Fifi Salama and a mystery bellydancer (1959)

From a 1959 film ‘Lan Aoud’ (I will not return لن أعود) which starred Kamal al Shinnawi.and Abdel Menam Ibrahim who are the two men entering the nightclub. Also starring were Soheir al Babli, Samira Ahmed and Abbas Fares.The lighting in the first clip is very dark and the dancer’s face is not visible but it *could* be Taheya Karioka who had a part in this film. I didn’t get the whole movie so I’m at a bit of a loss. The dancer in the second part of the clip is Fifi Salama and the music she’s dancing to is ‘Khatwit Habibi by Mohammed Abdel Wahab (thank you Amirah al Shuruq).

Fifi Salama فيفي سلامة & others ‘Zanouba’ (1956)

Three scenes from the 1956 film ‘Zanouba’ which starred Samia Gamal, Shukri Sarhan and Stefan Rosti. Fifi Salama is the dancer in the first scene where Samia is sitting on the couch. I think the second dancer is Riri Ibrahim and the third could be Morsi Mahassen. What do you think?

In the second part of the clip Marie Munib is left front.  Ismail Yassine enters the party and stands right in front of the dancer grrr!
