Up until a few months ago, I thought a "sneak-preview" for a film was a really long movie trailer that you watched on TV at a certain time. Then when I heard on the radio, "Win tickets to a sneak preview of..." I thought it was a really long trailer that you went to the theatre to see. I found out what it really was when my friend was all excited because she won tickets to a sneak preview and I was all, "Why are you so excited about a movie trailer?" Then she told me.

I used to believe that special effects in films were done by people wearing camera-proof clothing who moved stuff around on the screen.

I used to believe that in the "olden days" when films were first made in black and white that every body moved around very very quickly and had lots more energy back then....... actually I still believe that!

I used to think that all of the films from WW1 and 2, etc. were reenactments of the actual thing!

I used to believe that producer Fred Fuchs was Fred F***s. I guess that was because I wasn't wearing glasses and the "h" looked like a "k."

My grandmother allowed me to watch Stephen King's "IT" at an obscenely young age. For years afterward, I thought that if I flushed the toilet, a demonic clown would come out of the toilet and kill me. :-)

I used to think that every time I watched a movie on tape, the narrator would have to narrate live so they would have to immediately stop whatever they were doing to come and add the voice for my movie. One Christmas Eve I played "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" nine times and I remember thinking "Wow, he must be tired of telling me this story so many times."

While in San Antonio on business a few years ago I found a "Duke Skywalker" T-shirt for my stepfather, a Star Wars fan, that said "May the Horse be with you." My stepfather was very entertained -- my mother stared in perplexity because that's what she always *thought* they were saying, and there never was any horse in the movies...

many moons ago (well, i'm not that old) i was at the cinema with a friends of mine and a trailer for a new film came on. after a few film clips it said "tom cruise", then some more film clips and "renee zellwigger", then a few more clips and "jerry maguire" and i turned to my friend and said "i've heard of the 1st two, but who's she?". sadly i hadn't realised that jerry maguire was the name of the film... this 'friend' has never let me live it down and bought me the video a few years back just to rub it in!

When I was a kid, I thought that Ingmar Bergman and Ingrid Bergman were one and the same person. I also thought that Ingmar Bergman was a woman. Strangely enough, I believed that Candace Bergen was somehow related to Ingrid and Ingmar.

My parents told me that if you touched the cinema screen you woukld be electrocuted. This was clearly just a ploy to make me behave at the cinema, but I believed it for years, as no-one ever touched the cinema screen!

I saw Batman when I was eight. It completely freaked me out, because here was this human guy, not in any way superhuman, leaping around in tights of a night. It made me suspicious. I suspected several adults of being secret vigilantes.

I used to believe that the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz was actually a giant, bent double with an animatronic head. I do not know why.

I used to believe that every movie had a painted backround and nothing was real! I would always say it looked so real!

I used to believe, after watching "The Blob" at a young age, that having nothing touch the floor (i.e.- my bed covers) would keep it from oozing onto my bed at night. That fear diminished, however, during the winters, since the Blob couldn't survive in the cold.

There's this Disney movie called "The Great Mouse Detective", about how the mouse who lives in Sherlock Holmes's house is also a detective.

In the very beginning, when Fidget was about to kidnap Olivia's father, there's a shot of the door handle moving up and down, and Olivia yells "What's that?"

I used to think that she said "The satch!" and that a satch was another word for a door knob.
