This is a 27" x 39" undated rerelease Egyptian promotional poster
designed by Wael for the 1968 127-minute black-and-white Abbas Kamel
film I Am the Doctor [ana al-doktor] starring Farid Shawqi with
screenplay and dialogue by Abbas Kamel and cinematography by Adel
Abdel Azim. The film tells a tale of Egyptian medical quackery and
chicanery. Plot summary: Ibrahim [Farid Shawqi] was a nurse who
impersonated a doctor so he could work in Dr. Sami's clinic. He
bought the clinic to move it to a village in upper Egypt with his
former colleague Karim [Adel Imam] and Nadia, [Nelly] whom he had met
while she was working as a waitress in a cafeteria. Working as a
physician he accumulated enormous wealth by convincing the healthy
people in the village that they were sick. He also had a commission
from the village pharmacy for charging each patient exhorbitant prices
for medicines. Ibrahim and Nadia decided to marry and he told her the
truth about what he had been doing, but she still loved him. Then the
police arrested him in Alexandria just as the opening of a new
hospital was being celebrated.
