This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Walid Wahig for the
1970 Hassan Al Imam film Dalal, the Egyptian based on a Naguib
Mahfouz adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's 1899 novel al-ba'th
(Resurrection) [voskrecenye/Воскресение]. This was Tolstoy's last
novel. It was produced in several other film adapations, most notably
the 1934 production by Samuel Goldwyn of Rouben Mamoulian's We Live
Again starring Fredric March and Anna Stein. Plot Summary: The
orphan girl Atiyat [Magda El-Khatib] grew up in an old mansion with
the sons of the current owner (Fouad Bey's aunt) until the owner threw
her out after discovering she had lost her virginity, not knowing that
Fouad Bey himself [Hussein Fahmy] had been responsible. Atiyat tried
to do the honorable thing. She took a job at a dye factory where she
met Mohammad, [Salah Kabil] who loved her and wanted to marry her.
Things did not go well for her there however; she quit working at the
factory and went to work as a dancer for Fatma Al-Falali [Hoda
Soltan]. Years later while she was working there she was accused of
murder. Fouad Ahmad was a judge on the court that sentenced her to 15
years in prison, but something moved inside Fouad Bey causing him to
suffer pangs of remorse. He resigned so he could mount a defense for
Atiyat; after much effort collecting judicial papers he was able to
get her exonerated. He thought he could now make amends for the past
and marry her, but she turned him down and married Mohammad back at
the dye factory.
