So did I. One of the best categories in a long time.

I suspect that a couple of them have probably also heard of Witness for the Prosecution
"Sajak's house o' letters"
It should be Vanna's
House of Letters; she is, after all, the one who actually reveals the letters (and is also much nicer to look at).

Does Sony own a big interest in cable channels or production companies?
In short, no, though if Jeopardy! runs a clue that involves a film clip, odds are that it'll be from a Columbia film, since they're owned by Sony, who don't have to pay for their use (and maybe it'll also move a few DVD's off the shelves).

And I love how Alex made it sound like the locales of northeastern Africa that were mentioned in the clue were supposed to give it away; I feel pretty confident that all three contestants caught onto the Geography connection but had nothing better to guess.
Austin Powers wrote:Personally I got the FJ more because of the film (which has a stellar cast) than the book, which I've never so much as seen a copy of.
FJ was instantaneous, since I wrote the bonus materials on the DVD's of DEATH ON THE NILE, EVIL UNDER THE SUN
(the second Peter Ustinov-Poirot film) and THE MIRROR CRACK'D
(with Angela Lansbury as Miss Marple). Anchor Bay packaged the three as a Christie trilogy.
