Taheya Karioka (1941) كاريوكا‎ تحية

What a show stopper! Taheya Karioka dances in a scene from the 1941 film ‘Leila, bint al Rif’ (‘Leila, country girl’ or ‘Leila, daughter of the countryside’ ليلى بنت الريف). The film was directed by the legendary Togo Mizrahi and starred Leila Mourad, Anwar Wajdi and Yousef Wehbi (the man with the rose).
