Nick Adams Facts
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 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.
