This is a 79" x 169" unused six-piece Italian billboard poster designed by Manfredo for the 1965 Youssef Chahine Lebanese musical Auliban the Seller of Jokes written by Assi Rahbani and Mansour 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 becomes obvious 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.
