We have here a 27" x 29" Egyptian poster designed by Al-Khad to
promote the 1986 Hossam El-Din Mostafa 118-minute color film The
Racketeers [al-harafish] starring Mahmoud Yassine based on a story
by Naguib Mahfouz with screenplay and dialogue by Ahmed Saleh and
cinematography by Mamoun Ata. Plot Summary: In this film generations
of urban poor and their families come and go; this repetitive flow is
the story. Soleiman al-Nagy [Mahmoud Yassine] defeats Atris [Salah
Kabil] in a stick fight, establishes himself as the local tough guy
and distributes justly to the district racketeers the assets he has
collected from the rich. The rich people try to get rid of him.
Sania marries him after he divorces his first wife. She is able to
separate him from the racketeers and draw him into wealthy
circles. He opens a big agency. Khedr works with his father Soleiman
at the agency. He marries Bakr Redwana, [Laila Eloui] who loves him;
then he runs away from home after Bakr accuses him of disloyalty.
Soleiman's father becomes ill and moves to the home of his old wife
after she returns to his protection. When it becomes known that he
is bankrupt Atris becomes the neighborhood tough guy again. Khedr
returns and buys the agency at auction to bring dignity back to the
family after overcoming Atris. He discredits Bakr Redwana, who
acknowledges his brother's innocence before she dies.
