119-minute Mohamed Abdel Gawad black-and-white film The Unlucky
One [alil ol-bakht] starring Shadia as Bolbola based on story and
dialogue by Zoheir Bakir with cinematography by Very Varkash. Plot
summary: Hussein [Kamal Al-Shennawi], the son of Sheikh Abdel Rahman,
went to Alexandria to study. There he met a singer and dancer named
Bolbola [Shadia]. He fell in love with her and was about to marry
her. Bolbola's cousin Elham [Zomorda] met Hussein during a dance and
later contrived to meet with him privately, where she discouraged him
from marrying Bolbola because she was a girl with a past. She told
him some disturbing lies about Bolbola, so for the moment Hussein gave
up on her. A little while later Hussein's father lost his wealth and
died and Elham became enamored of Hussein's cousin Monir [Mahmoud
El-Meliguy]. She failed with this love, which caused her to collapse
psychologically. She was taken to a mental hospital and Hussein had
no choice but to leave Alexandria for Sudan to forget his pain.
Bolbola was shocked by Hussein's trip and drowned herself. Hussein
returned to Egypt after a few years with a great longing to see
Bolbola. He was heartbroken when he learned she had died; then he met
Bolbola's daughter [Shadia] and congratulated her on her engagement
when he was told about it.
