This is 19.5" x 27.5" Iranian poster for the 1963 film The Shores of Anticipation written and directed by Syamak Yasami and starring Fardin; nominated for the Grand Prize at the 1963 Moscow International Film Festival. Plot summary: Qasem Khan [Akbar Khajavi] thought he owned part of the ocean and got into a clash with some fishermen over fishing rights. Everyone joined the fight and after Qasem Khan's people dispersed the fishermen they confiscated the fish they had caught. After his son Masoud [Mohammad Ali Jafari] attacked him and said his claim to ownership of part of the sea was unconscionable Qasem Khan drove him out of the house; he took refuge with the people. Ahmad [Fardin] liked Kazem's [Gholamhossein Naghshineh] daughter Maryam [Forouzan]. Ahmad went to sea fishing with a group of fishermen but the sea was tempestuous and he turned up missing. A girl named Ghazaleh [Tahmine] living near the beach with her father [Ali Zandi] found Ahmad washed ashore unconscious; she looked after him with his broken leg. In Ahmad's absence Masoud began teaching literacy to the local people and got close to Maryam, who was pregnant with Ahmad's child; Masoud married her to save her honor and told everyone he was the father of her child. Some time later Ahmad came back to his coastal home, but Maryam preferred living with Masoud. Ghazaleh was waiting for Ahmad after Maryam left him alone on the beach.
