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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

When I was about 7, I thought that The Wizard of Oz just went from black and white to color and back again. It wasn't until a few years later, when watching the movie again, that I realized Dorothy went over the rainbow and that's why everything is in color.

After seeing a Friday the 13th movie I was scared to death of anything going into my ears while I slept. I believed though that if I slept with the covers up over my ears I'd be protected from Freddy Cougar stabbing my ears with a q-tip. I still sleep like that and can't sleep unless the blanket is over my ears.

When I was 5, my parents inadvertantly took me to the drive-in to see Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds". They didn't know about his films and didn't know a film called "The Birds" wouldn't be OK for kids. My uncle and Grandmother lived with us at the time. My uncle told me that if my Dad didn't brick up the fireplace, the birds would come in and peck me to death (as in the film). I was scared to death for weeks, and had to sleep in my Grandmother's room for protection.

When I was young my father told me that it was his job to pull the MGM Lion's tail and make him roar. I believed that for years and even bragged to my friends about it.
