Fred Andrle on Seconds

Mon, Nov 2, 2009

On Friday, November 13, join us to honor the career of Fred Andrle, the longtime host of WOSU's Open Line.

Andrle had one of the most beloved and familiar voices on the Columbus airwaves until his retirement in May 2009. Among the great public affairs programs in the country, Open Line covered the most relevant issues of the day. But Andrle always carved out occasional slots to discuss another of his interests, the movies. Join us this evening to hear him talk about one of his favorites, John Frankenheimer's Seconds.

Fred Andrle writes:

Seconds is a movie about a man who is out of touch with his own soul, so out of touch that he has no idea how to recover that connection. So he enlists a corporation to assist him, with predictable results. I selected the movie because it's a cautionary tale for any of us who might, from time to time, be out of synch with our most essential self. An easy state to fall into in our modern, warp-speed society, where productivity is often valued far more than spirit.
Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
