Riri (1957) ريري

This is another clip of Egyptian dancer Riri performing in the 1957 Egyptian comedy, ‘Ismail Yassine lil Beih’ (Ismail Yassine for Sale اسماعيل يس للبيع).
The film tells the story of Leila, played by former child star Fayrouz, who tries to commit suicide but is saved by Ismail (Ismail Yassine).. Fayrouz would have been around 16 years old when this film was made. Some sites give her birth year as 1943 which would have made her only 14 when this film was made. Also starring were Thuraya Helmi and Reyad El Kasabgy.
