Notes:

Inspired by the current tournament. I don't think we have this subject already.I'm hoping that other people (Quiz, are you up for it?) can contribute. I'm including only real (not fictional) names of continents, countries, states, cities, towns, villages and geographical features. Looking at the other subjects with a similar set-up, the question only seems to go one way e.g What film title is missing the colour.....

I'm not sure about the inclusion of one-word titles e.g. Brazil, Chicago etc,

Have I got this right? I'm very happy to edit this post following an Editor's instruction.

Thanks for this. The length of the gap needs to be  _____  you can copy and paste this one into the spaces to make it easier. If this is to be included in randoms all the films need to be well known. Most of these I have heard of but there are a few that I don't know. If they are well known and it is just my lack of  knowledge (see my scores in the movies tourney to see how bad this is) then that's fine, just leave them in. Other than that it looks good. Just post below when you have it ready. If you have any extra info like the year for example it would be welcome but it is not essential and you can add this later individually if you prefer.

This type works best with the one way question but I sort that when I put it in.
