Arden was famous for bring the Lido to Las Vegas. His retirement home in Palm Springs was called Casa Lido. Arden decided he was better suited to organize and direct dance shows rather than perform in them. Arden's dance troupe headlined the Desert Inn's opening in 1950. He later developed the Lido de Paris show (based on the show in the Lido in Paris), which ran at the Stardust from 1958 to 1991, and the Jubilee! show at Bally's.[1][2] Donn Arden was credited with developing the Las Vegas showgirl image — a statuesque dancer in sequins, feathers and wearing a tall headpiece.
