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.
