Naima Akef (1949) عاكف‎ نعيمة

Naima Akef in a scene from the 1949 Egyptian film ‘Sitt al Bayt’ (Lady of the House ست البيت). From what I’ve been able to find out, this was her first credited movie role.  The film starred Faten Hamama (who was married to Omar Sharif for many years).  Also starring were Emad Hamdi, Thuraya Fakri, Hosna Soloman and Zeinab Sedki.  Zeinab (with a ‘b’) Sedki is often confused with Zeinat (with a ‘t’) Sedki the comedienne from the same era who often appeared in films with Ismail Yassine.
The singer in this scene is Abdul Aziz Mahmoud while Emad Hamdi is at the bar getting hammered.
