He Hesitated is a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Work In Progress. It was originally broadcast in 1987.


A list of clutter in Joe's house. The futility of cleaning. Entropy. Joe exchanges witty dialog with his mother, describes her life. Saving bugs in a pool. Saving baby ducks from a badger. A synopsis of The Incredible Shrinking Man. Intellectual discussion of the film at a party. Problem solving and linear progression taught in childhood - nihilism and soap operas.
