Hamido - حميدو

$1,150.00 $1,425.00

Farid Shawqi stars as Hamido, a fishing boat captain who leads a sinister double life as a womanizer and drug smuggler. The incomparable Huda Sultan portrays Sa'diya, his young fiancée who has no idea of his true nature. When she becomes the target of his violence, a fortunate escape has her eager for revenge in a race with a rival drug boss also bent on settling the score with Hamido. Mahmoud El-Meligy and Tahiya Carioca also star.

This scarce poster was designed by acclaimed Greek-Egyptian artist Vassiliou. The dangerous Hamido, gripping a knife, looms in the foreground. Sa'diya looks on from above, beautiful and innocent, rendered in a lovely purple monotone. A small illustration of a riverboat suggests the nautical setting. The artistry is colorful, bold, and very appealing.
