Good morning! Today is Friday, April 23, 2021 (Season 37, Game 150), the fifth day of Anderson Cooper’s hosting stint. So far, $93,801 has been raised for the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Haiti. Next week’s games will be raising money for Justice Defenders. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Movie Title Characters):
In this 2012 film set just before the Civil War, a German dentist declares that the title character’s surname is Freeman
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Kimberly Stunkel, a field sales manager from Nashville, Tennessee
|Dan Singer, a United States Marine from Virginia Beach, Virginia
|Kelly Donohue, a bank examiner from Winthrop, Massachusetts (1-day total: $26,801)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Kelly took victory in last night’s game thanks to a late-game Daily Double. He was only just above average on the signalling device, though — he’ll need to be stronger in that respect in order to increase his chances of victory today.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2021 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Django Unchained was a 2012 Quentin Tarantino film starring Jamie Foxx as Django; the film was envisioned as a Spaghetti Western set in the American South. Christoph Waltz won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Dr. Schultz, who frees Django in the film in exchange for knowledge of the whereabouts of the outlaw Brittle brothers. Tarantino won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the film. However, Tarantino was heavily criticized by many in the Black community for his inappropriately high use of racial slurs in the film.
