This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian one-sheet poster designed by Ahmed Fouad for the 1970 Burgess Meredith film The Third Eye AKA The Yin and Yang of Mr. Go based on a story by Joseph Zucchero and Alvin Ostroff, screenplay by Burgess Meredith and starring James Mason as Y.Y. Go. I get a lot of ideas what films to watch from these old Egyptian posters. This film can still be had on DVD at very cheap prices because it seems to be considered virtually worthless by the people who have it for sale. There are some interesting things. It was the acting debut for Jeff Bridges and the first and only directing attempt by Burgess Meredith. The combination of extreme badness in plot, music and direction plus an outstanding cast (also including Broderick Crawford and James Mason) inspired over 20 people to write reviews of it on IMDB. Plot summary: there is a living Buddha out there somewhere (the Buddha is also the film's narrator) who decides to enlighten the evil Mr. Go [James Mason] with a beam of light from his belly. This benevolent act is something the Buddha is able to do once every 50 years in the 5th month. Once this has been done, the evil Mr. Go is filled with the virtues of enlightenment and decides to make available to suffering humanity a miracle laser beam that neutralizes all nuclear weapons and makes nuclear war impossible! The poster was printed by Anwar printers.

This film is best known by the title The Yin and the Yang of Mr. Go, but the title on the poster is The Third Eye.
