Correct response: What is Psycho?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The items in the clue were all used for the iconic shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 masterpiece, Psycho; chocolate syrup was used to emulate the blood in the black-and-white film, the casaba melon was found to be perfect for the sound effects used for the stabbing, and Playboy model Marli Renfro was Janet Leigh’s body double. Still considered to be one of the most iconic scenes in the history of cinema, it also literally changed how people watched movies. Because the female lead (Leigh) was killed early on in the film, Hitchcock required that exhibitors not allow anyone to enter the theatre after the movie had begun (lest they start asking where Janet Leigh was); this then trained audiences to arrive for the beginning of other films.
