Daily Question – 19

Released in the year of their deaths, which movie was dedicated to the memory of these two people?

The 1997 movie ‘Good Will Hunting’ was dedicated to the memory of the poet Allen Ginsberg (Visual 1) and the writer William S. Burroughs (Visual 2), both of whom had died earlier that year. 

Cracked by 17 of you! In order – Akila, DP, CR, zizzyphus, Sankhya, Guneet, vijaysarathy, Thomas Masun, bobo, anannyad, anon-on-narkotix, Srinivasan Rajagopal, BoFi, Thejaswi Udupa, kasthuri, citibank(rupt) and Wasi Manazir. Well done!

  4. Dear Uncle:

    Sorry for being absent yesterday, uncle. I have faxed you a leave letter and a doctor’s note.

    The answer is “Good Will Hunting,” dedicated to Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs. That movie in turn inspired the classic “Good Will Humping,” dedicated to Sumo.

    Kind regards,
    Thomas Masun

  5. These are Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs who died in 1997. No idea of the movie though – perhaps As Good as it Gets.
