NOW that Mayor Giuliani is a lame duck, his pal Elliot Cuker is reviving his acting career.
Cuker, who made his millions in vintage cars and cigar bars, kept his hand in show biz by helping Hizzoner produce his rebuttal each year at the Inner Circle. This year, for the first time, Cuker put together a film starring Rudy in a variety of costumes. "I like seeing the Mayor is dresses" says Cuker. It might have inspired the short that President Clinton made for the White House Correspondents Dinner. Cuker also directed the 12-minute flick the Republican Party screened in Albany last weekend after Hillary Clintonís performance. Hanging around so many politicians has rubbed off on Cuker. He's been investigated more times than Vincent "Buddy" Cianci, Jr.
