This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Ahmed Fouad for the 1981 Ashraf Fahmy film The Devil Preaches based on a story by Naguib Mahfouz and starring Farid Shawqi as Al-Dinari. Plot summary: The dominant district thug Al-Dinari hired laundry worker Shata al-Hagari [Nour El-Sherif] to conduct surveillance on his fiancee Wedad [Nabila Ebeid]. Shata did not like this job but he liked Wedad and they decided to marry. After they were married Shata and Wedad lived under the protection of Al-Shebli, [Adel Adham] the dominant thug in the Al-Atouf district, who was hostile to Al-Dinari. Al-Shebli wanted Wedad and he raped her in front of Shata. He said his primary motivation for doing this was to get revenge against Al-Dinari. Shata returned with Wedad to his family, who knew what had happened to him. He asked Al-Dinari to set a time for him to meet Al-Shebli in a fight. Shata had advised staying away from his wife because she was about to have a baby but Al-Shebli had refused. Shata resolved to take revenge; when the fight took place Shata killed Al-Shebli, but he was then killed almost immediately by one of Al-Shebli's henchmen. Wedad had her baby the same day and decided to move to another place with her son. Al-Dinari was sad about what had happened despite the district celebration of his victory over his enemy.
