Showgirls and show-goers wept as the final curtain closed on a 32 1/2-year fixture on the Las Vegas Strip, with 400 former showgirls sharing in a poignant farewell for the "Lido de Paris." The show, imported from Paris in 1958, has drawn 19 million people for 22,000 performances here. Artistic differences and costs have prompted the Stardust Hotel, the "Lido's" home, to opt for a new musical production, scheduled to open in July.

Lucky Seven Limousine chauffeur Rena Warden carries a folded photocopy of her "Lido de Paris" showgirl photo to show passengers interested in the good old days along the Strip. Carefully unfolding the tattered sheet of paper, she smooths it out on the cocktail lounge table: It depicts a high-contrast likeness of a much younger Rena, draped in a dated costume of white mink and Persian lamb.
