The woman from H reminds me a lot of Jane Fonda from her Klute days. But she has no "H" movies.

H is a good one. You might never get it.

This is the image they used for Get Carter:

Wish I'd got here earlier.
Get Carter was one of the few I had without hesitation.

(It's an English film of course)

I'm wondering if the X film could be X, Y and Zee.
I know it had Caine in it again, and that could be Elizabeth Taylor.
Never seen it, but it came up as a quiz night question once. Very few films out there start with X until you get to the X-Men franchise!

I haven't looked it up, but I have a feeling it might be a 60s film.

Just H, V, and Y left.

Let me know when you want me to post hints...I'm thinking the picture it was based on should do it. I may have to block out names, though.

V intrigues me.
The coat and the stance remind me of Captain Jack Harkness

It is definitely an American movie, in a quintessential American genre.

I think I've got it purely from the word clue.
But I then had to check there was a 70s film of that name.
So I won't post it because that feels like cheating.

Oh, I don't think so. It's all part of the game, really. Unless you looked at the comments on the site it's not cheating.

Oops, I meant Y

I assume V is Vengeance

Artist's website here.

Also the image is from a cheezburger site and you can see it in the bottom left corner. If you check out the site you can get the answers from the comments, which I have done so I refrain from answering.
Moving the image and work in progress to the new page.

....

Except the image didn't make the move. grrrr

I got V, but I had to look on the Web cuz at first I thought it was a Clint Eastwoood movie, but then learned it was Burt Lancaster.
Since I sorta cheated, should I not post it?
