Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: I feel as though there are going to be a lot of viewers in New York City tonight that are very angry with WABC when they realize that WABC pre-empted Jonathan Fisher’s loss to air overnight. In case you’re wondering, you can find yesterday’s game recap here. In WABC’s defense, the city’s mayoral debate is the sort of item in the public interest that television stations are required to cover as a condition of receiving a broadcast license. That will be little consolation to these viewers, who were likely unaware that the episode got aired overnight. That being said: we have a new champion in Nancy Donehower, who gets to face two new challengers in Tyler Rhode and Jennifer Mosher.
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.

Correct response: Who is Anna Karenina?
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.)
Leo Tolstoy’s famous novel Anna Karenina has been adapted into film multiple times; Greta Garbo played the title character twice, in 1927’s Love and 1935’s Anna Karenina. Vivien Leigh starred in the 1948 version, whereas Tatiana Samoilova starred in a 1967 Russian version directed by Aleksandr Zarkhi and Keira Knightley starred in the 2012 version directed by Joe Wright.
One note about how the show’s writers write the clues in order to provide hints: I would say that Tatiana Samoilova is generally unknown to Western film audiences. However, the show’s writers deliberately chose to include her in the clue because the Russian name would be a hint that will point viewers and players alike in the direction of a female character from Russian literature; I would say her inclusion takes the clue from one that only film experts (or hardcore fans of Keira Knightley) would be able to get in 30 seconds to one that is of the perfect difficulty for Final Jeopardy.
