Felicia Atkins
Felicia Akins was one of the most famous showgirls in Las Vegas since photographs featuring her have been seen worldwide advertising the Folies Bergere. Felicia was part of the "Folies Bergere" cast since the day it opened in 1959. Amoung the Austrailian beauties many titles are "Miss Down Under", "Miss Stars & Stripes", "Miss Showgirl of America" and "Miss April" in the Playboy centerfold 1958.

She was one of the most gorgeous and glamorous showgirls of all time. She was also one of the best Playboy Playmates of all time. She had a cameo appearance in one movie that starred, Jerry Lewis.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to contact Ms. Atkins? I became briefly familiar with her while living in Las Vegas during the early 70's. She was so gorgeous I couldn't open my mouth to talk to her.
Thanks.

I really need to talk or write her before we both get too old. Very important.
Thanks.

I worked with Felicia at The MGM Grand which was bought by Bally's back in the 1980's. I was a cocktail waitress when Al Carroll ran the department. Felicia and I have had many good times together. I am sure she is still beautiful inside and out.

I was in Vegas (81) and I just happen to stop in this bar for a drink and it was this beautiful woman serving me (Felicia Atkins)
I started talkinf to her and she told me about her career as a showgirl she could have written a book about being a showgirl.

"VINTAGE 8X10's Felicia Atkins" by: Rolf
@ 02:29:17 pm on December 27 2008
I have some incredible vintage 8x10's of Felicia at I think the Tropicana. One looks just like the one posted her. Photographer Burt Jergen it looks like. Another by Michael Nagro Used for Vue mag June 1965. She looks amazing!

Hi all, I met Felicia in 1977 in the Italian restaurant she was working as a bar tender/hostess...we had a great weekend together with her friends and mine...this was in 1977 just after she retired from the Follies. If you read this, Felicia, you can get a hold of me at bluebossa44@hotmail.com

"RE: VINTAGE 8X10's" by: rsh
@ 11:02:24 pm on April 16 2009
I took the picture here while @ the 'Las Vegas News Bureau'. It's "One Of A Kind"! But Felicia was a very popular photography subject and the Follies a long running Las Vegas stage production that she so photo graciously represented. It's very likely that she was shot by many photographers.

FYI- I knew Michael Nagro. He had the showroom photo concession @ the Tropicana, BUT I'm not to sure about Burt Jergins.

Looking for vintage Felicia Atkins pictures.

""Vintage Prints"" by: rsh
@ 10:29:10 am on April 26 2009
What exactly do you mean by "Vintage Prints"?

Do you mean OLD prints of old pictures, Or
NEW prints of old pictures?

OLD prints are worth allot more money and will only last so long (some of which has already gone by). But the fading can sometimes make them a little more valuable.

NEW prints of old pictures last much longer and cost much less.

Both are available.

Dated Felicia a few times while she was lead showgirl at the Tropicana and she later worked at the Jockey Club when I was general manager. Nothing but great memories of a gorgeous and terrific lady. So very sorry she is failing.

"Finding another Showgirl" by: meadejon@hotmail.com
@ 06:00:53 pm on January 6 2013
I was hoping perhaps Felicia would be able to help me remember another showgirl of her era--Marilyn Marx, but it seems that wouldn't be possible now. Sad all around. I was a young returning Marine from Vietnam in 1967 and Marilyn Marx befriended me for three days and it meant a lot and I just wanted to find her, thank her, and play catch-up. Marilyn was with the Follies, as well and was one of the most popular showgirls on the strip. She and the Sands put me up, entertained me, feed me, introduced me to other entertainers, and well, for a 21-year-old kid fresh from the war, it was like a fantasy. As it turned out, she had lost someone in Vietnam and, well, I guess I filled some void, although it was not romantic, but very platonic. She acted like my big sister, brought me to see Nancy Wilson at the Saraha, took me to the top of the Mint and even taught me how to be a gentleman. I want to just find her, thank her, do something special for her...I am sure our reunion would mean as much to her as me. I bet Felicia would know her. Anyway, if anyone reading this can help, please do so. I wish the best for Felicia.
