This romantic musical-drama from director Henri Barakat (The Nightingale's Prayer) features legendary Egyptian singer Abdel Halim Hafez in one of his earliest film roles. He stars as Yehia, a handsome young athlete who succeeds in every endeavor despite having been reared in an unhappy home. When Yehia starts courting the beautiful Samia (Lebanese actress Iman), his delinquent and resentful stepbrother begins acting out in ways that threaten to destroy all chances for the new couple's happiness. Filled with wonderful songs performed by Abdel Halim Hafez (including the classic ballad, Ana Lak Ala Toul) and a lush musical score by Mohamed Abdel Wahab, Days and Nights is a timeless classic that has been loved by many throughout the years.
