The Homeless (1980) - (Naglaa Fathy) Egyptian one-sheet
This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Moaty for the 1980 Ashraf Fahmy film The Homeless based on a story by Naguib Mahfouz, screenplay by Ahmed Saleh and starring Naglaa Fathy as Laila. Laila was a successful attorney married to a wealthy contractor named Fathy [Mahmoud Yassine]. They were entirely different culturally. He was ignorant whereas she was a hard worker in a high social position. She was constrained in her life with him and withdrew from him after failing to improve his social worth. Fathy took up with a woman with a bad reputation named Sausan [Nabila Ebeid]. Laila learned about his relationship with her and asked him for a divorce, which she got. Laila defended a woman in a case similar to the one in her own life. The person she was defending killed her husband after discovering he had been unfaithful to her, even though he had lifted her out of poverty and married her, and this is what had happened to Laila. During a visit to Sausan Fathy suddenly had a severe heart attack. Sausan contacted Laila to tell her about his illness. Laila felt regret about the way she had treated him and asked him to forgive her, but he died in Sausan's home as a result of the heart attack.
