This is a 33.5" x 45" Egyptian poster designed by Hassan Mazhar Gasour for the 1954 Helmy Rafla film Abu Dahab based on story and screenplay by Zoheir Bakir, dialogue by El Sayed Bedeir and starring Hoda Soltan. Plot summary: Hassan Bar'i [Zaki al-Harami] was the gangleader in a narcotics smuggling and distribution company operating behind a front company for the distribution of medical supplies. He met Amina Hassan [Qowat al-Qoloub], got her pregnant and then refused to marry her, so she tried to shoot him. However Sabiet al-Atara [Mahmoud El-Meliguy] killed him instead. Sabiet nominated his colleague Abu Dahab [Farid Shawqi] to replace Bar'i but he refused to do it and recommened al-Akta', [Mohamed Sabih] one of al-'Atara's backers, to run the election; they made arrangements for al-Atara to win. However the arrangements failed and and Abu Dahab won. Abu Dahab and al-Atara were outwardly friends but they competed for the love of the singer Ehsan [Hoda Soltan], who preferred and eventually married Abu Dahab. Abu Dahab was then reported, arrested for smuggling and given a seven-year prison sentence.
