Big photos below.
Yesterday, as part of our continuing look at Hollywood-Colorado connections (including posts featuring the ten best movies filmed in Colorado and ten memorable flicks set in Colorado but not filmed here), we compiled ten Hollywood movie misses filmed in our fair state. Today, we've flipped the script to spotlight ten smashes at least partially shot in Colorado and touted by FilmInColorado.com. Look below to count down our latest top ten, complete with posters and descriptions from the film office.

Number 10: Christmas Vacation (1989)

@Steven Fowler I like a lot about "Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead," and I think Denver looks great in it. But it didn't make nearly as much at the box office than these films. Thanks for the post.

@Steven Fowler Well, the subject does say "*hit* movies"...

That said, the list did leave off "In the Line of Fire".
