Adams dropped from movies to tv and finally to Japanese movies, low art then/cult classics now.   Japan in the 1960s replaced Swiss watches with digital, eh.

Nick Adams died the week that Lisa Marie Presley was born, apparently of a drug overdose, but there were suspicious circumstances. A possible divorce looming and a typewriter given to Adams by James Dean was missing.
