Ana Antar

From Mental Block
Ana Antar (AKA I Am Antar) is a 1966 Lebanese-Egyptian comedy-musical about two private investigators (Nihad Quali and Doreid Lahham) who investigate a series of jewelry thefts. It was one of more than twenty films starring the popular Syrian comedy duo of "Doreid and Nihad," who also wrote the film's screenplay. The film also spoofs then-current "secret agent" craze by outfitting the protagonists with a series of elaborate weapons, gadgets, and booby traps.
