Kamel Morsi black-and-white film The Lady of the House [sett
al-beyt] starring Faten Hamama based on story and dialogue by Abu
Seoud El-Ibiary and screenplay by Ahmed Kamel Morsi and Henry Barakat,
with cinematography by Giulio De Luca. The film was produced and
distributed by Lotus Films (Asia).Plot summary: Elham [Faten Hamama]
marries Nabil [Imad Hamdi] and moves with him to his mother's house.
Problems arise there between Elham and her mother-in-law [Zeinab
Sedky]. Nabil's mother is threatened by Elham who seems to be more the
"lady of the house" than she is. Because of this antagonism--and
after discovering that Elham might be sterile--the mother-in-law tries
to convince her son to marry another woman, Madiha [Mona].Elham
decides to leave the house, but on her way out she stumbles on a
railroad track and is taken to the hospital. The doctor tells Nabil
that Elham was pregnant when she fell and had a miscarriage. Nabil is
devastated and blames his mother. The mother apologizes to Elham and
asks for forgiveness.
