Katy (1953) كيتي

A fun piece featuring bellydancer Katy playing an office secretary in a scene from the 1953 Egyptian film ‘Maglis al Edara’ (Board of Directors مجلس الإدارة).  The other secretary is singer Soad Mekawy and ‘the man from security’ is played by Omar Al Gizawy.  This is the theme song from the film which starred Sherifa Maher, Hoda Shamseddine and Hassan Fayek.  Katy, though known as a bellydancer, was also a talented comedienne.
