Lebanese dance troupe (1964)

This scene is from the 1964 film ‘A String of Pearls’ aka ‘The Pearl Necklace’ (Akh al luluعقد اللولو), a Lebanese/Syrian production which had previously been both a tv sketch and a stage play. The film starred Lebanese singer/actress Sabah along with famous Syrian comedians Durraid Lahham and Nihad al Qali. Also starring was Fahad Ballen, a popular Syrian born singer who’d moved to Egypt and worked with Farid al Atrash.
