This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Moaty and Wael for the 1970 Kamal Salaheddin musical Rose and Thorn starring Nahed Sherif as Basima based on a novel by Fathy Abdel Hady and screenplay and dialogue by Ramona. Plot summary: Hassan Darwish Osman [Mohamed Rushdy] was a young man from Tanta who had loved his neighbor's daughter Basima for a long time. It was a love that would inevitably end in marriage; he had agreed to this the night of his sister's wedding. At the time he did not realize Basima was pregnant. When Hassan went to Cairo his wallet, cash and credit cards were stolen. The thief [Farouq Ali] was killed in a traffic accident and at first everyone thought Hassan had been killed too. The police even said that to his family. When Basima heard Hassan had been killed she tried to hide her pregnancy, but had trouble finding a way to get out of her house. She later confessed to a taxi driver named Mishmish [Saeed Saleh] what had happened; he agreed to marry her after hearing her story. Then Hassan turned up unexpectedly on the wedding night and Basima married him instead.
