Money and Children (1954) - (Aqila Ratib)

This is a large 33" x 45" poster for the 1954 Egyptian film Money and Children [al-mal wal-banun] directed by Ibrahim Emara, starring Aqila Ratib and Mohsen Sarhan. The film tells the story of two married friends and their children, where the desire for children and the ability to have them is conditioned by financial considerations. One of the men takes a second wife to make the addition of children easier. The art is a joint project by Studio Adly and Ahmed Fouad.
