1. This scene is from the 1969 Egyptian comedy ‘Nashal Raghm Anfoh’ (A Pickpocket Despite His Nose نشال رغم أنفه). The film starred Nadia Lutfi as a movie star named Samia and Amin el Heneidi (1925-1986) as Sayed, the pickpocket of the film’s title.
    The clip starts with dancing by Alexandria born Zeinat Olwi (1930-1988) who’s accompanied by singer Shafik Galal. The man at the bar wearing a white waistcoat is actor Tawfik al Deqn. The second dancer is Katkoota (قطقوطة). I’m pretty sure the third dancer who’s performing at the wedding is Zizi Mustafa though any confirmation would be much appreciated. The singers in the wedding scene are ‘The 3 Stagelights’ (“Tholaathi Adwaa al Masrah” فرقة ثلاثي أضواء المسرح التي). Of this trio Samir Ghanem (the tall bald one) went on to have a hugely successful career as a solo comedy actor, George Sedhom (the one in the suit) retired many years ago due to on-going ill health and El Deif Ahmad (the young one) died in 1970.
    Trivia: Dancers may be interested to know that Nadia Lufti, the star of this movie, later played Badia Masabni in the 1975 Egyptian bio-pic of Masabni’s life. Fouad al Mohandes played the part of famous Egyptian actor Naguib el Rihani who was Masabni’s husband from 1925 until 1949.

  2. Zizi Mustafa dances in a scene from the 1974 Egyptian film 'Al Muhim al Hob' (Love is Important or Love is What Counts المهم الحب). The film's a comedy and starred Adel Imam, Nahed Sharif and Emad Hamdi. Keep your eye on the 'conductor' he's a show on his own :-)
    Trivia: Comedian Samir Ghanem is also in this film. He wears a wig and moustache that make him look for all the world like the late Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy.

  3. Zizi Mustafa dances in the 1985 film ‘Saad al Yatim’ (Saad the Orphan سعد اليتيم) which starred Ahmed Zaki, Najlaa Fathy, Farid Shawki and Mahmoud Morsy. There are two dance scenes in this clip, first a party and the second is a "blink and you’ll miss it" scene where she uses a shamadan.

  4. Egyptian bellydancer Zizi Mustafa in a scene from the 1988 film ‘Makhalib Imra’a’ (A Woman’s Claws) which starred Mervat Amin and Ezzat El Alaili. The song is ‘Yalla bina yalla’, which was sung originally by Sherifa Fadel then made popular by Mohammed Fouad.
