When I was in Memphis in 1987, I bought a copy of this photo in a gift store. I had never seen it before and the homoerotic factor hit home a while later in a Georgia Straight newspaper interview, Jerry lee Lewis - at the time of the Dennis Quaid bio-flick, talked about him and Elvis riding bikes nude and that if anyone knew then what they had gotten up to - both of their careers would have been over.

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.
