This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian one-sheet poster for the 1971 Henry
Barakat 92-minute color film Love and Position [al-khayt
al-rafi'] based on story and dialogue by Ihsan Abd al-Qudus,
screenplay by Youssef Francis and starring Faten Hamama as Mona. Plot
summary: Mona was a poor girl who had a job as a low-level bank
employee and supported her family. Under pressure from her father's
illness and urging from her mother to increase her income, she formed
a relationship with an elderly wealthy lover. An engineer friend
named Adel [Mahmoud Yassine] who also worked at the company owned by
her lover Abdo [Salah Nazmi] told her he loved her. By this time Mona
was no longer a poor girl. She responded emotionally as a prosperous
woman who was in a position to be her new lover's patron and guide.
Mona persuaded Adel to quit his job with Abdo and start an independent
company with support from his mentor Hosny [Imad Hamdi]. Although
Love and Position is the film's official English title, the
Arabic title literally means The Slender Thread; the tag line
at the top of the poster, quoting the original story by Ihsan Abdel
Qudus, translates as "There is a slender thread between love and the
instinct to acquire."
