So badly fitting. Did they not know how or did they not care?

Thou shalt not grab the dancer and kiss her tummy.:naghty:

Amazing how many of these performances display the belief that belly dance consists mostly of twitching one's hips and waving one's arms.

So... I went looking for anything older from Hollywood that didn't fit that description or just offend me completely. So far I've found one. It was filmed either in Monaco or Turkey and I don't recognize the dancer. I did find some rather nice dancing in "From Russia with Love".

You totally have me looking through old clips now.

I also stumbled across the scene in Wild Wild West. I had forgotten it.

My computer somehow doesn't let me see these clips but over the years I've seen some real crazy ones. Leave it to Hollywood to portray it incorrectly :)
