Hoda Shams El Din (1952) هدى شمس الدين

Hoda Shams El Din dances in a scene from the 1952 comedy ‘Halal Alyek’ (You Really Deserve It حلال عليك ) which starred Ismail Yassin, Elias Moadab and Estefan Rosti.  Elias Moadab, who’s singing in this scene, dropped dead of a heart attack aged only 36 soon after the conclusion of filming.
There are two films with similar titles starring Ismail Yassin: ‘Halal Alyek’ (You Deserve It) released in 1952 and ‘Haram Aalik'(Shame on You) released in 1954. The second film is also known as ‘Ismail Yassin Meets Frankenstein’. Both are based on previously released films by US comedians Abbott and Costello, the first on ‘A Haunting we will go’ and the second on ‘A&C Meet Frankenstein’. Usual thanks to Dr Kiss.
