This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Hassan Mazhar Gasour to promote the 1969 89-minute Houssam El-Din Mustafa black-and-white film Son of Satan [ibn al-shaytan] starring Farid Shawqi based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Adly El-Mowalid with cinematography by Victor Antoun. Plot summary: The son of Satan was a disguised criminal whose primary aim in life was to kill all the men who had married again after leaving their wives and children. This was his way of getting revenge against his own father for remarrying. There was a local lunatic who called himself the son of Satan [Tewfiq El Dekn], but there was no evidence of criminal wrongdoing against him. The owner of a public place named Atris [Mahmoud El-Meliguy] refused to hold any weddings in the village fearing the son of Satan would take revenge. The police sergeant Morsi [Farid Shawqi], who tried to keep the peace, gave him assurances. Morsi's brother [Ibrahim Khan] came to the village and was kidnapped by the son of Satan. He was saved by Saidia [Naglaa Fathy] who lived with her mother at the home of the son of Satan; she then fled for her life. The Son of Satan chased her everywhere. After a long bloody struggle between the son of Satan, Sergeant Morsi and his brother Ibrahim, they discovered that the real son of Satan was actually Atris, the owner of the public place. He was killed in the struggle and then life continued calmly in the village.
