Correct response: Who is (Abraham) Zapruder?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Abraham Zapruder was making a home movie of the Presidential motorcade as it passed through Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963, and unexpectedly captured what is believed to be the best-known footage of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Shortly after the assassination, Life Magazine outbid CBS for the rights to the film, but the rights were sold back to the Zapruder estate in 1975 amidst a royalties dispute (Zapruded died in 1970). After a 1992 law that required all records of the Kennedy assassination be transferred to the National Archives, the government was ordered to pay his heirs $16 million.
