I used to believe anyone killed on TV or in movies were prisoners from death row.

I used to believe, when I was 7 or so, that actors who died in movies REALLY died. I was horrified.

When I was around 8 or 9, I used to believe that when people died in tv shows and movies via guns or jumping off a cliff, they really died. My explanation for this was that prisoners on death row volunteered for the job and were substituted in at the last second, since they were going to die anyway.

Actors in western films really died when they were shot. That's why the cast often consisted of older men who didn't have much remaining lifetime anyway.

I used to believe that when people died in movies, they really died in real life. I always felt sorry for the people who ended up dying in movies.

When I was younger, I believed all the action sequences in films were very real. All the people that got shot, I figured them to be criminals or dissidents forced into acting, stomach wounds were aimed for unlethality and the head wounds for people who were to be executed anyhow.

Movies with a lot of death were quite puzzling to me, wondering how they managed to get all those prisoners. Later, someone told me that people had bags of ketchup under their clothes and the guns were firing pellets.

I used to believe that when an actor died on-screen it was real. And I always used to be astonished when I saw the same actor in another movie, and went about asking people very seriously as to how did they survive!

When i was younger than 11, i belived that people risked and sold their lives for movies. So i say to my daddy, how come people die for movies, like that guy got shot with an arrow and died, why whoud he do such a dumb thing. Dad, i thought that guy was dead (as i saw the same actor in another movie) he said, yea in the movie. I was puzzled, so im thinking harder, people die then come alive and die again? lolz... i found out by watching how they made the movie...

I used to believe that in movies like star wars, when a character died, they were murdering the actors.

When i was little, i used to think that the bad guys really died in the movies. But in order not to kill a good person, they used people in prison to play the bad people.

I used to believe that when bad guys got shot in the cowboy and indian movies, that they were really bad guys from the prisons being shot as punishment for their crimes! I got worried when I saw the scenes where lots of people died thinking what a lot of bad people lived in the world.

top belief!

When I was alot younger than now and went to the Saturday morning cinema, I thought that all the cowboys and indians who were shot in the films were prisoners who were sentenced to death. No one had explained about stuntmen and blank bullets!

When I was I kid, I wondered how they managed to show so many people get kill in the movies. I had heard that some people committed suicide, putting an end to their lives privately. Quite sensibly, as an imaginative child, I used to believe that film makers would set out to the goomier parts of the city to set up a stand or roam with big signs recruiting suicidal individuals to participate in their upcoming movie, so that they may be killed before the camera during a scene and to the great enjoyment of future movie audiences.

I was very naieve when I was young (still am). I don't remember the year, but I was maybe 7 or so; that would have made it '67. When I saw a movie called, "Your Cheatin' Heart" about Hank William's life, starring George Hamilton I thought Mr. Hamilton was actually Hank Williams and died right there before my eyes. I cried and cried about that.

when i was little.. anytime i watched an action movie where someone gets shot and died, i thought that the directors just found a person who wanted to die and killed them for real...

I used to puzzle over how they got people to agree to die on films and TV programmes. I worked out that the producers must have the contacts for all terminally ill people in the world and would phone them up to persuade them that as they were going to die anyway, it would be better if they did so on a film and earnt money to leave to their family. I never did work out how they got people just to be injured and mutilated! I remember seeing a two-parter of Batman when Robin was stuck in a giant clam till the next episode a week later. Obviously he had a luxury apartment inside the clam for the rest of the week.
