Nabaweya Hassan (1951) نبوية حسن

The dancer in this clip is Nabaweya Hassan (نبوية حسن) who only seems to have appeared in two movies, both in 1951 and both starring comedian Ismail Yassin. This scene is from “My Mother-in-Law is an Atomic Bomb” (Hamati Kombola Zorriaحماتى قنبلة ذرية). The film tells the story of Zaahar and Batta (Ismail Yassin and Taheya Karioka) who are a happily married couple.  Unfortunately Batta’s mother, played by veteran comedienne Mary Munib thinks Batta can do better for herself and forces the couple apart.  Also starring were Wedad Hamdi and Abdel Fatah el Quossary. Many thanks to Atyat Ghareeb and Sonja Antanasijevic for the dancer ID.

Horeya Mohamed and Marie Munib (1949)

Horeya Mohamed is the dancer wearing trousers and shirt in this clip from the 1949 Egyptian film ‘Assir al Ayoun’ aka ‘Assir el Aioun’ (اسير العيون The Prisoner of Her Eyes).
The lady in the white dress who corrects Horeya’s dom and tek is legendary Egyptian comedienne Marie Munib who was born in Syria (or Lebanon) in 1905 as Marie Habib Salim Ibrahim (or Nasr). She moved with her family to Cairo when she was very young and starting her stage life working as a dancer in Rod (Road) al Farag, an area of Cairo that was known at the time for its many nightclubs. Marie Munib worked with several theatre companies including that of Naguib al Rihany and then had a long career in Egyptian movies often playing a tyrannical mother-in-law. She married actor Fawzi Munib when she was probably only 13 or 14 and, despite their divorce in 1935 and her later remarriage, she retained his name. Mary Munib died in Cairo in 1969.
Trivia: Mary Munib was the grandmother of well known Egyptian singer Aamer Munib who passed away in 2011.
