Beauty of the Airport (1970) - (Naglaa Fathy) Egyptian rerelease one-sheet

This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Mohammad Aziz and Hassan Mazhar Gasour for the 1970 El Sayed Bedir film Beauty of the Airport based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Abdul Rahim Abol Aouf and starring Naglaa Fathy as Jill. Plot summary: On the return flight from Beirut the lawyer Fouad (Hassan Youssef) met a pretty girl (Naglaa Fathy) who called herself Jill. They separated at the Cairo airport. Fouad went home and Jill went to a hotel in the city. At the airport the police found an unclaimed briefcase filled with dollars and investigated the source of the funds. Downtown the gang was looking everywhere for Jill -- who did the gang's accounting -- intending to torture her to make her tell them the location of the briefcase. The leader of the gang demanded that she be released so they could follow her and find the briefcase. Jill feared for her life and contacted the attorney Fouad for help, claiming she was being threatened with murder because of an inheritance from the family of her deceased husband. Fouad befriended her and allowed her to stay with him. The gang learned where she was staying and seized her a second time in an automobile owned by the father of Fouad's fiance Amal. Fouad was worried about the possibility of being associated with the gang when he read a report about Jill's struggle in dark circumstances. Meanwhile the security men were tracking the gang's movements and ordered that they be surrounded and caught before they could flee to Beirut. The innocence of Amal's father was proven and it was established that he was not part of the gang; indeed it was proven that the leader of the gang was the one who had been driving his automobile.
