The casting director must have had an active imagination—McIntyre was asked for a callback.
Before McIntyre took on the show, he had the slender build of an average bloke, with the approachable good looks of Ewan McGregor.
McIntyre was 32 years old when he took a job as an engineer on the Valhalla, a fishing trawler moored in Gloucester, Mass.
“I was doing this other film at the same time,” McIntyre explains.
For McIntyre and his colleagues, the project has been risky from the start.
With the thaw there came a groom every afternoon with a sleek and beautiful mare in case Miss McIntyre should care to ride.
Mr. McIntyre took a long breath and a resolution simultaneously.
"The clerk gave me your message when I came in, McIntyre," he explained as the car drove off.
McIntyre sank down with a deathly pallor on his countenance.
McIntyre turned in his chair and regarded the speaker with no friendly eye, but aside from that, took no part in the conversation.
