Nick Adams Facts
He joined the U.S. Coast Guard in 1952, allegedly to avoid being drafted into the Army during the Korean War.

The son of Peter Adamshock and Catherine Kutz, Nick's father was a Ukrainian-born anthracite coal miner. Despite being broke, the family left town when Nick was five years old, after his uncle was killed in a mining accident, and wound up in Jersey City, New Jersey.

He is one of four actors typically named in connection with the "Rebel Without a Cause (1955) Curse", a widely repeated urban legend.
