The wonderful Azza Sherif (عزة شريف) dances in a wedding scene from the 1976 film ‘Nebtidi Menain Al Hikaya’ (‘Where do we begin the story?’ نبتدي منين الحكاية ) This film has the same title as the old Abdel Halim Hafez song but it’s totally unrelated.
In this scene we see the bride, played by Suheir Ramzi, fleeing her wedding leaving a confused crowd behind. As the film progresses she becomes blind, falls in love with her psychiatrist’s friend, her sight is restored and there’s a happy ending. The film also starred Saeed Saleh, Mimi Jamal and Samir Ghanem.
Azza Sherif is the bellydancer in this scene from the 1984 Egyptian film 'Wahda bi Wahda' (One by One or Tit for Tat واحدة بواحدة ). Azza Sherif featured in films until the mid 1990s. The film starred Adel Imam and Mervat Amin who are the couple sitting at the table, him with a beard, her with short dark hair.
Trivia: Also starring was Zizi Mustafa the dancer who is in a non-dancing role.
Azza Sharif dances in a scene from the 1984 film 'Al Laila al Mawouda' (Tonight Promised الليلة الموعودة). The movie starred Ahmed Zaki, Farid Shawki (the man in the blue suit), Nawal Fahmy (the woman with him), Karima Mokhtar and Nagwa Fouad.
This scene is from the 1972 Egyptian film ‘Khali Balak min Zuzu’ (Take Care of Zuzu (or) Look Out for Zuzu). The film starred Suad Hosni and the title of the film is also the title of the song they’re singing. The dancer is purple is Azza Sharif, the male singer is Shafik Galal, the woman in gold dancing is Nabila al Sayed and Souad Hosni is the female singer in pink in the first scene. The lady in black playing zills is Egyptian bellydance legend Tahiya Karioka. The film tells the story of Zuzu, who’s a student at university by day but works as a singer and dancer in her mother’s troupe by night. Her work as an entertainer is a secret. The title of the film is based on a common Egyptian colloquial expression ‘Khali balak min nafsak’ in English we might say ‘Take care of yourself’.
So, what’s the film all about? Zuzu falls in love with her professor and he breaks off his engagement to be with Zuzu. His former fiancee discovers that Zuzu is a bellydancer (very shameful) and hires Zuzu’s mum’s troupe for a big party at which Zuzu and her professor will be guests. Zuzu arrives, then the troupe appears, there’s mutual recognition, horror all round and Zuzu dances. The professor has to do some soul searching, he decides he loves her anyway, final dance number and general happiness ensues.
