Gina Wilhelm Actress – Elizabeth Berkeley
As the Christina Aguilera movie “Burlesque” gets ready to open in late November, thoughts turn to another movie exotic dancer, Elizabeth Berkeley in “Showgirls.”
In the 1995 movie, Berkeley plays a drifter named Nomi who makes her way to Las Vegas to become a dancer and proceeds to strive to become the lead showgirl in a hotel revue.
In her struggle to become the star, her morals and soul are put to the test.
“Burlesque” opens on November 24, and we’ll know then how similar the two movies are.
