I didn't know about dubbing until I saw Titanic when I was like 11. I always thought the actors spoke so many languages!

When I was little, after seeing "The Wizard of Oz," my dad told me that Judy Garland had actually died in real life, in a tornado in Kansas. What a coincidence! Either he was messing with me or he didn't want to tell me the sad truth. Either way, I told friends for years about this amazing coincidence, and didn't find out the truth until I was well into my late teens. I asked my dad about it and he doesn't remember telling me this, but he thinks it's pretty funny.

In Mary Poppins, I understood that Dick Van Dyke played both the roles of Mr. Dawes, the old man who ran the bank and Bert, the Chimney Sweeper. However, I thought they filmed the scenes when he was a young chimney sweep, then waiting 60 years to film the scenes where he was the old man. I don't know why it didn't occur to me that they'd put him in makeup to make him look old, or why I didn't take into account that if 60 years had passed, why all of the other characters still appeared not to have aged.

My mom had a bunch of classic silent Laurel and Hardy movies (8mm) which the family as a whole would watch on rare family nights. There was a quote that went something like "You have smirched my character, I demand an apology". Being the dopey kid I was I turned it into, "You have smirched my apology". Repeating this wonderful quote got me lots of laughs. It was only about at the age of 34 or so that I realized why they were laughing at me!

When I was a child I watched Young Frankenstien, with my family. Not being intimately familiar with the Frankenstien story I believed that this was the REAL story. for Yyears afterwards I would correct people on the proper pronounciation of 'Fronkunsteen' and 'Eyegor' and how misunderstood the real Dr. Frankenstien was.

I thought live-action films were very, very well-drawn cartoons.

The first feature-length film I ever watched was "The Never-Ending Story". It was longer than any TV show I had ever seen. For years, I was convinced that it was called "The Never-Ending Story" because it was so long.

My parents frequently had my older brother baby-sit me. I remember one night we were watching TV...and it was past my bedtime. My brother was 15 and I was 9. My brother decided he wanted to watch Candyman. He tried to make me go to bed but I insisted on staying up until our parents got home. I didn't like sleeping not knowing where they were. So, I ended up watching Candyman at 9 years old. For years afterwards I was scared to go into a dark bathroom.I was convinced the Candyman would reach through the mirror and impale me on his hook. After I was finished using the bathroom I would step out into the hallway, reach around the door and turn the light off. God forbid if the power went out in the house and I had to go. I would scream and cry.

To this day I still turn the bathroom light off AFTER I step out in the hall. I'm now 21.

I used to try my hardest not to rewind or fast-forward videos, because I thought that each time you did that the actors had to play their parts either really fast or backwards. I felt sorry for them.

I figured out how women got pregnant from the movie "Grease" when I was six or seven years old. When Rizzo and her boyfriend are in the car about to have sex (I didn't know what they were about to do, of course), and the condom breaks, I thought it was a plastic ring, like the kind you get from cereal boxes, that they used as a symbol of their relationship. From that point on, I thought that if a piece of jewellery that a guy gives you breaks, you get pregnant.

The way I figured out she was pregnant was because she says she "skipped a period". Naturally, I thought she skipped a period at school, and thought, "Well, I'd skip gym if I was pregnant." I'd probably seen the movie 10 times before I was old enough to realize what was actually going on.

I used to think that the films Jaw's was called George because the main shark was called George - not quite as terrifying as Jaw's is it?

I used to think that black and white movies were shot in color. Wherein the character's skins were painted white and the director would wash the paint off after shooting.

When I was young I used to think that if you didn't take a movie out of the VCR as soon as the credits ended it would start playing backwards and I was terrified (and still am) of songs and movies playing backwards.

When I was young I used to sit and watch my favorite movie over and over until one day I somehow got the idea in my head that there were real actors living in the tv. When my mom asked me why I stopped watching my favorite movie, I told her that I wanted to give the actors a break. They were probably tired of performing the same movie over and over.

I used to beleive that because cartoons were drawn, films were too. I used to think that they used 'special pens' to do this.

I used to believe that when a person was filmed with a camera they ceased to exist in real life and would only exist in the movie.
One day I went with my mom to pick my dad up from work and for some reason the news was there, when my dad walked past the camera I freaked out and it took them hours to calm me down. Instead of telling me that my belief was wrong they said that if a person walked by really fast the camera wouldn't catch them.

I refused to watch the film "Independence Day" for years as I believed it was a film about Jesus so it would be really boring. No, I don't know why either.
