Amber [عنبر] (Laila Mourad) - (1948)

Amber [anbar] (Laila Mourad) - (1948) Egyptian film poster

This is an undated rerelease Egyptian poster made to promote the 1948 Anwar Wagdi 123-minute black-and-white film Amber [anbar] starring Laila Mourad as Amber based on a story by Mohamed Kamel Hassan with screenplay and dialogue by Anwar Wagdi and cinematography by Abdelhalim Nasr. Plot summary: Reshwan Basha [Abdel Waress Assar] is on a sickbed surrounded by family members. They are treating him quite harshly and refusing to give him water. They have his only daughter Amber [Laila Mourad] locked in the mansion bedroom. They are doing these things to force the Basha to tell them where he has hidden his wealth, which they desire. Anwar [Anwar Wagdi], owner of the Gold Star Casino, arrives with his attorney Hassan [Hassan Fayek]. While they are waiting to see the Basha, Anwar suddenly hears a sweet melodious voice coming from the bedroom. He looks through a panel in the door and sees Amber singing. After a short conversation with her, he finds himself surrounded by the members of the gang that wants Reshwan Basha's wealth. He tells them that he and his attorney Hassan have come to buy the clothing of Reshwan Basha's late wife. The gang agrees to sell him the clothing. These garments include a dress Amber once wore. After Anwar and Hassan leave the gang members take Amber and her sick old nanny to the bedside of Reshwan Basha, who is about to die. They leave Amber with her father according to his wishes. The Basha tells his secret to his daughter while the men in the gang are eavesdropping outside. The Basha tells his daughter Amber he married her mother against the wishes of his family, who fought him throughout the years of the marriage; he was sure they were going to fight his daughter after he died. This unhappy situation had led him to sell all of his property and use the money to buy jewelry. He put the jewels in a chest and hid it. He drew a map to its location and sewed the map into the collar of a black silk evening dress, the same dress Amber used to wear when she sang, and the same one Anwar has purchased. Amber collapses in tears as the members of the gang rush to the Gold Star Casino, which is a westernized nightclub where the orchestra, led by Anwar as its trumpet player, plays jazz standards such as Benny Goodman's I Found a New Baby. These melodies are mixed with performances by Laila Mourad and others of show tunes composed by Mohamed Abdel Wahab, some in the style of Western jazz, others with Egyptian scales and rhythms. Anwar tries to persuade Horia [Zeinat Sedki], a woman singer in his troupe, to wear the dress he has purchased, but she vehemently refuses. During the argument the hidden map comes out of the collar of the dress; Anwar gives it to Hassan, not knowing its value. After he learns what it is, he and Amber evade the gang, eventually make their way back to the mansion and find the hidden chest of jewels. This discovery is followed by a fight with the covetous gang, then a gala celebratory marriage between Anwar and Amber.

Pictured is a 25.25" x 36.5" Egyptian poster designed to promote the 1992 111-minute Nader Galal color film Wickedness [al-shariss] starring Youssra based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Magdy Hidaya with cinematography by Samir Farag. Plot summary: This is a police/gangland movie set in the Port of Alexandria. Three siblings lived in Alexandria. The first one Hamam [Mahmoud Hemida] was the leader of a gang of drug dealers operating under the cover of a shipping office inside the port. He succeeded in recruiting his little brother Khamis [Mahmoud El Guindi] for the narcotics trade, but their sister Fatma [Youssra] refused to engage in this illicit activity. She objected to their criminal trade and remained a simple sales worker at a clothing store. Fatma had a love relationship with Mansour [Youssef Mansour], a friend to her brother Khamis, but he was away from the neighborhood for many years; when he returned they renewed their relationship and decided to marry. The return of Mansour and his emotional tie with Fatma are a central part of the film's early development. Al-Agrudy [Nour El-Demerdash], a narcotics dealer in competiton with Hamam, wanted to marry Fatma, but she refused him. During an argument with Hamam he killed Zein [Ashraf Abdel Baqi], one of Hamam's agents; Khamis took revenge by killing three members of Al-Agrudy's gang. Al-Agrudy demanded that Hamam kill his brother Khamis, but Hamam just made his brother apologize to Al-Agrudy. Mansour, an athletic man skilled in shooting and the martial arts who had been absent for a considerable period engaged in unknown activity, then emerged as a police agent charged with purging the Port of Alexandria of narcotics gangs; he asked Fatma to help him with his secret mission. Hamam shot his brother Khamis, who died later in a hospital. Fatma was heartbroken and furious with her brother Hamam. Hamam was then killed in a confrontation by Al-Agrudy as Fatma watched. Then Mansour took on Al-Agrudy's gang in a heroic one-against-many fight; just as Al-Agrudy was about to shoot Mansour, Fatma shot and killed him, thus completing the purge of the Port of Alexandria. Youssra gets top billing on the poster for this film and she deserves it. She holds the film together.

