Zeffa (wedding procession) 1948

The zeffa (wedding procession) from the 1948 Egyptian film ‘Talaq Suad Hanem’ (Madame Suad’s Divorce طلاق سعاد هانم). The singer in this scene is Mahmoud Ibrahim Ismail Moussa, better known as Shekuku and he’s pushing the groom (Anwar Wagdy) who’s in a wheelchair (its a long story LOL).
Trivia: Also appearing in this film was Farid Shawki as just a supporting actor. He went on to become a cinema superstar in Egypt.
