What is the Final Jeopardy clue and answer for the Aug. 12, 2021 episode?
Calling all film buffs! The category for the Aug. 12 Final Jeopardy clue is “Blockbuster Movies.” The clue reads, “Based on a 1974 novel, this film has been described as combining An Enemy of the People and Moby Dick.”
While viewers won’t be able to find out if their answer is correct until the episode airs, Jeopardy! fanatics believe that the answer is: “What is Jaws?”
The novel ‘Jaws’ was written by Peter Benchley.
For folks that enjoy book-to-film adaptations, Jaws tends to land high on the must-watch list. Based on the 1974 novel written by Peter Benchley, Jaws focuses on a fear many tourists have: sharks.
In the film, the mayor refuses to close down the beaches, even though there is a strong possibility that people could get hurt or sustain fatal injuries. He also believes that the death that set the events of Jaws in motion is a boat accident and not a shark attack. Meanwhile, three men head out on the open water to investigate and come face-to-face with the giant killing machine.
