This is a 26.75" x 38.75" Egyptian poster designed by Morteda to
promote the 92-minute Mohamed Khan color film The Drowned Woman
[al-gharqana] starring Nabila Ebeid as Warda based on screenplay and
dialogue by Mostafa Moharram and a story by Hassan Shah, with
cinematography by Mohsen Nasr. Plot summary: In a village on the
southern coast of the Sinai the pretty Bedouin woman Wafa was in
heartbreak and pain because she had become a widow to three husbands.
People were accusing her of being bad luck for men! Warda went to see
the village sorcerer, a swindler and a quack, to ask him how to break
the spell. He persuaded her to marry him and told her this would
purge the curse. She agreed to the marriage and gave birth to a
deformed midget, whom the father named Mabruk. The father attributed
miracles to him and accumulated much wealth by using simple devices to
promote superstition and quackery. Warda started supprting herself as
a dancer in a tourist village. Then Mabruk drowned while playing in
the sea in his parents' absence; the local women told the sorcerer his
wife had caused it, so he drowned her too. The sorcerer then went
back to swindling the villagers with the help of a local assistant,
who claimed Mabruk's soul had dissolved into the body of his father!
