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

Shortly before his death, Nick bought a plane ticket with his own money and flew to Rome to co-star with Aldo Ray in a sci-fi horror movie called "Murder in the Third Dimension". Once he got there he found out no one had told him the project had been scrapped.

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.
