More information about Final Jeopardy:

Tommy Lee Jones played US Marshal Samuel Girard in the 1993 film The Fugitive alongside Harrison Ford’s Dr. Richard Kimble.

It was based in the TV series which ran from 1963 to 1967, in which David Janssen played Kimble and Barry Morse portrayed Girard. Kimble had been wrongfully convicted of the first-degree murder of his wife, but escapes from death row and becomes a fugitive (the circumstances differ between TV series and film).

10 Comments on "Today’s Final Jeopardy – April 5, 2018"

  1. Scott William | April 5, 2018 at 9:51 am |

    I greatly enjoyed the film “The Fugitive”, and Tommy Lee Jones’s performance in particular. I also liked Tommy Lee Jones’s work in another early 90’s action drama called “Under Siege”. It was the year before The Fugitive, and has the same director, Andrew Davis. Of the two films, I prefer “The Fugitive”. I wonder if Mr. Davis really enjoyed “hide and seek” as a child. Both these films have a strong element of finding people who would prefer to stay hidden.

    • He should have been nominated for Coal Miner’s Daughter. Sissy Spacek deserved her Oscar (although a tie with Mary Tyler Moore that year would have been great too), but Jones was just as terrific.

  2. Of course Jeopardy! is subjective to experience, but I thought FJ was very easy today. I realize all three contestants are fairly young, but I expect that two, if not three, contestants answer correctly. I am in the same age range, and I had the answer immediately.

    • Lucky for Kristen Jack’s subjective experience didn’t rate today, losing by a dollar can never be fun, especially with that buck left on the table.

        YES! Kristin’s wager was more than risky imo….
        But, as old William said, “All well that ends well”

    • Scott William | April 5, 2018 at 1:04 pm |

      Unless Jack shaves his beard, he may have set himself up for a lifetime of “YOU FIND THIS MAN!” jokes, aimed at him by his real-life acquaintances.

  3. I remember the 60’s well! Shows my Mom was devoted to were Lassie, Sea Hunt, and The Fugitive. Brings up good memories, especially Sea Hunt and The Fugitive. Good times, those 60’s!

    • Richard Rolwing | April 6, 2018 at 12:25 am |

      The Fugitive is running (literally and figuratively!) on MeTV (if you get the station where you are) along with tons of old shows from the 50s, 60s and 70s…(This is NOT a commercial…!)

  4. The infamous one-armed man. The two series from that era i couldn’t get enough of were “The Fugitive” and “Dark Shadows”, a “gothic soap opera” my research tells me…

    • I loved Dark Shadows…it was on 4 in the afternoon, channel 7 (NY), and I remember being mad that my one day a week piano lesson was at 4. Memories.
