from the 1953 Niazi Mostafa film Hamido based on a story by
Farid Shawqi with screenplay by El Sayed Bedeir and Niazi Mostafi,
dialogue by El Sayed Bedeir, cinematography by Wahid Farid and
starring Farid Shawqi as Hamido. This was quite a popular film in
Egypt but original posters and other memorabilia for it are quite
rare. Plot summary: Hamido was a fisherman near Alexandria who was
trying to get ahead by dealing in narcotics, the shortest route to
wealth. He joined a narcotics gang and courted a girl named Sa'dia
[Hoda Soltan] who was working for his mother. She trusted him and fell
in love with him, but then he seduced her and started avoiding her.
He regretted his promise to marry her because he had taken up with
Fawzia [Taheya Cariocca] the girlfriend of the leader of his gang
[Mahmoud El-Meliguy] and taken over leadership of the gang. When his
mother realized Sa'dia was pregnant she threw her out of the house,
but then Sa'dia told the mother the truth about her son's narcotics
dealing. Hamido overheard this angry denunciation; he took Sa'dia out
on a boat ride in the sea so he could drown her with her shame and be
done with her. However she was later rescued by a nearby fishing boat.
A police agent disguised himself, infiltrated Hamido's narcotics gang
and arrested them, but Hamido himself fled and was killed before he
could be arrested.
