black-and-white film Leila Daughter of the Poor [leila bint
al-foqara] starring Laila Mourad 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 neighborhood. A lady invited
her to her palace and introduced her to Officer Wahid. Leila was
impressed by the palace and its ceremonies, and after a time she
became vivacious. Wahid was drawn to Leila and asked her alleged
father Darwish Basha for her hand in marriage. He discovered Darwish
Basha was not really her father. Wahid thought Leila had deceived
him and 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 committed to leaving his
wealth to Leila and asked Wahid's father to arrange for Wahid to marry
Leila. The secret of why the Basha had given 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 and Wahid
persuaded his father to move the wedding party to Seyyeda Zeinab,
where the proceedings were completed.
