Nagwa Fouad (1960) فؤاد نجوى

‘Has Nagwa Fouad ever danced with elephants?’ I hear you ask. Well no, you didn’t ask that at all did you, but here’s the answer in a scene from the 1960 Egyptian film ‘Gharem fil Sirk’ (Love in the Circus غرام فى السيرك ). The film starred Ismail Yassin, Berlanti Abdel Hamid, Tawfik al Deqn and child actor Ahmed Farhat who’s just as cute as a button.
In this film Nagwa Fouad plays Warda who’s part of the circus trapeze act along with her husband Hassan. Hassan’s played by none other than Farouk (Frank) Agrama who went on to be a famous director of horror films in the US.
Trivia: Frank Agrama was also the producer of ‘Bazy-e-shance’ that starred bellydancer Nadia Gamal.  You can see NG’s bellydance clip from that film on this blog.
