Here is a simple list of some of my favorite movies. Please fill out the blank. I will even give you 4 choices!

1 The Sting

2 In the Heat of the Night

3 ?

4 Unforgiven

5 Braveheart

6 The Aviator

The ? is one of these four choices

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

The Bridge on the River Kwai

Rififi

Slumdog Millionaire

Please explain your choice. Knowledge tag is unnecessary.

I think the missing film is:

Rififi

Why? Because...

If you look at just the letters in each film's title which are Roman numerals, they form the Roman equivalent of their number in the list:

1 The StIng (I)
2 In the Heat of the NIght (II)
3 RIfIfI (III)
4 UnforgIVen (IV)
5 BraVeheart (V)
6 The AVIator (VI)

The remaining choices do not work:

The LorD of the RIngs: The FeLLowshIp of the RIng (LDILLII)
The BrIDge on the RIVer KwaI (IDIVI)
SLuMDog MILLIonaIre (LMDMILLII)

    $\begingroup$ Thanks :) Nice brainteaser! The comment about 'no knowledge tag required' threw me for a bit but when I spotted it you could have drawn a light bulb over my head! $\endgroup$ – Stiv Oct 4 '20 at 19:40
  • $\begingroup$ @Stiv how does Rififi has 7 hidden inside it ? $\endgroup$ – Hemant Agarwal Oct 18 '20 at 17:05
  • $\begingroup$ @HemantAgarwal It doesn't - it has 3, which is its position in the list $\endgroup$ – Stiv Oct 18 '20 at 17:57
