Between Heaven and Earth بين السماء والارض (Hind Rostom) - (1960) Egyptian one-sheet

Between Heaven and Earth (1960) - (Dir: Salah Abouseif) Egyptian one-sheet

This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian undated rerelease poster by an unknown artist for the 1960 Salah Abouseif film Between Heaven and Earth based on a screenplay by Naguib Mahfouz, El Sayed Bedeir and Salah Abuseif and starring Hind Rostom as the movie star Nahed Shukry. A group of city people got into an elevator going to various floors in a big building. There was an actress who had a role to play in a film about the tallest building. She was being pursued by a man who was in the habit of following women. There was a woman going to her lover, and there was someone from a gang that steals valuables. There was a crazy person fleeing from a mental hospital and an old man who had left his family to marry a younger woman. The elevator stopped working, but the doorman had gone to see a soccer game, so the rescue was delayed. The police were called, who finally located the elevator and broke through the wall. The rescue was made and they all went back to their original plans. The actress completed her job, the thief was arrested and the man who loved women went looking for a new woman. According to film critic Sa'ad al-Din Tawfiq this is one of the top 100 Egyptian films. This film is also on film critic Ahmad Al-Hadari's 2007 list of the 100 most important Egyptian films. Although it was not a commercial success, it was Egypt's entry in the Yugoslavia Film Festival in 1960.
