Glamorous, dark-haired (later blonde), dark-eyed, full-lipped Lebanese-born cabaret star and actress in almost 100 films. Born Jeanette al-Ferghali, she made her debut in The Clock Strikes Seven (1938), as a 10-year-old singing prodigy, but it was The Heart Has Its Reasons (1945) that made her a star. Among the more popular films that followed were Let Me Sing (1950), Ataba Square (1959), The Second Man (1960) and Soft Hands (1964). Her last film was the epic war musical Bosta in 2005. The ever larger-than-life Sabah (Arabic for morning) continued to perform into her eighties. She was nine times married.
