This is actress Nahed Sharif performing in a scene from the 1977 Egyptian comedy ‘The Husbands are Devils’ (Al Azwag al Shayateen الأزواج الشياطين). The groom is Adel Imam. Comedienne Wedad Hamdi makes a guest appearance in the first scenes of the film playing the victim of a robbery after her maid Naima (Nahed Sherif) steals her jewellery and hides it on-board a houseboat belonging to Mamdouh (Adel Imam). The film also starred Youssef Fakhr Eddine, Madiha Kamil, Laila Taher and Saeed Salah.
Background: Adel Imam had released a film titled ‘Naughty Husbands’(Azwaj Teshoon أزواج طائشون) the previous year and the two films are often confused. To add to the confusion, the earlier film ‘Azwaj Teshoon’ also featured Madiha Kamil and had a ‘same-same but different’ storyline. The earlier film co-starred Samir Ghanem and Buthayna Nasser.
Actress Nahed Sherif (1942-1981) dances in a scene from the 1974 joint Syrian/Egyptian film ‘Emraa Haraah’ (Confused Woman إمرأة حائرة ). The film also starred Sharifa Fadel, Nour al Sherif, Syrian actor Fathi Abdul Latif and former Miss Lebanon, Nadia Arslan.
This scene is from the 1976 film ‘Laman toshreq al shams” (For Whom the Sun Shines لمن تشرق الشمس ) which starred actress Nahed Sherif (ناهد شريف) who’s the dancer in this scene. Also starring were Rushdi Abaza and Nadia Ezzat who is the woman watching.
The film was directed by Hussein Helmi al Mohandes who was Nahed Sherif’s husband at the time.
Actress Nahid Shareef dances in a scene from the 1974 Egyptian film’ Emraa Haara’ (Confused Woman إمرأة حائرة) in which she starred along with Nour al Sherif, Salwa Saeed and Sharifa Fadel.
Trivia: The music for the film was composed by Baligh Hamdi and the Rahbani Brothers. Love the music though I think its been dubbed over afterwards.
