Los Angeles native Catlin Adams made her film debut using her birth name Nira Barab in "Up in the Cellar" (1970), playing the daughter of Larry Hagman and Joan Collins who succumbs to the charms of a seductive young man. After decamping to NYC to study and begin a writing career, she adopted her new name and began to find work. Adams appeared in the TV-movie "The Panic in Echo Park" (NBC, 1971) before landing several roles in Off-Off-Broadway productions. Returning to Hollywood in the late 1970s, she was cast as dominatrix encountered by Steve Martin's "The Jerk" (1979) and as the traditional Jewish wife of Neil Diamond's "The Jazz Singer" (1980).
