Here are a few kisses that are famous:
But which famous kiss is not well known? That kiss is the one between former Egyptian movie start Mona Fuad and her co-star. It was the first "on-screen kiss" in an Arabic film. This kiss forever changed the Arabic culture. Public affection between a man and woman was not only discouraged but almost forbidden at the time.
Mona Fuad was an Egyptian movie star during 1940s Egypt and later in America she continued her film career in such things as 'The Ten Commandments' and 'The Spy.'
Of that Egyptian movie kiss Mona said:
Mona Fuad was born in Alexandria, Egypt and, at age 16, won a national beauty contest and would go on to become a future Miss Egypt. Her career then turned to film and she appeared in both Egyptian and American films. She speaks six languages and lives in the U.S. where she founded the first acrylic nail salon in Dallas.
Mona recently published a novel titled: 'Cairo Unzipped' which was reviewed here at Magic City on January 17, 2014 by Martha Stevens-David.
The novel based in Egypt in the early 1940's amidst the turmoil of the 2nd World War. All of Europe is teaming with one disaster after another and as the war expands, Egypt is inundated with people trying to escape persecution and death by the Nazis. This story focuses on Layla, a young girl and what happens to her and her friend as they struggle to survive in a war-torn country.
