Hugh Hefner’s former ‘Girl Next Door’ Holly Madison is headlining a burlesque show in Las Vegas these days. She’s become so ubiqitous there, the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce had her recreate an iconic photo of Miss Atomic Bomb.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, “Above-ground nuclear testing was a major public attraction during the late 1950s, and hotels capitalized on the craze by hosting nuclear bomb watch parties, which usually included the dubbing of a chorus girl as Miss Atomic Bomb.”
Bomb watch parties? That does not sound safe.
Check out a photo of the last Miss Atomic Bomb, 1957’s Lee Merlin.
