Directed by Niazi Mostafa and based on a story by Abdel Aziz Salam, A Glass And A Cigarette is a captivating classic from the golden age of Egyptian cinema. The film features several of the era’s brightest stars, including the illustrious Samia Gamal as Hoda, a famous dancer who gives up the spotlight to marry and start a family with Mamdouh, a handsome young doctor who is just beginning his career. When Mamdouh’s scheming Italian head nurse Yolanda (played with gusto by the radiant Dalida) sets her sights on Mamdouh, Hoda’s jealousy drives her to drink, ultimately endangering everything she holds dear.

Featuring several dynamic Samia Gamal dance sequences and wonderful songs performed by Kouka and Dalida to help lighten the mood, A Glass And A Cigarette is an enchanting example of Egyptian melodrama at its finest.
