Taheya Karioka (1959) كاريوكا تحية

Taheya Karioka dances in a scene from the 1959 Egyptian drama ‘Hob Hatta Alibeda’ ( حب حتى العبادة). The film’s title is often translated as ‘Sublime Amour’ which, even for 1959, is rather archaic language…..’Sublime Amour’ sounds like the name of a cheap perfume doesn’t it?  The film centres around union activity in a factory but there’s a love story too. Taheya Karioka starred along with Salah Zulfikar, Zizi al Badrawi, Riad Hussain, Omar Hariri and Zuzu Nabil.
