More information about Final Jeopardy:

This is one of those Final Jeopardy! clues where the responses will likely be one of two movies: The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur. The 1956 Cecil B. DeMille film starred Charlton Heston as Moses. The line in question comes from Leviticus 25:10 and are spoken by Moses as he bids farewell at Mount Nebo, just after naming Joshua (John Derek) as leader.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • This is a generally moot point with how Final Jeopardy! worked out, but betting everything from Final Jeopardy! from second place is defensible if your read on the leader is such that you don’t think the leader will make the standard cover bet in Final. Obviously, that read wasn’t correct in this case (giving Mina the benefit of the doubt in this case as to whether or not that was her read).

  1. This is the first movie I saw at the theater that had two intermissions because it was that long.

  2. Mark Barrett | April 28, 2020 at 11:00 am |

    Two options? What about “The Grapes of Wrath”? 🙂

  3. Jay Rosenberg | April 28, 2020 at 11:47 am |

    I thought of Spartacus – an epic and a plea to freedom.

  4. Being unfamiliar with the film, I didn’t really know this Final. However I did recognize that the quote was part of a Bible verse, so I was halfway there! But as Alex Trebek would say, sorta right doesn’t count! 😂

    If we want to have an April ToCer, Sarah is the last chance for it. Also, Sarah is the first 3-day Jeopardy champion since Jessica Babbitt who played from March 11-16. Way to go Sarah! It is a person like Sarah to win multiple games and kind of be a “1-day curse repellent” if you know what I mean. It will take a good player to beat her and so on and so forth. Great come from behind win, Sarah!

  6. It’s good to see Sarah kickin’ it for a 3rd day.
    The DDs went almost for naught, and TOO MUCH $$$ left on the board.
    Keep on keepin’ on, Sarah!

    My broadcast had an ad that said ken’s first episode and the GOAT tournament will be aired next week.
