Striped Voyage (1961) - (Margarita Nazarova) Egyptian one-sheet
Pictured is an Egyptian poster by an unknown designer for the 1961 124-minute Vladimir Fetin color comedy Striped Voyage [ПОЛОСАТЫЙ РЕЙС] written by Aleksei Kapler and Viktor Konetksy, a Russian satire about life in the Soviet Union. Plot summary: The Soviet cruise ship "Evgeni Onegin" is bound for Odessa with cages of tigers and lions for a Soviet Circus. A loose monkey unlocks all the cages releasing the tigers and lions. The poor passengers and crew have no place to run. The frightened captain [Aleksei Gribov] abandons the ship's wheel and the monkey takes over navigation. The ship is completely overrun by tigers and lions. Only one woman is up to the challenge. Her name is Marianna [Margarita Nazarova]; she loves animals and is soon in command. The Arabic title in red script at the top of the poster is rahlet khatara [dangerous trip] with an Arabic tag line "two hours of continuous laughter."
