When the pasha's brother Fathy (Anwar Wagdy) saw her he was taken by her beauty and the sweetness of her voice when she sang. He fell in love with her and tried to attract her in various ways but failed to arouse any interest. While he had a fierce desire for her, he did not find any way other than marriage, so he actually took her under marriage contract as a common law wife and had a honeymoon with her in Alexandria. He returned with her, but they had to live together in her humble home in one of the neighborhoods in view of his father's anger about what had happened. Fathy could not tolerate living there or interacting with the people of that neighborhood, and he left after he was fed up with it. Chance led him to the villa of Mervat (Mimi Shakeeb), an aristocratic girl. He made preparations to marry her also because he had already promised her he would do that. Fathy found that this was the way to please his father the pasha, and he returned to his father's mansion forgetting his wife the nurse. His father asked him to get the marriage paper from this nurse, which he did but only after Fatmah had made a photocopy of it. Fathy abandoned Fatmah but she had become pregnant by him and had his child, although he denied it. The people in the neighborhood met and decided to raise the issue of Fathy. In the midst of these events Fathy told his wife Mervat about the situation and then went to Fatmah's house to ask her forgiveness. He was struck by an automobile on the way, just when he had come to his senses and decided to return to Fatmah with regret for what he had done and acknowledge that he was the father of her son.

Punjab Mail (1939) - (Fearless Nadia) Indian Film Poster

The Punjab Mail (1939) - (Fearless Nadia) Indian one-sheet

Mary Ann Evans was the name given at birth to two different women who are no longer primarily remembered by that name, the English novelist George Eliot (1819 - 1880) and the Australian/Indian actress Fearless Nadia (1908 - 1996). Both are very famous, but Fearless Nadia is much more important in the world of cinema; she will always be remembered as Bollywood's original stunt queen. The Australian Mary Ann Evans moved to India at the age of five to be with her father Herbertt Evans, whose regiment had been deployed there in 1909. On the advice of an Armenian fortune teller she later changed her name to Nadia for the sake of her career (the fortune teller had said she would need a name that began with the letter "N").

This is a very rare original 20" x 29" Indian stone lithograph poster made to promote the 1939 Homi Wadia film The Punjab Mail starring Fearless Nadia.
