Naima Akef (7 October 1929 - 23 April 1966) was considered one of Egypt's greatest dancers; some people still think she was better than any other Egypt has produced. This is a poster for the 1949 Hussein Fawzi film Woman of Fire AKA Lahalibo designed by Ahmed Fouad and printed by Anwar printers of Cairo. Cinematography was by Mahmoud Nasr; story and screenplay were by the film's director, Hussein Fawzi; distribution was by Badi' Sobhi Films. The film tells the story of an Egyptian performer named Elham (AKA Lahalibo) who, much like Naima Akef herself, is part of a circus troupe that works the poor neighborhoods of Cairo. The story revolves around some familiar Egyptian social and family conflicts, always intensified in cases such as this one where the subjects are also coping with the additional social stigmas that go with being public entertainers.
