Answer: Vintage films with enduring stars. Question: What does the Jeopardy! host love to watch on tape?

The Razor’s Edge (1946, FoxVideo) ”This was Tyrone Power’s first film after fighting in World War II, and by coincidence he played a WWI vet who comes home and is searching for the truth in life. I viewed it with interest when I was in my teens and 20s, when I, too, was trying to find an answer in life for some things I had seen.”

Lonely Are The Brave (1962, MCA/Universal) ”It’s about an individualist who doesn’t want to be fettered by modern society and gets into trouble as a result. When I first saw it, I was 22, and I remember being filled with empathy for the guy. At the end, when they shoot his horse, the shock that registers on Kirk Douglas’ face really moved me.”
