This is a 27" x 39" undated rerelease Egyptian film poster designed by Moaty to promote the 1979 128-minute Ahmed Fouad color film Ragab on a Hot Tin Roof [ragab fou' safeeh sakhen] starring Adel Imam based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Ebrahim Maher with cinematography by Essam Farid. Plot summary: The people in Ragab's [Adel Imam] village pooled their money to buy a plow and sent him to Cairo to buy it. As soon as he got there he met Bolbol, [Sa'eed Saleh] a professional thief, who stole the money the people of Ragab's village had given him, then disappeared in the Cairo crowds. Ragab went looking for him. He ended up in a nightclub, where he met Bobbol's friend Eglal [Nahed Sherif], the owner of a nighclub. Bolbol had seen Ragab and fled with the money. When Ragab found him he claimed to have lost all the money gambling. Ragab tried to find work. When that failed he asked Bolbol to teach him how to gamble. After he learned how to do this he won a lot of money, but one of the ones who lost money to him went after him with the intent of killing him; Bolbol tried to defend Ragab and suffered a few stab wounds. The police intervened and arrested all of them. Ragab did not return to his village. After his release he took a job in Cairo looking for newcomers from rural areas and upper Egypt so he could swindle them.

In Egypt Today September 2004 Sherif Awad said of this film: "Comedian Adel Imam made cinema history with Ragab Fouk Safeeh Sakhen ([Ragab on a Hot Tin Roof], 1979). The film broke all previous box-office records and spent 37 weeks in theaters. Throughout the past two decades, he has been the uncontested king of the box office, churning out roles in every conceivable genre. Now in his fifties, Imam is still going strong."
