It pre-dates M7 by quite a few years, was filmed partly in Death Valley and has a colorful, 2-word title.

I think a book this time.

Classic literature. Banned in Britain in 1915. Has had a movie based on it.

Yes, it was the 1915 ban that gave it away.

OK.

A movie. Action/comedy. The FBI, the Mob and independent contractors pursue a mathematician.
