This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Moaty and Nabil for the 1971 Mohamed Abdel Aziz, Ashraf Fahmy and Madkour Sabet film Forbidden Pictures [suwwar mamnu'a] starring Magda El-Khatib as Hanna. The film tells three stories. The first story is Forbidden [mamnu'] directed by Mohamed Abdel Aziz and starring Magda El-Khatib as Hanna. Plot summary: A young man [Nour El-Sherif] worked as a waiter in a restaurant with aspirations to marry into a higher social class so he would be able to invite his friends to dinner at that restaurant. The second story is Used to Be [kan] directed by Ashraf Fahmy and starring Nabila Ebeid, Hamdy Ahmed, El Sayed Radi, and Ali al-Sherif. Hasuna [Hamdy Ahmed], a carpenter in a poor neighborhood, longs to meet Sania [Nabila Ebeid], a film actress from his area who is making a film on his street. Naguib Mahfouz wrote the third story, titled Sura [photo] directed by Madkour Sabet, cinematography by Hassan Abdel Fattah and starring Mahmoud El-Meliguy, Mahmoud Yassine, Wahid Ezzat, Fatheia Shahin and Mohi Ismail. Plot summary for sura: The police were looking for the body of a woman at the foot of the pyramids. Her picture was published in a newspaper. A number of people thought the woman in the photo looked familiar. A mother thought she was her daughter who had left her village to work in Cairo; one gentleman thought she was the maid he used to flirt with. For a director she was the mistress who had attacked him and fled. She was a different woman with a different name in each home and for each man. The investigator tried in vain to find the truth.
