I got the Final Jeopardy answer tonight

About the 30 seconds of film?

I'm old enough to remember (vividly) that film. So is hubby but he didn't get it.

He was a bit chagrined that he didn't.... We are both of the same generation...

That iconic moment in history is burned into my brain...

3. Not saying YOU don't remember this, but an interesting thing some don't know about it

Is that almost NOBODY actually saw (outside LE/Intel) the Zapruder film until it was shown on 3/6/1975 on the TV show Good Night America, hosted by ... Geraldo Rivera.

6. Interesting.

Only six years later, the videotape from the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan would receive saturation play on every network, 24/7 for a week. Regular motion, slo-mo, over and over and over...

14. I had a hard time remember the name. I thought, "It rhymes with Magruder,"

and I knew exactly what film they were referring to, but had a hard time coming up with Zapruder. I think I got as far as "Zagruder". I needed a few more seconds.

I don't always do well with Jeopardy, but a month or so ago, I got all of the Final Jeopardy questions one week.

it couldn't possibly be anything else.
