‘Millionaire’ Follow-up

November 19, 1999 at 8:59 am by xoanon  - 

A follow-up on the ‘Frodo’ questions on The ‘millionare’ game show last night.

I live in Tulsa, where the fellow on “Who wants to be a Millionaire” is from who missed the Frodo question (His name is Toby ____). He was on the radio this morning, where he said that he knew Frodo was from LOTR. He was thinking that it had been a while since Tolkien had died, though, and didn’t know if maybe the copyright had run out. He didn’t want to risk losing the $250,000 he’d already won on a guess. If he’d been visiting theonering.net, he’d have known that the family still holds the copyright!

Thanks to Terry for the tip!
