Hermeen (1953) هيرمين

Egyptian dancer Hermeen in a scene from the 1953 film ‘Al Dunia Lamma Tidkah’ (When the World Smiles الدنيا لما تضحك ). The man in the audience gazing at her adoringly is Shukry Sarhan who was Hermeen’s husband at the time. The film also starred Samiha Tawfiq, Estefan Rosti, Ismail Yassine and Nagha Salem who’s singing in this scene.
Trivia: Shukry Sarhan married twice (that we know of) and his wives’ names are easy to remember; Hermeen (the dancer in this scene) and Nermeen.
