Good morning! Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Hollywood Legends) for Wednesday, April 28, 2021 (Season 37, Game 153):
This director was quoted as saying, “I believe I can take any 60 pages of the Bible and make a great picture”
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Leah Caglio, a product manager originally from Phoenix, Arizona
|Hari Parameswaran, a college student from Xenia, Ohio
|Dana Schumacher-Schmidt, an English professor from Tecumseh, Michigan (1-day total: $20,600)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Dana played an incredible game yesterday to dethrone a three-time champion. She definitely has the skills to win multiple games. (I hope I haven’t jinxed anything with this.)
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.

The quote was said by famed Hollywood film director Cecil B. DeMille during publicity interviews for the 1949 film Samson and Delilah; at the time, it was already his third Biblical film (after the 1923 version of The Ten Commandments and 1927’s The King of Kings); his final film was a 1956 partial remake of The Ten Commandments.
