Taheya Karioka (1950)(2) كاريوكا‎ تحية

Taheya Karioka dances in another scene from the 1950 Egyptian comedy ‘Al Batal’ (‘The Champion’ or ‘The Hero’ البطل). The central character in the film is Batal (Ismail Yassin) and he’s been mistakenly told that he has only a week to live. As a result, he hurriedly marries his fiancée Sharbat played by Shadia and this scene is set at their wedding. Batal has hired Toha the bellydancer, played by Taheya Karioka, to dance at the wedding but in order to save money as he thinks he’s going to die very shortly, he’s also hired a troupe of professional funeral mourners to perform at the same time.
