Pictured is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Mahmoud Atef to promote the 1961 137-minute Salah Abouseif black-and-white film Hope against Hope [la tutfi al-shams] starring Faten Hamama based on story and dialogue by Ihsan Abd al-Qudus, screenplay by Lucien Lambert and cinematography by Abdelhalim Nasr. Plot summary: This film is set in the time of the Tripartite Aggression; it tells the story of an aristocratic family that has lost its breadwinner. The oldest son Ahmed [Shukry Sarhan] enlists in the Egyptian army and is shown in desert military action, but in his civilian life he slowly develops a relationship with the a woman named Shahira [Nadia Lutfi], which ends in marriage after a few relatively minor complications. The daughter Layla [Faten Hamama] falls in love with her piano teacher [Imad Hamdi], who is married. This relationship is fraught with difficult moral and social problems that are never resolved. The younger son Mamdouh [Ahmed Ramzi] is more concerned with the practical matter of earning a livelihood; he serves a vehicle for showing how class and social issues in Egypt can disrupt productive economic activity.
