When I was little i thought that the part at the begining of movies where it says this film has been modified to format your screen.. meant that they took parts out of the movie.

Once me and my brother accidently walked into the X-rated section of the movie store, of course we didn't see the sign really high out of view that said "ADULTS ONLY". When I looked at the cover of these films I thought that they were exercise tapes like my mom had because the men and woman on the covers were barely wearing anything!

I'm from Germany and as a kid i used to believe while watching an american series that the actors starring in that series had to learn german ...I really didn't notice that those voices weren't their real voices.

I used to beleive.....

that going to the movies made it nightime. When we'd go in it was daytime and when we would comeout it would be night time. The first time we left a matinee I was truly dismayed.

I also used to beleive that when you turned the TV off, the next time you turned it on the show would start up again where it left off....

when i was young, i had never seen A Nighmare on Elm Street and i didn't know that Freddy Krueger was the villain from that movie, i always just assumed that when people talked about Freddy Krueger they were talking about a keebler elf. i guess i thought this because Krueger and Keebler sound a bit alike, and i think there's a keebler elf named fred or something. anyway, so whenever someone talked about being scared to death of Freddy Krueger, i would laugh at them hysterically because i would always picture them being scared of a keebler elf. i believed this until i was 14 years old, when i went to a wax museum, and there was a wax figure of Freddy Krueger, and it said that he was the nighmare on elm st. villain and all, and then i understood why the other kids would look at me funny or run away whimpering when i laughed at them for being scared of him.

I used to believe that Orson Welles (the filmmaker) had also written the famous books "1984" and "Animal Farm", which recently I found out were in fact written by George Orwell (the actual author). And "by found out" I mean just ten minutes ago.

When I was little, watching the movie Look Who's Talking, I decided that Kirstie Alley and John Travolta were married, and the parts where they filmed them "having sex" (rolling around in underwear) was really them in their home. I assumd the camera men just went there and filmed them doing the deed and then used it in the movie.

When I was little, I used to love watching horror movies. However, they scared me so much that I would never watch the "scary" parts.

Despite that, I loved The Nightmare on Elm Street series.

I tried to watch the scary parts, and they gave me nightmares.

I tried to not go to sleep for quite a while after that, because I was scared that Freddy was going to come get me again, although I had lived through the first one. He had killed all the survivors from the movie so naturally there was only me left to kill...

I used to believe that if you made a movie film, the pictures would be kept in a pretty coloured envelope just like still photographs, except that the content of each picture would keep moving according to the piece recorded by the camera. For some reason, I never associated a home-made movie with a movie of the kind seen in a cinema.

I used to think that the world was black and white until some clever person invented colour and painted everything. This was because I used to watch the old black and white films......

My parents allowed me to watch Hitchcock's "The Birds" when I was about 7 years old. To this day I so believe, in the fall when the birds are migrating and sitting on wires, that they are about to attack that the hair on the back of my neck stands up and I have a compulsion to RUN to safety.

My son, who was at the time about 7 years old, was very easily frightened. A friend wanted him to watch the movie "Something Wicked This Way Comes," which is a Disney movie, but sort of scary, nonetheless. Of course, I didn't allow him to watch it. But the friend described the movie for him, but made it sound very innocuous. However, he mentioned a scene where a merry-go-round goes backwards, which was enough to send my son over the edge. Later that night, there was a knock at my door, and my son appeared, crying, saying "Mommy, I'm afraid - Something Wicked is coming this way!"

I used to believe when it said "Only In Theaters" during movie previews that the movie would never come out on video and that if I didn't see it in the theaters, I would never see it again.

I was quite disappointed when I finally watched "The Godfather" - as I grew up I thought the three parts were a chronolgical life story of James Brown.
