More information about Final Jeopardy:
Reagan played George Gipp (“The Gipper”) in the 1940 movie Knute Rockne, All-American; the world premiere of that film took place in South Bend, Indiana, the location of the University of Notre Dame.
A famous quote from that film, “Win one for the Gipper!” ended up being a campaign slogan of Reagan’s later in life.
