Nagwa Fouad in a scene from the 1976 film ‘Aalam Eyal Eyal’ (A World of Children – the word ‘eyal’ meaning children is repeated in the Arabic title as there are lots of them involved).  The film starred Rushdi Abaza, Samira Ahmed, Samir Sabri and Samir Ghanem and told the story of a lady with 8 kids who marries a man with 6 – or it could be the other way round – anyway, there are lots of children and the film tells the story of the resulting problems with a blended family.
