The Sound of Love [sawt al-hob] (Warda) - (1992) Egyptian film poster

Pictured is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Abdel Aziz and Abdel Fathy to promote the 1973 101-minute Helmy Rafla color film The Sound of Love starring Warda al-Gezaeriyah based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Adly El-Mowaled and with cinematography by Ibrahim Saleh. Plot summary: This is a simple romantic musical. It begins with idylic scenes of the betrothed couple strolling in a luxury hotel setting and takes an ominous tone when the bride-to-be reads a note to her fiancee from his father, instructing him to stay away from her. Dr. Mohsen [Hassan Youssef] loves his nurse Mona [Warda al-Gezaeriya] and wants to marry her but his father Dr. Shakur [Imad Hamdy] objects because he does not want his son to marry a nurse. Mona goes to Dr. Shakur's palatial estate to work as his private nurse and begins working with him as much as possible; he soon finds he is unable to do without her and depends on her. This convinces him she is a worthy wife for his son. While working for Dr. Shakur, Mona channels Warda and sings a few heavily orchestrated songs while strolling about the grounds, which also seems to impress the good Dr. Shakur along with the other members of his impressionable household.

Cast and crew: Hassan Youssef, Warda al-Gazaeriya, Helmy Rafla, Imad Hamdi, Mohammed El Arabi, Sa'eed Saleh, Hassan Mustafa, Ashraf Abdel Ghafour, Hayat Kandeel, Aziza Rashed, Hussein Assar, Ragaa Sadeq, Nawal Fahmy, Adly El-Mowaled
