Fekriyah Mohamed (1950) فكرية محمد

I think the dancer in this scene is Fekriya Mohamed and the singer is Sawsan. The scene is from the 1950 film ‘Qamar arba ‘tachar’ (Qamar 14, Full Moon) which starred Mahmoud Zulfikar and Camelia. The bellydancer appears after the dancing horse and the men’s assaya.
Movie trivia: The story of Camelia, who starred in the movie, is interesting. Born in Alexandria, her birth name was Lilliane Victor Cohen and, like many other actresses of the time, she was linked romantically with King Farouk. Camelia only made a handful of films before dying in a plane crash in 1950 at the age of twenty-one.
