The Clock - A movie puzzle that has me stumped!

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

The first question for me is what Spielberg film the moon at 6 is supposed to signify... the rest are pretty self evident (though I'm not sure why Crystal Skull is in the center). There's no correlation between number position and year of release.

Not sure that is a moon. It certainly isn't Earth's moon. Wondering if it is the boulder from Raiders?

Not sure if it has anything to do with female leads, but if so--

3 - Laura Dern
5 - Kate Capshaw
6 - Karen Allen
7 - Drew Barrymore (or Dee Wallace)
8 - Lorraine Gary
9 - Sally Field
C - Karen Allen (again)

Pretty sure #5 is one of the mystical Sankara stones from Temple of Doom.

Think I got this, with the help of all of you that have posted.

The one-word female name is:

The way to get there is:

Chronological order of movies, with the middle position being 0 = 867 5309

I would never have gotten there. Very clever puzzle, and very smart to figure it out!

I got this immediately, and then started working through it, if that makes any sense. Funny thing was, for the longest time, 9 was Hook. And I realized it wasn't Hook. But even though I realize it isn't (it's Lincoln, correct?), I still look at that clock and think Hook when I see 9.
