The part of Wally Worthington was originally intended for Colin Irving, the author's son. The movie took so many years to get made that eventually he was too old for the part. Instead he plays Major Winslow who delivers the news of Wally's disapperance.

John Irving's first appearance was in a film based on his novel " The World According To Garp." He played a wrestling ref, and actually had a line, which was something like, (sic) "good moves, but they beat you on the take-downs." This appearance was very appropriate, since Irving wrestled at Exeter, and UNH, and then as a post-grad at Iowa. His two sons wrestled, and Irving actually was a ref for much of their young careers. :-)
