After watching the film Mary poppins when I was a little girl, I was convinced that if I clicked hard enough, my bed would make itself.... It didnt work. Unfortunately, it didnt stop me trying to slide down the banister, and the result was a broken arm.
I never got around to trying tea on the ceiling, as of that day I stuck with flying kites.
When I was young, I asked my mom how they filmed stuff like people jumping off cliffs, and she explained that they'd have a stuntman jump and land on a cushion, and then they'd move the cushion and show the actor on the ground, as though he'd landed there. Somehow, I got it turned around, and thought that if the stuntman did the jump, he'd actually land on the hard ground, and then they'd pick him up and put a cushion under him and pick up the filming again. I couldn't understand why that would prevent him from getting injured, or why I hadn't see these cushions in the movies.
This is very sad - my neice (22) believed that the 'bloopers' at the end of animation movies like 'Toy Story' where real - she really believed that it was strange that they would have made such mistakes in filming an animation.
While everyone else listened to her in stunned silence I broke it to her gently pretending that she was just joking (I'm not too sure if she 'gets it' though).
My sister and I used to "play pretend" and we would often act like characters from Disney movies we had seen.
I knew that I was better then my sister at acting because I was convinced that which ever character I played I looked and sounded exactly like them.
When I was little we went to a lot of movies, which I loved, but I could never figure out how all the people, horses, etc. got on the stage behind that curtain!
i used to believe when a woman gave birth on television it was real. I found it very hard to believe u could talk and actress into doing that. I changed my mind when i was asked to play Tamar in a church play.
I used to believe Lindsay Lohan had a real twin and that people were not showing her very much to keep her twin a secret.
I used to believe that the killer in the 'Scream' movies was named "Scream-Killer"(he's actually named Ghostface) and was the polite serial killer because he used to call people before killing them.
Until I was about 10, I never understood why people claimed to have cried during the Disney movie "Bambi". That was because I had never registered the fact that Bambi's mother had been shot and died - I was under the impression that she had been hit with tranquilizer and taken to a wildlife preserve. At the time it seemed like a perfectly good explanation to me. Wouldn't you be sad if your mom was taken to a preserve and you weren't?
Of course, the logic doesn't stop people from teasing me relentlessly.
In the film 'Pulp Fiction', there is a line "Check out the big brains on Brett". my family has it as a soundbyte on the computer. As a little kid, I heard it as "Check out the big brains on BREAD"! I pictured a giant brain on two pieces of HUUUUUUUUGE white bread.
i used to believe that actors in the film actually worked on screen in the movie theatre as on a stage and they come out when the theatre gets empty.
I used to think that Dr. Doolittle (Dr. Doolittle) and Eliza Doolittle (My Fair Lady) were related to one another- amazing, since "Dr. Doolittle" is also "Professor Higgins"!
I used to believe that Ben Stiller and Will Ferell were the same person.
I used to believe that Al Pacino and Al Capone were the same people.
When I was little I always thought that the actors loved each other in real life. I grew up miserable because I found out it wasn't true.
When I was younger, about 5, I thought Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" (Dystopian Sci-Fi movie/novel) had something to do with an orange getting stuck in a clock and had no clue why it would get rated X because of that. I know now that it is a very violent movie and is condemned by Catholics.
I once asked someone how they made it look so real when people got shot in the movies...
The response was that they find people who want to commit suicide and who look enough like the actor (who was going to be shot) and they'd use them, with real bullets.
I used to believe that when I movie came out in theaters they only had one copy of the movie and they passed it around to the different theaters across the country and that's why it would show in one place before another. Then several copies would be made to sell.
When I was about 3 years old, I was obsessed with the movie "The Big Rock Candy Mountain" In the movie, these two kids would meet two bears in their backyard. When they went down the slide on the playground, they would end up at the Big Rock Candy Mountain in a magical town. I would spend hours sliding down the slide in my backyard trying to get the the Big Rock Candy Mountain. After a very long while, I told myself that the only reason I couldn't get there was because I didn't have a magical bear in my backyard.
i don't remember what age i was but i used to think making a movie that took place over several years had to be filmed over like 20 years or something because i didn't think they took kids to be the young version of a character and another actor/actress for the older version. i thought they started the movie when the kid was like 5 or so and when they reached the right age for the next part of the movie they'd start filming again, with the same actor/actress, and so on, until the movie was finished. needless to say, i was quite impressed by the quality of the movie considering i thought for the movie to come out in theatres in 1998 or so, they had started filming in the 70's lol.
