Here’s a really wonderful video about the art and mind of George Andrus who is the inspiration for Otis in Some Days Are Better Than Others. While I could have written about George, as McCormick affectionately talked about him when we met, nothing I could compose would give you the same endearing and fun jaunt into George’s world. Otis was played by David Wodehouse, a retired cruise ship comedian, who gave a very poignant performance, but scenes in the film were actually shot in George’s house, using his set ups for the soap films, which you see in this clip.
Again, the film just opened in New York, for a very limited engagement, and seeing it, much like reading a Vonnegut novel, can make you a better human.
