Carol Adams (Carol Adams)

Carol Adams

Entertainer. Born Lurline Uller within the focal point of the entertainment industry, she caught the attention of a studio executive at the age of five which led to her taking up both dancing and acting lessons. Her experience in films could be traced back to appearances in the Mickey Rooney picture series “Mickey McGuire” which was followed with performances on the vaudeville circuit as well as in theater. She also had a stint touring as a member of “George White’s Scandals”. At the age of eighteen, she signed a contract with Twentieth Century Fox and over the next two years had various roles predominantly as a dancer notably in the picture “New Faces of 1937” (1937). By the early 1940s, Adams’s skills were so accomplished that she was regarded by many as being one of the top female tap dancers (alongside Ann Miller and Eleanor Powell) in the industry. After securing a contract under Republic Pictures, she was finally cast in acting roles of substance with Gene Autry “Ridin’ on a Rainbow” (1941), with Susan Hayward “Sis Hopkins” (1941) and Roy Rogers “Bad Man of Deadwood” (1941). She retired during the mid-1940s after marrying a studio executive and went onto raise a family. She appeared in roughly twenty feature films during the course of her career.
