Nick Adams Facts
Gained early attention doing impressions of movie stars such as James Cagney and Marlon Brando.

On the night of Feb 7, 1968, Nick was supposed to have dinner with Erwin Roeder, his lawyer and friend. Nick never showed up. Concerned, Roeder then went to Adams' home, found the actor's car in his garage, broke a window to enter the house, and discovered the actor dead in his bedroom.

He once worked at the Warners Theater in Beverly Hills as a doorman, usher and maintenance man, but was fired after putting his own name up on a marquee board as a promoting stunt. He also freely used his friendships with James Dean and Elvis Presley for self-promotion. He once claimed he was being stalked by a crazed female James Dean fan and had himself photographed at Dean's grave, pensively clutching flowers.
