This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Moaty and al-Thaghr Khamis for the 1980 film Gloria written and directed by John Cassavetes and starring Gena Rowlands as Gloria Swenson. Plot summary: Gloria Swenson is a former mobster's mistress who hates kids. As luck would have it, she has agreed to care for six-year-old Phil Dawn [John Adames]. Gloria then finds that Phil's mother, father and sister have all been murdered by the mob to prevent Phil's father Jack [Buck Henry] from informing the police about mob activities, with which he had been intimately familiar because of his work as their accountant. Gloria and Phil are now an unlikely pair running from the mob in New York City. More pursuers join the chase when the police suspect Gloria of kidnapping Phil.
