Nagwa Fouad (1959)

Nagwa Fouad in the 1959 film “Ismail Yassin fil tayyaran” (Ismail Yassin in the Air Force) which starred Egyptian comedian Ismail Yassin playing twins, Hussein and Ismail. One twin has a high-flying career in the air force (if you’ll pardon the pun) while the second twin has been less successful in life and works as a gopher for a film company. The second twin falls in love with a dancer (Nagwa) and hopes that by impersonating his more successful twin he’ll win her heart. He borrows his twin’s Air Force uniform to impress the dancer but while wearing it he’s called back on duty.
