Jeopardy! Round

(Alex: A few words of explanation, if I may, about this last category. IN OTHER WORDS... came as a result of a big foo-foo that occurred at the Disney Studios last year, when the employees staged a minor revolt when they changed the title of Basil of Baker Street to The Great Mouse Detective and they sent out a memo, tongue-in-cheek, very much so, about what would happen if they changed the titles of all the other great Disney films. So, IN OTHER WORDS, we'll give you an answer and you have to come up with the title of the Disney film as we know it.)
