Character actor, Stanley Adams, was born on Apr 7, 1915 in New York City, NY. Adams appeared in over 195 film and TV roles. Adams died at the age of 62 on Apr 27, 1977 in Santa Monica, CA and was cremated and his ashes scattered at sea.
Stanley Adams is probably best known, in film, as millionaire Rusty Trawler in Breakfast at Tiffany's starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. Other notable film roles include Rusty in The Errand Boy (starring Jerry Lewis, and George Peppard) and Juan in Lilies of the Field (starring Sidney Poitier). Although his roles in film were relatively minor, he did have quite a robust career on TV, appearing on many TV shows during the 1960s and 1970s, including The Odd Couple, The Twilight Zone, The Addams Family, Petticoat Junction, The Dick Van Dyke Show -- and most famously as Star Trek's tribble-dealing Cyrano Jones in "The Trouble with Tribbles" episode.(Source: article by Annmarie Gatti for Classic Movie Hub).
