This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster made by an unknown designer to promote the 1967 93-minute Ahmed Sarwat color film Marriage by Airmail starring Adel Imam, Farid Shawqi and Nahed Sherif based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Farouk Said with cinematography by Ramzi Ibrahim; the film was produced by Hussein Yaqut Films and distributed by Al-Salam Films. Plot summary: Gharib [Adel Imam] and Fakri [Sameer Ghanem] were exchanging letters about Fekry going to America. Fakry was working for a cabaret owner [Farid Shawqi] even though he was harsh in his dealings with the cabaret owner's daughter Amira, [Nahed Sherif] who had decided to run away from her father's home. She went to Gharib's house to take refuge with him at a time when Fakri was writing to Gharib asking him to find him a bride. Gharib presented the idea to Amira and she agreed to it; Fakri married her by proxy so she could get away from her father and his violence. Over time Amira discovered she loved Gharib and that he had the same feelings for her. Fakri arrived in Cairo to get his bride and learned the whole story; he divorced Amira so his lifetime friend Gharib could marry her.
