More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Sun Also Rises is the debut novel of Ernest Hemingway, about American and British expats who travel to Pamplona to watch bullfights and the famed running of the bulls. It was based upon Hemingway’s own trip to Spain in 1925. The book was adapted into a 1957 film starring Tyrone Power and Ava Gardner; Hemingway insisted upon Gardner being cast as Lady Brett Ashley.
