Julie Adams was an actress who left an indelible mark in pop culture with her performance as the Gill-man’s object of desire, Kay Lawrence, in “Creature from the Black Lagoon.” The 1954 horror movie was a hit and although she didn’t appear in its two sequels, she embraced her status as a scream queen. The title of the biography she published in 2011 was “The Lucky Southern Star: Reflections from the Black Lagoon.”

Adams was born in Waterloo, Iowa, and spent much of her youth in Arkansas. She won the “Miss Little Rock” pageant before moving to Hollywood where she was signed by Universal and appeared in a slew of westerns. Her co-stars included top leading men like Jimmy Stewart, Rock Hudson, and Charlton Heston.