Plot summary: This film tells the story of a man's problematic descent from a life of sumptious aristocratic privilege to the life of an ordinary member of the wealthy middle class. He never loses his huge home or suffers any drastic losses of comfort or convenience; his journey is accompanied with occasional sweet ballads by Sabah, who finally becomes his wife. As the narrative goes, Prince Shawkat [Ahmed Mazhar] loses his wealth and the revolution leaves him with only his mansion. He lives in hopes of selling his paintings. One night while out walking he sees someone selling roasted corn and tries to trade one of his medals for an ear of it, but the seller refuses the trade. A man named Hamuda [Salah Zulfikar] observes this. Hamuda, also broke even though he has a doctorate in Arabic grammar, buys the prince an ear of roasted corn. The two develop a rapport and the prince appoints Hamuda as his private secretary in exchange for room and board. When Hamuda sees paintings on a wall belonging to the prince's daughters Jihan [Mariam Fakhr Eddine] and Mervat [Laila Taher], the prince tells him Jihan has died, while his daughter Mervat has married Salem [Ahmed Louxor], a mechanical engineer. This marriage has angered the prince and Mervat's sister Jihan, who has had to move in with Mervat and Salem.

Salem's sister Karima [Sabah] is living in a villa with their father Abdul Salam [Hussein Assar]. Karima is a young widow who likes the prince and decides to go with his daughter Jihan to make a secret visit to the palace. Knowing the prince is broke, she leaves him some money on a table. Jihan sees Hamuda, recognizes him and assures him she is not really dead. Karima insists the prince must go with her to the market so he can carry the vegetables and a goose. He begins cultivating his own garden but he wears gloves while doing this to keep from hurting his soft hands. The prince decides to try to get a job playing the role of a prince in a film, but he fails the audition while Hamuda succeeds and gets the role. Hamuda is now able to propose to Jihan. The prince begins composing a symphony at a piano; Mervat and Jihan buy the symphony after a number of other people refuse to do so. The prince believes people like his music until Hamuda tells him the truth; this angers him and he decides to look for a job. He finds one with a tourist company as an Egyptian riverboat pilot and tour guide. Hamuda, Karima and Jihan are with him on one of his Nile cruises. Karima is happy the prince is working and earning with the sweat of his brow. After he finishes his descriptions of the attractions for the tourists the prince gives Karima an engagement ring; Hamuda does the same thing with Jihan--the happy ending complete with marriages! We all knew it was coming.

Plot summary: The head of the household died leaving the family suffering from hardship and deprivation. The oldest son Hassan [Farid Shawqi] ended up living in a depraved neighborhood dealing in drugs and women. Hussein [Kamal Hussein] the middle son took work with his middle school diploma to provide an opportunity for his brother Hassanein [Omar Sharif] to complete his studies and go to the war college. The daughter Nafisa [Sanaa Gamil] was without beauty and found herself driven out of the life of Soliman [Salah Mansour] the grocer after sinning with him. She continued on this disreputable path without any friends. She helped her brother Hassanein and her mother [Amina Rizk] with small amounts of money she had acquired. Hassanein graduated as an officer. He turned his back on his family, his fiancee Bayeha [Amal Farid] and his social milieu and rose to associate with the wealthy class through marriage. Hassan returned to his family broken-hearted, wounded and driven out of the police force. At the same time Hassanein was summoned to the police station because his sister had been accused of debauchery. Hassanein was in denial at first, but then knocked Nafisa down, kicked dirt on her and finally goaded her into drowning herself to eliminate the scandal after he was forced to acknowledge her guilt. This is the confrontation depicted on the poster. Then when it was too late he regretted her death, thought about his own life, saw his own world in ruins and jumped into the Nile himself.
