Hager Hamdi (1945) هاجر حمدى

This is Egyptian bellydancer Hager Hamdi (1924-2008) dancing in a scene from the 1945 film ‘Safir Gohannem’ (Hell’s Ambassador سفير جهنم ). The film starred Yousef Wehbi who you’ll see during the scene sitting at the bar with a cigar and a cocktail. Wehbi plays The Devil in the form of a suave rich man who lures a family into his clutches with promises of undreamed of wealth.   Also starring were Fouad Shafik, Leila Fawzi, Fadous Mohamed and a very young Samiha Tawfik.
