Mervat Amin (1972) ميرفت أمين

The two dancers in this clip are actress Mervat Amin and comedian Fuad al Mohandes (1924-2006). The scene is from the Egyptian comedy ‘The Return of the Most Dangerous Man in the World’ (Awdat Akhtar Ragol f’il Aalam عودة أخطر رجل فى العالم). In this film Fuad al Mohandes reprises the dual roles of Zaki the insurance company rep and international criminal mastermind Mr X.  These roles were first seen in the 1967 film ‘The Most Dangerous Man in the World starring al Mohandes and his then wife Shweiker.
This time there is a maharajah in town and Zaki is sent to convince the maharajah that he should insure his jewellery. Meanwhile Mr X is planning on stealing the gems. Also starring in the film were Samir Sabri, Salah Nazmi and Wafik Fahmy who’s the maharajah and is wearing the turban in this scene. The blonde woman who faints is a little known actress called Birgitte who only made a couple of films.

Trivia: 1) Mervat Amin’s second husband (she’s had four) was guitarist Omar Khorshid.
2) Filming of this movie was completed in 1972 but it wasn’t released until the following year.
