Condition: Folded, Excellent
This is a 55" x 77" unused two-piece Italian four-sheet
poster designed by Manfredo for the 1965 Youssef Chahine
film Auliban the Seller of Jokes written by Assi Rahbani and
Mahsour Rahbani and starring Fairuz as Rima. Plot summary: The story
is set in the year 1914 in a peaceful mountain village in Lebanon. The
mayor, seeing that the population is bored, invents a fictitious
character named Rajeh; he tells stories to villagers about the
exploits of this person, who is a robber and a murderer. One day the
mayor (Nasri Shamseddine) warns the villagers that Rajeh is heading to
the village itself and tells them they must beware. Two clever men
realize the mayor has been lying and decide to impersonate the
fictitious Rajeh, steal money and assault the mayor in the
dark. Eventually an old man who is really named Rajeh arrives in the
village, amid public fears. Then it became obvious that Rajeh was
merely a seller of rings for weddings who had wanted to marry his son
to the mayor's daughter Homa (Fairuz). The two miscreants willingly go
to jail for exploiting the mayor's prank.
