Before I could read, I used to believe that movie credits were the book version of the exact same movie, so couldn't figure out why people who could read would stick around to see the film.

As a small child, I used to believe that Elizabeth Taylor (the actress) and Queen Elizabeth (the queen) were the same person. I think I figured out the difference around 3rd-4th grade (1962), but I was really confused there for a while (both were in the news a lot back then).

As a child, I didn't know what rewinding a tape was. I always assumed that the actors just got back into position and some would even get fed up with having to do the same scene over and over for me. I tried not to rewind it too many times because I was afraid they were going to yell at me that they were tired of having to do it over and over. The funny thing is that recently, here in the US, they have started showing commercials for TVO (I think) where you can rewind live tv and the actors pretend like they are having to do it all over again. One even says, "Do you think we will make it this time?" (the scene is about a car in the air apparently trying to make it to the other side) and the other actor replies, "Do we ever make it?" and the car proceeds to fall. So apparently I wasn't the only one to believe this.

So, I'm the only one in the world that spent over 20 years thinking they were Life Savers instead of Light Sabers in Star Wars, huh? And actually, at about 18 I decided they were Light Savers, even though they were completely made of light...yeah, I'm quick

I used to think that "The Omen" was about a bunch of people who could only say "O", the O-Men. I know this is wrong now, even though I'm about 5 years too young to actually watch "The Omen".

I used to believe that the actors/actresses in black & white films would spend hours sitting in a make up chair having white powder spread all over them and black and gray accents would be added here and there to make them look black and white. i would think 'gee those prop guys must spend a lot of time painting the props/floors/walls black and white!' I never quite understood why they would spend their time doing that...but i soon came to figure that the film was black and white...go figure!

I used to believe that a dubbing mixer in the movies mixed dubbing for the actors boots. I couldn't understand why they needed so much.

Coming from a small town with small cinema 1 screen managed by a middle aged man and lady (husband & wife) when the programme started with the adverts
Pearl and Dean. For many years i thought that the old couple were called Pearl and Dean and addressed them as such when i saw them in the foyer etc

I always wanted a pony when I was little and used to believe that the horses which were killed in cowboy films where really killed !!! I used to think - "I only want ONE, you think they could spare me a pony instead of shooting so many in one go!"

When the advertized a movie
"AT A THEATER NEAR YOU"
I thought they would not run the movie if they found out you were not from near there.

When I was about 4 or 5, I used to think that black and white movies were black and white because the people wore black and white clothes! I was actually caught on a home movie saying that!!

In the Indian fil industry, songs in movies are an absolute necessity. Background sining is therefore done by a number of background singers for the actors on camera.
When I was a kid i used to think that every actress sang exactly like Lata Mangeshkar or Asha Bhosle!

when i was about 6, having just seen mary poppins, i believed that if i drew a picture on the floor, i could jump into it and be transported to the place in the picture. i remember standing in a friends kitchen on a rainy day making all my friends take it in turns to jump on pictures that we'd drawn and wondering why it wouldn't work

I used to believe that unless a movie was really good, it would not be released to the general public. It made sense in that why would anybody want to see a bad movie? The illusion went out the window the day I saw 'Police Academy 2'.

I still think it would be a good idea, though.

When I was much younger I was amazed when watching old war movies that all the german soldiers could speak and understand english, isn't it funny how some things take years to fall into place

When I was small (4 or 5) I believed that the monsters in the Japanese monster flicks were as tall as buildings and that there were a bunch of operators within the monster to operate its movement.

When I was little I used to think when you have watched a video I couldn't rewind it back to the beginning, because actor or actress would start doing things backwards in real life when the film rewinds. So I never used to rewind them back to the beginning. It has become a little annoying habit now.
