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

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.

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.
