Ghani to promote the 1962 124-minute Kamal El Sheikh black-and-white
film Chased by the Dogs [al-liss wal-kelab] starring Shadia and
Shukry Sarhan based on a story by Naguib Mahfouz with screenplay by
Sabry Ezzat, dialogue by Ali El Zorkani and cinematography by Kamal
Korayem. Plot summary: Said Mahran [Shukry Sarhan] worked as a house
servant in a student's home. Because of his mother's illness he had
to steal a watch from a student. Raouf Alwan [Kamal al-Shennawi] got
involved, tried to save him and took him as a protege in crime. Said
became a big thief. His assistant Alish [Zein El-Ashmawy] informed on
him so he would be free to marry his wife Nabawiya. When Said Mahran
got out of prison his goal was to take revenge against Alish and
Nabawiya, but he killed some innocent people instead by blindly
shooting at window silhouettes, because Alish and Nabawiya had fled
their home. Said ran away and became a fugitive. Raouf, who had
become a famous journalist, denounced Said in newspaper articles,
turning public opinion against him. Said confessed what he had done
to his former lover Nour [Shadia] and lived in her house. He also
sought solace with a Sufi sheikh but found no relief. Although Nour
tried help him, the police found his hiding place and killed him on a
mountain during a chase.
According to film critic Sa'ad al-Din Tawfiq this is one of the top
100 Egyptian films. The title is literally translated as The Thief and the Dogs.
