About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 12 July 2023
The shared name “City Lights” is used by both a classic 1931 Charlie Chaplin film and a bookstore that opened in 1953 on the West Coast.
Charlie Chaplin’s “City Lights,” a silent film in which he both directed and starred, is considered one of his finest works. In this film, Chaplin’s character, the Tramp, falls in love with a blind flower girl.
Meanwhile, the City Lights Bookstore, located in San Francisco, California, is a landmark in the literary world. Established by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Peter D. Martin, the independent bookstore took its name from Chaplin’s film. As a significant meeting place for the Beat generation, City Lights Bookstore has served as a platform for progressive thought and culture since its inception.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 12 July 2023
Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
