Penn State graduate student Bill Cossen got into a little jeopardy with a “Final Jeopardy” question about “Saving Mr. Banks” in the “Movies about Movies” category.

Cossen went into the final round of “Jeopardy!” with a $400 lead and $11,600. But the 2013 Tom Hanks movie about Walt Disney was his undoing, and he ended up with a mere $399.

But his performance the previous three nights netted him more than $50,000.
