Pictured is an Egyptian promotional poster designed by Gasour and
Anise for the 1983 125-minute Nader Galal color musical Five Doors
Bar [khamsa bab] based on the 1963 Billy Wilder film Irma La
Douce, with screenplay and dialogue by Sharif Al-Minbawy and
cinematography by Ibrahim Saleh. Plot summary: In the 1940s Kollu
Mashi (Fouad El Mohandes) owned a bar in the Ezbekia neighborhood
where prostitution was allowed. The singer Tragy (Nadia El Guindy)
worked with the pimp Abbas (Youssef Eid), with whom she divided her
daily take. He protected her and a number of other girls of the night
in an area where the police would take bribes in exchange for ignoring
what was going on. The policeman Mansour (Adel Imam) was transferred
to the neighborhood and all attempts to bribe him, as had been done
with his predecessors, failed. One night he took everyone to the
police station, but Abbas planted drugs in his room and he was fired.
Mansour went back to working as a tough guy and took over the
neighborhood. He fell in love with Tragy, tried to convince her to
repent and tried to get money for her so she could live in better
conditions. He impersonated a wealthy man, then married her after she
repented; Abbas was arrested. This film was initially banned in Egypt.
