Wahid to apologize to Leila, which he did. Darwish Basha then pledged he would leave his wealth to Leila and asked Wahid's father to arrange for Wahid to marry her. The reason the Basha had left his wealth to Leila became clear to all those who had been invited to the wedding when her origins became known. Leila left the wedding in despair, but Wahid persuaded his father to move the wedding party to Seyyeda Zeinab, where the proceedings were completed.
