There is nothing more exciting than a film crew from La-La-Land moving into your neck of the woods for a few months to shoot the next Hollywood blockbuster – especially, when some of the movie industry’s top actors are attached to the production. Seriously, how many of you have gone on a star search after hearing a movie was going to be filmed in El Paso?

However, what's interesting is that while researching some of the films rooted in El Paso, we discovered a number of movies that we didn't realize were shot here. Perhaps that is because only portions of the movie were filmed in these parts, or maybe we suffered some sort of blackout during the time it all took place. Nevertheless, here are five movies we either forgot, or never knew portrayed scenes of El Paso, Texas.
