The setting is a wedding in a scene from the 1946 Egyptian film ‘Al mughani al maghool’ (The Unknown Singer المغني المجهول). The film starred Mohammed Al Kahlawi as Mohamed the unknown singer of the title. Also starring were Amira Amir, Hassan Fayek and Shekuku.
The dancer is Egyptian legend Taheya Karioka and the male singer is Mohamed Fawzi.
Here are two clips of Egyptian actress Soheir Ramzy dancing in the 1982 film ‘Ana mish Haramia’ (I am not a thief أنا مش حرامية). The man dancing with her in the second scene is a famous Egyptian comedian named Samir Ghanem.
Any IDs for this bellydancer please? Suggestions so far have included “Zeinat Olwi wearing a wig”. The scene is from the 1960 Egyptian film ‘Three Men and a Woman’ (Thalath (Talata) Regal wa Imra’a ثلاثة رجال وإمرأة). The film starred Lebanese diva Sabah along with Kamal al Shinnawi, Souad Hosni, Ahmed Farag and Abdel Salem al Nabulsi.
Zizi Mustafa dances in a scene from the 1983 Egyptian comedy film ‘Massoud Saeed Leh?’ (Why’s Massoud Happy? مسعود سعيد ليه). The singer is Fatma Eid (فاطمة عيد). The film starred Wahed Seif, Said Saleh and Essad Younes and tells the story of Massoud a poor man who finds a large sum of money in a bag, returns it and is rewarded. The owner of the money is murdered and the money is stolen. Massoud was the last person seen with the victim etc but it all ends happily.
This is bellydancer Hagar Hamdi dancing in a scene from the 1946 Egyptian film ‘Al mughani al maghool’ (The Unknown Singer المغني المجهول) which starred Mohammed Al Kahlawi, Shekuku, Hassan Fayak and Aziza Amir.
Many thanks to Osama Salem for the ID.
