Thanks to my cousin, I used to believe that Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street) lived in his attic. I guess he was bitter because when he was little he was told JFK's ghost lived there. I bet Freddy Krueger and JFK make great roommates!
At the end of the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade I thought that Harrison Ford and Sean Connery really got immortality because they drank off the ("real") holy grail. That made me jealous of them that they were so priviledged to be in a movie that makes them immortal. In a way of course - I was right.
When I was about 7 my family and I went to a theme park that was dedicated to movies. When we were walking out I noticed a topiary that had a sign that said "Edward Scissorhands was here". Until I was 10 I thought that he was a spy and that Scissorhands was his codename.
The very first movie I saw in the theatre was E.T. I was very distressed as I thought E.T. was going to come out of the Exit doors and get me!
My boyfriend used to believe that in every movie, they had to at some point say the name of the movie- to remind the audience of what they were watching.
I used to believe that if a movie showed a character as a kid, and then showed them older, that they had had to wait for the actor to grow up in order to film the rest of the movie. So basically, I thought a lot of movies took 10 or 12 (or 20) years to make.
when I was little I thought if you drew a door like on beetlejuice you would actually go through to the other side,so I drew a door,knocked 3 times and nothing happened..sad day
I used to think Superman was real. My dad showed me a picture of George Reeves from the '50s Superman show and said he was Superman and that he fought in World War II. Dad then told me that Superman retired to live in Queens, in a house right down the road from our own. He refused to take me there.
My little brother used to believe that every time you watched a film, the actors/actresses had to act it every single time!
until 2weeks ago i though a lightsaber was called a light saver
I used to believe that in crime scenes at movies, people really was killed...
I used to be glad that Japan was so far away from America because Godzilla, Mothra and all the giant movie monsters were always trampling and scaring everyone over there all the time!
We used to listen to the soundtrack to _Fiddler On the Roof_ constantly when I was little. When the second daughter is leaving home, she says, "Papa! God alone knows when we shall see each other again." I heard this as "Got a long nose when we shall see each other again." I figured she meant "we'll be very old," since the oldest person I knew, my grandmother, had indeed got a very long nose.
i used to believe you needed huge tapes for movie theaters
When I was little(r), I first saw Edward Scissorhands. I watched it with my mother, and while she was crying her eyes out I comforted her by saying: "It's ok mum, some farmers with pitchforks will kill him for you." I never could understand why she just cried harder. I was terrfied of him and assumed he was real.
I used to believe that Agatha Christie, Angela Lansbury, and Jessica Fletcher were all the same person. I was finally corrected after "Beauty and the Beast" came out, when I said, "Wow, I can't believe that's Agatha Christie doing the voice of the teapot."
There used to be a movie I loved as a kid called "The brave little toaster" and my favorite character was the Toaster. I was so into the movie that I thought that my toaster was secretly alive too and I would go as far as unplugging it and taking it to my room to take care of it. My ma got annoyed with it real fast and ended up hiding it from me and only taking it out when she needed it.
When I was Little, I used to watch Movies over and over again. Untill my mom had to hide them from me. I loved the movie HomeAlone. So I used to think that "Uncle Frank" was up the fosit in the bathtub. So I used to yell up the Fosit. "UNCLLLEEEEE FRAAAAAANNNK???".
I believed that chitty chitty bang bang ended at the point where they all first get in the car and it flies, this is like 15 mins into the film but my mum had taped it but cut the rest off so i was very distressed to see the film carry on after this point and you can imagine my distress at seeing the childcatcher for the 1st time!
As a child (and, if I'm brutally honest, as a young adult) I used to believe that Sigourney Weaver was an aristocratic British actor: Sir Gornay Weaver.
