This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster made by an unknown designer to
promote the 1957 Kamal El Sheikh film Love and the Death
Penalty [hob wa eedam] starring Imad Hamdi and Samira Ahmed based
on story and dialogue by Mohammad Kamel Hassan with cinematography by
Abdel Aziz Fahmy. Plot summary: Samira [Samira Ahmed] prepared to
move to her marriage home, but she was short of funds and found
herself unable to finish the job. She asked her father Abdel Hamid
[Abbas Fares] for a loan one day while he was playing cards with his
mistress Soad [Aida Halal] and her brother Morsi [Mahmoud El-Meliguy].
Samira got into a debate with her father but in anger he said "you are
not my daughter." Samira left his home shouting "it is better for
someone like that to die!" Morsi heard her say this and got the idea
of killing the father and blaming the daughter. Morsi planned the
crime carefully and invited Samira to pay a quiet visit to her father.
Then he poisoned the father and put him to sleep. Samira came in and
left her fingerprints everywhere, leaving the corpse and her handbag
behind when she left. Samira was accused of the murder. Her husband
the attorney Magdi [Imad Hamdi] saw a newspaper with bold headlines
condemning Samira and tried to get her exonerated, but was unable to
to do so and she was sentenced to death at the trial. In a happy
ending, Samira was spared execution on the morning she was scheduled
to die because of a last-minute disclosure of the real facts of the
crime in surprise testimony by the murderer's sister, Soad.
