Using the theory of reason action-Fishbein and applying it on a 5 min. scene of the movie by: AlomaniQ8 THE EMPTY PILLOW This is a love story that it’s events occur, in Egypt, in the fifties, where there were strict traditions about love between non married lovers, and where the word of the parents rules the lives of their sons and daughters. In that movie, a young man (salah) who is still a student falls in love with a beautiful girl (Sameha), whom she is also an eighteen years old student, they are both college students, that get supported by their families. The scene begins, when Salah asks his father that he wants to be married, but his father laughs, and asks him if he is able to support himself or her.

Salah refuses, saying that she would get married to someone else, and her parents will not wait for me until I graduate. Unfortunately a doctor proposes to her and asks her hand to be his wife. Sameha’s father and mother agree instantly, without giving Sameha any notice, only thinking of the position and the how they would guarantee a wonderful future for their daughter with this doctor, adding that he is a very nice man and have great reputation. Sameha says that she is young to be married, and disagree. Sameha’s father say’s “no doughtier of mine argues with me in such matters, you will do as I say” Consequently, Sameha stop arguing. And shows yielding. She think about the hard time choosing between the two, the one she loves! or the fine rich physician, which her parents ergs her to marry. In order to prevent the marriage, Salah meets her in the desert where they used to meet. He starts convincing her to run a way with him. Sameha refuses, saying that her parents might have a heart attack, then she will not forgive herself. Salah remembers, what one of his friends suggested to him, and that he should rape her, and in this way she would be his according to the traditions. Consequently he tries to do so. She cries and begs him to let her go. But he refuses, until he notices the ring that she is still wearing, which he brought to her as a token of their love. Sameha runs a way. Sameha thinks hard and consults her heart and mind. Salah calls her but she refuses to answer. The next scene she is observed in a nice car with the doctor. The doctor opens the car door for her.

But Sameha congratulates him and showing that she is happy with her choice to marry the doctor. Using the Theory of Reason Action-FISHBEIN. Fishbein refers to beliefs, attitudes, and intentions. We have referred to these as the cognitive, affective, and cognitive (behavioral) components of attitudes. In this theory, the receiver’s variables such as the demographic: age, sex, education, religion and the personality have a direct impact on beliefs and how they are evaluated. The behavior is a function of the individual’s behavioral intention. Intentions are compromised of two components. 1. Affective attitudes, which are a function of beliefs about consequences subjective Evaluation of those consequences. 2.Subjective norms, which are a function of beliefs about the expectations of others times my motivation to comply with them. Behavioral intentions are the only direct determinant of behavior. And are determined by affective attitudes and subjective norms. The personal component: Belief: How true is it about the attitude object? Evaluative: Hoe good or bad is it? Social component Normative beliefs: How supportive is the person? Motivation to comply: how much do I want to listen
