Shira's Mini-Review

To Purchase from Amazon U.S. Canada
Year Released 1964
Dancer Lulu Porter
Shira's Feedback Hooray, a "real" belly dancer!

The scene with dancing is about 5 minutes long. Tony Randall's character is entertaining his fiancée and her parents for dinner, and his genie conjures a tent scene for the occasion complete with dancing girls. First a group of dancers emerges, doing very simple belly dance traveling moves such as hip-sway walking and step + hip lift. They wear costumes foreshadowing the I Dream of Jeannie television show and dance for about 60 seconds. Then Lulu Porter comes out in a belly dance costume with coin bra/belt set and chiffon skirt and does a performance that goes for about 1 1/2 minutes. It offers a taste of what belly dancing was like in the U.S. in the 1960's.
