Lawahez لواحظ Shadia 1957 Egyptian one-sheet

Lawahez (1957) - (Shadia) Egyptian one-sheet

This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Ahmed Fouad for the 1957 Hassan Al Imam film Lawahez based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Mohamed Mostafa Samy and starring Shadia [1931-2017] as Lawahez. Plot summary: Lawahez was a bright star among the great performers, who sang and danced with wonder and fascination. Her parents had been sent to prison and she was summoned to visit her ailing mother at the prison hospital. Her mother confessed to her that she was not the daughter of the convicted "bachelor teacher." She was the daughter of a respected man who had married her mother secretly and had not left her. She later married "the teacher" who took advantage of her and involved her in his crimes. The mother died and the girl felt she had been released from the domination of the criminal she had thought to be her father, who had been sending her threatening extortionist letters from the prison. The girl refused to pay anything to the messenger then went to a police officer to seek protection from him. By chance this officer was the son of the second wife of the respected man who was the girl's true father. He spoke to his mother's husband about the tragedy of the girl he had seen in his office and the man realized the girl Lawahez was his daughter. He told the officer and asked him to conceal the matter to avoid angering his mother. The officer decided the only way to save the girl from the miserable night life was to bring her home to work as a maid for her father, his mother's husband, who had taken ill. Lawahez agreed to this because she loved the officer. She lived at her father's house without telling her friends, and the young son, who was her half brother, flirted with her. She and the officer fell in love. The "teacher" got out of prison and went looking for the girl. He broke into the father's home and demanded that the girl be returned to him. The real father refused. The teacher offered to pay to have the girl turned over to him. Then the wife discovered the girl had worked in a cabaret and banished her from the home to return to her old work. The teacher and his gang went to the cabaret where they abducted the girl and took her to his hideout. He tried to rape her but the girl resisted and stabbed him to death with a knife just when the officer arrived with policemen to save her.
