Samia Gamal (1944) سامية جمال

Samia Gamal dancing at an engagement party in a scene from the 1944 film ‘Meen al Gani?’ (Who’s the Criminal? من الجانى) The film starred Amina Risk, Abbas Fares, Mary Munib and Anwar Wajdi. The man in the light coloured suit on the right hand side of the screen, slightly the worse for wear, is a very young Ismail Yassin.
The bedlah Samia’s wearing is a similar design to that worn by Hager Hamdi in the 1946 film ‘The Unknown Singer’. The clip of HH is also on this site if you’d like to compare costumes.
