Shadia شادية and Wedad Hamdy وداد حمدي (1952)

Love this scene from the 1952 film ‘Beit al Nattash’ (بيت النتاش) which starred Ismail Yassin, Shadia, Zeinat Sedki and Abdel Fattah al Kasry. In this scene Shadia is the singer and the boy is Omar al Gizawy. Wedad Hamdy is playing the part of the maid, she’s great and such a good dancer.
Sadly Wedad Hamdy was murdered in 1994 by an intruder at her home.

Sahar Hamdi (1992) سحر حمدي

Egyptian bellydancer Sahar Hamdi in a beach scene from the 1992 Egyptian film ‘Al Mushaghiboun fi Nuweiba’.(المشاغبون فى نويبع ) which also starred Samira Sedki, Gamal Ismail and comedian Saeed Saleh who’s the man wearing shorts in this scene with Sahar. The film tells the story of three young men returning from their military training. They meet three women who persuade them to work for their father in the seaside town of Nuweiba. Sahar Hamdi dances to one of her signature songs ‘Si Abdo’ originally sung by Samir Ali. ‘Si Abdo’ was regarded as quite a naughty song, I’m told it was banned in Egypt at one time. The song’s risqué reputation is more for what it *doesn’t* say rather that what it does!
