#818-#820, two new old games and one slightly older old game newly completed (it had been missing most of the J! Round, including a clue that led to a ruling reversal, the text of which had been pretty accurately guessed at).
(Ron Trigueiro game 1.)
The only incomplete portion is some of the consolation prizes of the second game, Johnny's announcements of which were apparently omitted from the tape during recording to save space. We know about the oven, but there may have been more for the second-place player, and we don't know the third-place player's prize at all.
The FJ! fact in the first game appears three other times in the Archive, #1866, #3157, #7250 (with a close fact in a Daily Double in #7301). This FJ! is the only one of the three to also show up in the resource.
In the Jeopardy! Round of the second game, there were 0 Ws and only 1 TS. The round went by so fast that Alex was shocked when there were no more clues left to read.
Somehow I never knew of the Maureen O'Sullivan-Mia Farrow connection.
The third game had a player named Jack, a player named Jackie, and a category named Jackie Gleason.
I added Jackie's name and occupation and corrected the spelling of Ron's hometown to Caruthers (no double "R").
's Andi Brown from the first game, today. Leslie seems to be on LinkedIn. Google pulls up the obituary for Jerry Van Riper's wife of 22 years (d. 2016) with facts that confirm leads to a Facebook page and a school faculty page. Demeter is the only J!
contestant of that name and Googling pulls up a bridge winner's profile. Jackie from the third game seems to be tougher to confirm as still living. A 2015 obituary with a closely matching name, hometown, and approximate birth year shows a picture that doesn't seem to match, and the scant biographical details offered in the obit don't seem to line up with the contestant. A picture
on Google Images seems to be a match.
The first game had full credits, which I will post a transcript of to the credits transcripts thread.
I thought of Mr. Kendall for some reason during this interview exchange in the first game:
Alex: Jack Lowe from Rockville, Maryland. Says here your main hobby is vexillology? I've never heard of that.
Jack: Vexillology is the study and collecting of flags, come from the Latin word vexilla, which means "flag".
Alex: Of course!
Alex: Of course!
Jack: There are about 200 of us in North America, who--
Alex: And how many flags does the leading collector have?
Jack: Probably thousands.
Alex: Maybe there's a finite number, uh, of course--you get all the ca--countries currently, and then some--
Jack: Well, but there are more than national flags. There are civic flags and local flags and personal flags and historical flags and so on.
Alex: Oh, you--you guys really get into it.
Jack: Oh, yes.
Alex: All right, well. Nice having you with us.
Jack: Thank you.
