Dan risked dropping to $25,000 and answered correctly with B, Preparedness. Dan then walked away on this $500,000 question.
Eagle-eyed viewers of Gone with the Wind will notice all but which of the following anachronisms in the film?

Unsure and not wanting to lose $225,000 on a wrong answer, Dan took home his $250,000. The correct answer was D. Congratulations to Dan on his big $250,000 win.
Again, Dan is already the third $250,000 winner and we’re not even halfway through the season yet. It seems every week, give or take one or two, there’s at least $100,000 won. With several more months left in the season are we going to have another $250,000 winner? Or, better yet, could we finally reach the elusive million dollar question? Keep watching to find out. Again, congratulations to Dan.
