This is an original 12" x 14.5" Egyptian lobby card for the 1946
film Love among the Elders written and directed by Mohammad
Abdel Gawad, dialogue by Youssef Gohar and starring Fatma Rouchdi as
Ahlam. Plot summary: Mokhtar [Mansi Fahmi] was a learned man and a
thinker who did not acknowledge the authority of women. He maintained
a barrier in his relations with them, but then a woman named Ahlam
conquered his heart and he changed his mind. His friend and student
Rauf [Yehia Chahine] also loved Ahlam, who was living with Mokhtar at
the time to escape the authority of her criminal father after Mokhtar
had taken her in to help her recover from an attempted suicide.
Mokhtar offered to marry her to protect her from her father, without
knowing Rauf's feelings about her and even though she did not love
him. After they had an argument Ahlam ran away with Rauf but then
went back to Mokhtar because she felt guilty. She discovered he had
gone blind and become more violent and cruel than ever. He threatened
to kill himself if she left him. Ahlam shot herself but survived;
Mokhtar then sacrificed his love for her so she could marry Rauf.
