Here is a 27.5" x 39" Egyptian poster by an unknown designer made to promote the 1958 142-minute Hussein Sedki color film Khalid ibn al-Walid starring Hussein Sedki based on a screenplay by Hussein Sedki and Hussein Helmy Al-Mohandes, dialogue by Ahmed Al-Sharbati and Abdel Aziz Salam with cinematograpy by Hesham Wadid Serri. Plot summary: Khalid was a hero among his people admired for his bravery. When he met Layli at the Akaz Market he was drawn to her because he found in her what he had not found in any other women. He decided to go to her and to ask for her hand, but before he left his tribe was suddenly defeated by the Muslim army at the Battle of Badr, the first fight between the Muslims and the polytheists. Khalid revolted against the defeat of his people and returned from his battle crowned with wreaths of victory. He asked her to marry him, but she had become a Muslim and called him to Islam. Khalid refused to change his beliefs. In Mecca he found the ones who had adopted the new faith. Even his brother had done this and was inviting him to embrace Islam. Khalid converted to Islam and Mohammad the Prophet gave him the name Seifollah. When he did this it upset the polytheists. Khaled met his beloved again, for she had come to ask him to allow her to visit her husband, whom Khalid's men had killed. Khaled tried to turn her away from her husband with money, but she refused. Khalid felt he was still in love with Layli and they decided to marry. Her murdered husband's family learned of this and Layli preferred to get out of Khalid's life rather than tell him what her husband's family had threatened to do. Khalid waged a fierce war against the liar Moseylama, defeated him, then met Fatma and won her heart. After marrying her he drove out the Persians at the head of the Muslim army. Then Fatma died, and the hero was left alone. Layli came again and was hoping she could be happy with him, but he died.
