Suzy Khairy (1959) سوزي خيري

Suzy Khairy dancing in the 1959 comedy ‘Hassan and Marika’. This film starred Ismail Yassin playing Hassan who’s in love with Marika played by Maha Sabri. Hassan’s friend Fahlawy (which means shrewd or sly in Arabic) played by Abdul Salam al Nabulsi is also in love with Marika and the two men vie for her love. Meanwhile, her father, who’s the local Greek barber, has his own plans for Marika to marry another man. After a lot of confusion, mistaken identity and cross-dressing, there’s a twist to the story and a happy ending. Thank you to GypsyJewel for the ID.
The songs for the movie were composed by Mounir Murad the younger brother of Egyptian movie star Leila Murad.
