Dream Factory on the Nile: Posters and Memorabilia from the Golden Age of Egyptian Film

From the 1930s through the 1960s, the Egyptian motion picture industry produced films of such number and quality that it earned the nickname “The Hollywood on the Nile.” This exhibit brings together promotional posters, photographs, press booklets, and lobby cards from some of the finest films of the era, paired with narrative text by Stanford librarian David Giovacchini, and offers a crash course in historic Egyptian cinema.
