Man without a Heart (1960) - (Hind Rostom) Egyptian one-sheet
This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Mohammad Abdel Aziz to promote the 1960 Seif Eddin Shawkat 76-minute black-and-white film Man without a Heart [ragal bila qalb] starring Hind Rostom based on story and screenplay by Hassan Tewfik with cinematography by Abdelhalim Nasr. Galal [Yehia Chahine] discovered his wife Zahra [Zahrat El-Ola] had betrayed him with Kamal [Shukry Sarhan] and killed him. He swore he would never again go near his wife. The years passed and the separation continued. Aida [Hind Rostom] came to the estate intending to draw Galal into her net. Galal found her lying ill on the ground and took her to his home to stay there until she could recover. She caught his son [Ahmed Ramzy], a student named Nabil, in her net, because he loved her madly. The son and the father competed to get close to Aida while Galal's wife Zahra was aware of this situation and kept silent. Zahra quickly learned that Aida was the sister of the murdered Kamal come to take revenge against her brother's killer. Aida succeeded in getting Galal to ask her to marry him, then Galal chased his son across a field with a rifle with the intent of killing him after learning Aida was running away with him. Before Galal could shoot, he was killed with a bullet fired by his wife, who wanted to get justice for herself. This is an example of one of those remarkable events often seen in movies where people otherwise not known to the audience for having any abilities with firearms unexpectedly demonstrate remarkable prowess by hitting a human target with a single fatal shot.
