Pictured is a 27" x 39" undated rerelease Egyptian poster designed by Stamatis Vassiliou and Dimitri Gabriel to promote the 1962 Hassan Al Imam 146-minute black-and-white film Sins [al-khataya] starring Abdel Halim Hafez based on a story by Mohamed Osman with screenplay and dialogue by Mohamed Moustapha Sami and Mohamed Osman and with cinematography by Wahid Farid. Plot summary: This film depicts a family conflict over which of its two sons Hussein [Abdel Halim Hafez] or Ahmed [Hassan Youssef] should marry Soheir [Nadia Lutfi], even though Soheir and Hussein have decided they want to marry. The father [Mahmoud El-Meliguy] does not want to give his blessing because he does not believe Hussein is actually his son; he tries to drive Hussein out of the family after he and Ahmed have been raised as brothers, which proves to be an impossibility. The film showcases the singing of Abdel Halim Hafez.
