Shamadan (1959)

I think this shamadan dancer is Zeinab Hassan. The scene is from the Egyptian film ‘Ahlam al banat’ (Girls’ Dreams أحلام البنات ) which was released in June 1959. The film starred Berlanti Abdel Hamid, Maha Sabry, Hassan Fayak, Marie Munib, Abdel Salam Al Nabulsi and Shokry Sarhan.
The film tells the story of three girls, all penniless orphans, who live and work together. Each girl has a dream for her future. Badria wants to get rich any way she can, Nahid dreams of fame and Huda dreams of finding love.
