Filmed in India to represent 1920s Egypt. They make little attempt to conceal that in extras or costumes, which is kind of interesting.

It's also streaming on Netflix, so this is good advice.

This challenge has eight seven times the work but is still worth only one point.

Here are images from eight seven films arranged in random order. In this case, don't bother unshuffling them. Just list the titles in the order shown.

I'll put it in a spoiler because it is a largish image.

Spoiler!

I recognize at least three films' worth, but that's all I can determine.

Since this is a tough one I'm willing to confirm correct titles for individual frames.

If you're allowing partial credit on this, I got the following without research:

1) Dark City
2) The Rocketeer
4) Dark Water? (I'm not 100% on this one.)
5) Labyrinth
7) Noah

You bat .500 on that submission. We now have:

1. Dark City (1998)
2. The Rocketeer (1991)
3. A Beautiful Mind (2001)
4.
5. Labyrinth (1986)
6. Once Upon a Time in America (1984)
7. Noah (2014)

It was my astonishment in seeing her in Once Upon a Time in America that caused me to assemble this challenge. I remembered the character -- young Noodles spies on her dancing and dressing -- but did not realize who she became after her debut at about age 13.
