Intimate Power – Aimée Dubucq de Rivéry


Aimée Dubucq de Rivéry, a young french school girl life changed as she was on her way home and her ship was captured by pirates and she was sold as a slave or as a harem girl to the sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Abdul Hamid. She changed their way of life. I’ve read somewhere that this movie was shot on actual locations and that the costumes were authentic designs.

Harem Christmas

A man who lands in a Moorish sultanate is given a harem as a gift. Rex Harrison is in this.
This dance sequence is from “King Richard and the Crusaders” (1954). The dancer in this segment is the wonderful Nejla Ates, who was born in Turkey in 1933 and became a highly trained belly dancer. She also appeared in “Son of Sinbad.”
