----------------------------Original message----------------------------
I was reading this message and though I haven't seen this movie, I
noticed that they ride off on "Ludovics's" motorcycle. Where does the
name Ludovic come from, because in "A Clockwork Orange", Malcolm McDowell
undergoes the "Ludivico" treatment, a dastardly attempt by the gov't to
take away the right to personally choose between good and bad. Could
there be any relation between the use of the name Ludovico? Or perhaps it
is just a name for Ludwig. I don't know.  --- Matt Kassan
