More information about Final Jeopardy:

The Lend-Lease Act was the FDR administration’s answer to remaining officially neutral in World War II, but still providing aid to allies such as Great Britain in its fight against Nazi Germany. Prior to the Act, the U.S. was operating on a “cash and carry” basis, where countries could purchase supplies in cash and ship them on their own ships back home. However, Churchill’s Britain was running out of money. With Lend-Lease, payment for the supplies could be deferred and could come in any form FDR deemed sufficient. This was able to give the United States extra time to prepare for entry into World War II.

  1. This is the first one I ever got by just looking at the category and not even seeing the question! Not sure how much other alliterative legislation is well-known, so maybe I was lucky.

    • How about the Social Security Act of 1935? 🙂

      Though giving the related year(s) allowed me to quickly get to the correct response.

    • Rachel Burns | March 25, 2020 at 11:49 am |

      Rachel Burns here. When I saw the category, I was certain the correct response was the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. When I saw the clue, I actually had to think about it!

      Great games from Adam and Nick!

      • Frank Smith | March 25, 2020 at 5:23 pm |

        You made a very nice comeback attempt yourself. I knew with scores like those that anyone could’ve taken the W.

  2. When I saw the category I immediately thought of the Brady Bill, the year given made lend lease obvious.

  3. And another new champ, congrats. Just the years made this kind of VERY easy imo, plus alliterative….Surprised this was not a clean sweep.

    I am so glad I found your website. The president came on at 4:55 CT and I did not get to hear the clue, what the answer was or know who one!!!!! I wish he would come on at the hour after a show is done. That way I can watch Jeopardy and then I can turn him off!!!!

  5. Andy, I love this website, and have great respect for your integrity and fairness in dealing with people’s comments. I’m surprised and a bit disappointed that you would post such a blatantly political statement (even if you agree with her).
