Nick Adams seems like a quite tragic figure, having passing away from a drug overdose. He was a good friend of James Dean. He is pictured above in 1956 with mementos from James Dean. Nick Adams wishes for 1956 were:
- As a person I would like to find some way to thank all the people who have been so wonderful to me during the past years and have made my dreams come true.
- As a performer I would like to continue to be honest and sincere in my interpretation of any roles assigned to me. I want to be respected not only as a comedian but also as a dramatic actor.
- As a citizen I would like to visit and talk to juvenile delinquents in reform schools and try to get across to them that they can make something of themselves. I would especially like to help boys who are convinced that they are bad and that there is no help for their future.
I sure hope he was able to speak to juvenile delinquents and import them with hope for the future, but I have no idea if that happened. Wonderful wishes.
Up next - Lana Turner & Lex Barker as well as William Bishop
