The Mistake of a Lifetime - غلطة العمر

$850.00 $1,100.00

Mahmoud Zulficar, Zouzou Nabil, and Huda Sultan star in this film that Zulficar also directed, about a doctor whose family life is falling apart. When he becomes obsessed with a beautiful young singer, his neglectful wife begins a gossip campaign to discredit her husband and force him to abandon what she believes is his “mistake of a lifetime.”

Huda Sultan takes center stage in this remarkably well composed piece, smoking a cigarette and quite beautiful in a simple green dress. Zulficar's portrait is rendered in a bold Expressionist style, with smoldering strokes of purple and ebony that hint at the swirling passions at play. This poster has unique collectible value, beyond its striking appeal: it is a very rare first edition poster from the acclaimed artist Gassour and features two of the most noteworthy Egyptian stars of the era.
