McIntyre, Frank J.


McIntyre, Frank J.
(1879-1949)
   Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the stocky comedian worked as a newspaper reporter before making his acting debut in 1901 in Rome, New York, as Crumpet in The Honorable John Grigsby. That play took him to Broadway when it opened at the Manhattan Theatre on 28 January 1902. He soon achieved stardom with notable performances in Becky Sharp with Minnie Maddern Fiske (1903), in Strongheart (1905 and for his 1907 London debut), and many others until he turned to radio in the 1930s. Above all, McIntyre was identified with the title role of drummer Bob Blake in The Traveling Salesman (1908), the hit comedy that ran for 280 performances.
