Spellings Gets Left Behind
U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings was trounced on the Celebrity Jeopardy edition of the game show by Michael McKean, the actor who played “Lenny” on the sitcom “Laverne & Shirley.” Among the questions Spellings answered correctly? The final jeopardy question in the Book to Movie category: Among the many movies that have premiered at Radio City Music Hall, this was a 1962 film based on a novel by Harper Lee.
Answer: “What is To Kill a Mockingbird?”
She got it right, but made a conservative wager of $1,500. She finished in second place with $11,100 to McKean’s $50,000.
