Fekriya Mohamed (1952) فكرية محمد

The dancer in this scene from the 1952 Egyptian film ‘El Osta Hassan’ (Foreman Hassan الاسطى حسن) is Fekriya Mohamed (فكرية محمد). It seems that Fekriya Mohamed only appeared in four movies in the 1950s and then retired. The singer with her is Egyptian comedian and singer, Mahmoud Shekuku who shows a definite talent for candle balancing. The movie starred Huda Sultan and Farid Shawki (they were married for many years in real life) along with Zuzu Madi, Mary Munib and Riad Hussein. Also starring is a young Rushdi Abaza at the beginning of his acting career.
Rushdi Abaza was an Egyptian actor who later married Samia Gamal. The marriage lasted about 10 years until Samia Gamal learned that Rusdhi Abaza had not-so-secretly married Lebanese singer/actress Sabah. The Abaza-Sabah marriage only lasted 6 days at which point Sabah learned that Abaza had failed to divorce Samia Gamal.
