The Girl from Paris (1950) - (Taheya Cariocca) Egyptian one-sheet
This is an original-year 23.5" x 35" Egyptian poster designed by Studio Gasour and Khatab and printed by al-Halaby printers of Cairo to promote the 1950 Helmy Rafla film The Girl from Paris [bint bariz] starring Taheya Cariocca based on story and dialogue by Abou Seoud El-Ibiary with cinematography by Bruno Salvi. Plot summary: The manager of a theater where Adel [Mohammad Fawzi] worked as a musician hired a French dancer to work with him; when a cable came to the manager apologizing that the dancer would not be coming to Cairo, he hired a local look-alike [Taheya Cariocca] whom he falsely presented as the French dancer. Adel was not aware of the impersonation at first but he fell in love with the substitute and married her even after he realized what had happened.
