Nomi, a young drifter, arrives in Las Vegas to become a dancer and soon sets about clawing and pushing her way to become the top of the Vegas showgirls.
The name "Nomi Malone" came from Joe Eszterhas's wife's nickname, Nomi (her real name is Naomi). He chose "Malone" because he thought of Nomi as being "alone" in the world.
Hop in, pard!
Nomi Malone: Where are you going?
Jeff: Vegas! Come on! This is your lucky day!
During the infamous pool-sex scene, there are several shots in which it can be plainly seen that Kyle MacLachlan is still wearing white underwear.
