Bellydancer Zuzu Mohamed and singer/comedian Shekuku in a scene from the 1950 Egyptian film ‘Zalamouni el nas’ (Unfairly Treated ظلمونى الناس). The film is about sisters played by Faten Hamama and Shadia whose father is falsely accused of embezzling money from his employer. The film also starred Abbas Fares and Kamal Al Shinawi.
Zuzu Mohamed died in 1960 aged only 36 after being shot by her husband.
Little known Egyptian bellydancer Zuzu Mohamed dances in a scene from the 1952 film ‘Beit al Nattash’ which starred Ismail Yassin, Abdel Fatah el Kasary, Shadia, Zeinat Sedki and Abdel Salam al Nabulsi. The singer is Abbas al Blaidi who was not only a singer but also an accomplished oud player and composer. If you’re in a hurry, Zuzu Mohamed (who is fabulous!) comes onstage at .27.
Another dance performance by Zuzu Mohamed from the 1952 film ‘Beit al Nattash’ (بيت النتاش) which starred Abdel Fatah El Kosary, Shadia, Zeinat Sedki and Abdel Salam al Nabulsi.
Thank you to Karafantus for the ID.
A wedding scene from the 1959 Egyptian movie ‘Al Millionaire Al Faqir’ (The Poor Millionaire المليونير الفقير ). The comedy movie was written by Abo El Seoud El Ebiary and starred Ismail Yassin, Zeinat Sedki, Faiza Ahmed and Estefan Rosti. I LOVE the music but can’t think of the name of it. Can anyone help please?
