During almost seven decades, the company distributed more than 150 films inside and outside Egypt, many of
which have received critical and audience acclaim and became known as classical films. Through these films,
Dollar Film introduced many prominent actors/actresses to Arab cinema, such as the duo Omar Sharif and Faten
Hamama (The River of Love). The company also built a strong lasting bond with Egyptian action star Farid
Shawki (Platform No. 5). Furthermore, the company solidified comedy actor Adel Emam’s position as one of the
Arab world’s biggest movie stars through some of his early films, such as Shaaban Below Zero. Supporting and
introducing promising talents to the Arab film industry has always been part of the company’s philosophy.
Dollar Film produced many films based on bestselling novels, including The Road by Nobel Laureate Naguib
Mahfouz and The Virgin and the White Hair by Ihsan Abdel Quddous, along with films written by prominent
screenwriters, such as Under Zero by Osama Anwar Okasha and Malaf Fel Adab by Wahid Hamed. The company has
also collaborated with veteran directors in Egyptian cinema, such as Ezz Eldein Zo El Faqqar (A Beginning
and an End), Salah Abou Seif (Between Heaven and Earth), Fatin Abdel Wahab (A Rumor of Love), Atef Salem
(Struggle on the Nile), Henry Barakat (The Nightingale's Prayer), Hossam El-Din Mustafa (Al-Harafish),
Hussein Kamal (My Love... Always) and Atef El Tayeb (The World on the Wing of a Pigeon).
