This an Egyptian 27" x 39" one-sheet poster designed by Amal and
Gasour for the 1981 Mohamed Khan film Dinner Date based on a
story by Mohammed Khan with screenplay and dialogue by Bachir El Dik
and Starring Soad Hosny (1943 - 2001) as Nawal. The film is set in
Alexandria Egypt; the late Ahmed Zaki (1949-2005) plays the part of
hairdresser Shokri, who falls in love with Nawal. Nawal is oppressed
by her husband Ezzat Abul-Rous [Hussein Fahmy]. She catches him with
another woman and demands a divorce on the spot, but he refuses.
Nawal despairs and eventually divorces Ezzat anyway, then Marries
Shokri. Ezzat has Shokri killed to get revenge. Nawal first learns
of Shokri's death when she is called to a morgue to identify his
corpse. In the final "dinner date" scene Nawal pretends to be
resigned to resuming life with Ezzat, but she serves poisoned food.
Both of them eat it and presumably die, but the film only shows a sad
conversation in which the two seem to know this is their last
meal. Dinner Date was remade in the UK in 1985
as Claudia (aka Claudia's Story) by Anwar Kawadri,
starring Deborah Raffin.
