This is a clip from the 1957 film Fata Ahlami (My Dream Guy) starring Abdel Halim Hafez and Abd el Salam el Naboulsi and featuring a 17 year old Farida Fahmy dancing with Mahmoud Reda. Curiously, in the film credits her name is listed as NELDA and not as Farida Fahmy. She and Mahmoud Reda play the roles of dancers at this particular casino. The film credits also list Ali Reda (Mahmoud Reda's brother) as the choreographer/dance coach.

And much more here!
